    Haven't heard of those three, but excited nonetheless!

    It seems like Giganta will be taking either Diana's or Grail's side. Really like that they included her!

    Lupacchino's art is pretty wonderful. Great scoop.

    James Robinson is returning to DC to write Wonder Woman and he's bringing Giganta with him??? That is awesome! Grail is the icing on this cake! I'm also excited to finally see Jason and why he was hidden.

    Wait, why do you guys think Grail is apart of this?

    Either way, this is very exciting. Nice to see James Robinson back at DC.

    But, the article mentions
    The new trio's run is scheduled to run for six issues, from September to December.
    What happens after issue #36?

    I got scared there with that Bryan Hitch cover (BARF)

    James Robinson (This could be good, and I love what he did with the Earth 2 Version, or atleast what he attempted to do. *Wonders*)
    Emanuela Lupacchino is a good artist
    Carlos Pagulyan Never heard of him.

    I know. I feared for the worst.

    Eh, I don't care about the Jason plot/Darkseid War but Giganta is cool! Maybe I'll check it out.

    I don't think I've read any of Robinsons' works, are they good?

    Lupacchino is the big sell for me here. There's a lot of Robinson stuff I historically like, and quite a bit that I don't particularly think was good, but he's pretty good at working in the constraints of a "Big DCU Geoff Johns-Type Scenario" and still doing some interesting stuff with all the story plans and limitations those entail, so I'm cautiously optimistic. The mystery of "Jason" itself ... eh, you know. Kind of tacked onto the whole Darkseid thing and not that interesting. Grail is a cool character, though, so I'm excited to see more Grail. Darkseid is still a baby! A reincarnated baby! A baby that's the hate-child of Earth-3 Superwoman and Earth-3 Alexander Luthor with MAZAHS powers. EEEEEEVVVIIIILLLLLLLL.

    But yeah, Lupacchino. On Wonder Woman. About damn time! Her Supergirl (and Maxima, in particular!) run and her Starfire (featuring foxy Terra and foxy Dick Grayson!) run are just gorgeous. And she's done some other bits recently that I loved looking at, with a short stint alternating with Jimenez in Superwoman, getting to depict Lois Lane and Lana Lang and Steel and such.

    Robinson has been hit-or-miss for me in the past. Cry For Justice is still one of the worst comics ever written, let's not forget. But still? He's done good work in the past and I'm hoping DC and WB have a newfound appreciation for Diana after her movie did so well. So I'm going to assume that they know what they're doing.

    LOVE Emanuella Lupacchino's art! She's the real selling point for me. She's done great things with Starfire, Supergirl, and now she gets to draw the greatest female icon in comics, so I'm expecting great things from her.

    So, one classic Wonder-rogue confirmed? Excellent! Looking forward to seeing what this team can do with Giganta. Very curious to see how the Jason concept is finally used. If it means more chances to build up Grail as a credible Wonder Woman villain, then I'm all for it.

    All-in-all? Pretty happy with this news!
    Though much is taken, much abides; and though
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are,
    One equal temper of heroic hearts,
    Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
    To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

    Wow, I was not expecting this at all !

    Robinson back at DC? Lupacchino on Wonder Woman? The Jason/Grail storyline finally being addressed? The return of GIGANTA!? I'm hyped .

    I wonder if Robinson will bring in Donna given he wrote her for his Justice League run? Probably too early to hope for that.
