    Default Will Rucka stay on past #24?

    So, solicits for June will likely tell us for sure, but so far, I can't find any confirmation or denial of Rucka staying past his original 24 issue contract. I can't even find if the annual will be counting as the final issue. But it seems to me that Rucka's building to something closer to two years, than wrapping up in 6 issues (or three issues per storyline).

    What do my fellow Diana fans think?

    I personally hope he does, at the very least.

    I think there's still a lot he can do with the franchise and in (re)building-up Diana and her world, and I would like to see Rucka continue to do what he's been doing on the title for the foreseeable future.

    Though if worse comes to worse, he's leaving behind a fairly solid slate to work from for the next writer.

    Oooh, yes, I should have said, I would like him to stay on as well. I don't want two Rucka runs on Diana cut short (Even though I love Mission's End so much)

    Writers can generally work on up to 4-6 books at a time - Rucka's also working on Lazarus, The Old Guard, Stumptown, and various Star Wars projects. So Black Magick returning doesn't mean he won't stay on Diana.

    I liked The Circle, but really disliked everything else Simone did with Diana (not all her fault, but I didn't like what she did with the Green Lantern - seemed pointlessly cruel). Never read Jiminez, but he would likely be popular and a logical followup to Rucka.

    If I had to choose someone (which I don't want to, since as stated, I want Rucka to stay around for at least another year), I'd go for Scott Snyder.

    I've spoken to one of the artist about this and they are staying on for the next arc? So I'm assuming he's staying as well?

    Are you able to say whether it's Sharpe or Evely? (I'm guessing it's Sharpe, because he's been really happy working on the book, and is the biggest name after Rucka).

    One thing I hope is if he doesn't stay is that unlike so many times they actually have editors tell the writers to even if they starting on a new arc not to blank slate the characters. I mean so many times great character development is lose because the characters did it to take a major step back.

    Agreed! I hope that since Rebirth is such a planned and successful group effort, that it won't happen. It's a very real danger, since 1) Diana always gets that treatment (Rucka and Azzerello have both said that new writers are told they don't have to read anything before they start writing for Diana), and 2) Rucka is working with Mark Doyle, the Batman group editor, rather than Eddie Berganza, the Superman group editor, who usually edits Diana's books, so there's a real chance that if Rucka leaves, the book will revert to back to the Superman group.

    I hope not the guy has been on file for sexual harassment. He still keeps his job. Azzarello does show it in his run on how he treats Wonder Woman myth.

    LOL and I totally believe it too! Poor Wondy has been suffering the most of the major DC characters, right up there with Green Arrow. I was initially excited to see Rucka back but his run has been a big disappointment to me and at this point I'd just assume take my chances with just about anyone else.

    If Rucka goes, I drop the book. There have been other Wonder Woman runs that I've liked, but his takes have been the only ones I've really gotten into.

    the problem is that after a great run like the 1st from rucka, th eones that come in are always crap.

    He barely started to tell his story, his story telling is better with many issues. Doesn't look like he will go out so soon, his new run is becoming a definitive on WW

    Not really, there isn't anything logical on Jimenez following up Rucka

    I hope Rucka stays on for at least another year to help cement Wonder Woman's current origin, supporting cast, rogues gallery, and status quo. There have been so many awful runs on this title since 2008 and Rucka has finally steered this book in the right direction.
    Currently Reading: Aquaman, Batgirl & The Birds of Prey, Green Arrow. Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps, Justice League of America, Titans, Wonder Woman, & Wonder Woman '77.
