We’ve wanted it for quite some time, and now we sort of have it: DC has finally announced a second solo title for Wonder Woman.
Announced in solicits, there’s going to be a new digital-first Wonder Woman comic as a revised version of “Sensation Comics.” The book will be an anthology to debut online soon (date yet to be determined), with the first print edition hitting in August. Take a look at the solicit:

Diana Prince: Amazon warrior, ambassador to Man’s world, or champion of women in need? All of the above! This digital-first anthology series will bring some of comics’ greatest talents to Themyscira, and give them leave to explore Diana, her world – and ours!
Gail Simone and Ethan Van Sciver kick things off when Oracle calls for help after the entire Bat-Family gets sidelined. But when Wonder Woman steps into the breach, Gotham City’s criminals get the surprise of their lives! Then, Amanda Deibert and Cat Staggs take Diana to school, where she meets her biggest fan!
IGN has more details on the series, naming people like Lauren Beukes, Cecil Castellucci, Amanda Deibert, Caitlin Kittredge, James Tynion IV, Georges Jeanty, Chris Sprouse and Cat Staggs as future contributors to the series. The series will feature “out of continuity” stories from the New 52, which should make this a bit more accessible as well.
It’s not quite as good as getting a print ongoing, but with Simone returning to the character we’ll take what we can get for now.
