This year’s New York Comic Con didn’t bring a lot of big news, but what it did is pretty damned exciting — especially for those awaiting the return of a certain female superhero. Yesterday, DC Comics made an announcement that just might make you want do a little twirl; they’re kicking off a Wonder Woman ‘77 digital series based on the awesome Lynda Carter television series that ran from 1975 to 1979. Seriously, has there ever been a
cheesier better comic-to-television adaptation?
“Following in the steps of Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman and the Batman ‘66 series comes Wonder Woman ‘77, a continuation of the classic TV series starring Lynda Carter. The series will be written by Marc Andreyko with a number of artists, who will be named later, working on the interiors in addition to several covers drawn by Nicola Scott. The series will debut six consecutive weekly chapters this December and will be publshed in print in early 2015. The series will then resume in the spring and appear periodically throughout the year.”
Wonder Woman ‘77 will reintroduce Diana Prince’s groovy, transformative twirl, and hopefully usher in a whole new generation of fans.
