During DC Comics’ Meet the Publishers panel at the San Diego Comic-Con, Grant Morrison appeared to talk up two upcoming books.
First on the list is Wonder Woman: Earth One Volume Two that Morrison will write with artist Yanick Paquette.
The Earth One series from DC has done very well, as each of the previous volumes (including Wonder Woman) have landed on the best sellers list. According to Morrison, he will continue to shape the Earth One Wonder Woman more in line with what William Moulton Marston envisioned.
Plot details are not easy to come by at the moment, but it looks like the villain of the story will be Paula Von Gunter who is being reimagined as a “Nazi Superwoman” who leads an invasion of Paradise Island.
“We’re kind of showing you cannot fudge with this island of women,” said Morrison. Though for the record the word that came out of his mouth was not fudge. “For 3000 years, they’ve been doing it better than you.”
There is no word on the release of Volume Two, but Morrison sees a trilogy coming from the story he is telling with Wonder Woman: Earth One Volume Two serving as the Empire Strikes Back of the series.
Also announced was Arkham Asylum 2, that Morrison will work on with artist Chris Burnham. Morrison plans to revisit the Batman #666 timeline that looks at a world where Damian Wayne grew up to be Batman. Arkham Asylum 2 will be 120 pages long, but again there is no word on a release date for the book.
Morrison said he has been very busy with film and television, which is why we haven’t seen much comic book work for him in the last year. Hopefully these two books will see a huge jump in sales and encourage Mr. Morrison to work on more DC projects in the future.
