Wonder Woman Renumbered At #600

The following comes from DC Comics blog site, written by Dan Didio.  Posted on December 8th or 2009....

The results are in!
The response to our call for Wonder Woman postcards was spectacular, and we got the message loud and clear. We asked for 600 and by the Oct 31st cut off, we had an overwhelming 712 postcards (nearly 800 by the time of this writing), so as a man of my word, starting in June 2010, DC’s Wonder Woman series will celebrate its 600th issue and continue on from there. And we promise that Diana’s anniversary issue will be one to remember! There are some big plans in place and big changes in store for our favorite amazon warrior, so keep an eye on The Source in the new year, because we will be breaking the news here first!
To be continued….

But that’s not all. We’ll be announcing some major news in relation to Wonder Woman early in 2010, including the roster of all-star artists contributing to the 600th issue. Until then, though, we’ll leave you with the issue’s cover, by none other than George Perez, who’s no stranger to the Amazon Princess.

I for one am glad by this decision.  Now this never actually came to my attention in the least, but once it was brought out, I was all for it.  It was exceptionally encouraging that Dan Didio decided this was important enough for fans and met their demand.  Now one thing is for sure, Wonder Woman #600 will be a MAJOR collectors Item.

But now, as #600 comes closer as days draw nearer, what are the plans for Gail Simone continuing her work on Wonder Woman.  I was very sad to see Geoff Johns leave the JSA only to have a much lesser writer take on the task, How much longer will Simone continue writing for the Amazon Princess?  I can't imagine anyone else writing for Wonder Woman other than Simone.  She's the best writer of 2009 and should hold off leaving this title for as long as possible.  I hear she's on board for the a while yet, but who knows how long that could be?  And what would Secret Six be like with her as well?  Gail Simone, I tip my hat to you and hope you.  If you ever write a novel, I'll be the first to buy it!
