Pop Culture Roundup: Wonder Woman! Scooby Doo! Doctor Who!

Cool news: DC Comics has announced a new Wonder Woman series akin to its Adventures of Superman title. Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman will feature stand-alone stories outside of regular DC continuity, making it friendlier to younger and new readers.

SENSATION COMICS FEATURING WONDER WOMAN will kick off with an arc written by fan-favorite Gail Simone with art by Ethan van Sciver.

 Long-term plans include stories by Lauren Beukes, James Tynion IV, Cecil Castellucci, Cat Staggs, Chris Sprouse, Caitlin Kittredge, Amanda Diebert, Renae De Liz and Georges Jeanty.

“As diehard fans of Wonder Woman, we are incredibly honored to showcase the world's most iconic female Super Hero through our Digital First publishing program," said Hank Kanalz, senior vice president of Vertigo and Integrated Publishing.

“With this series creators can dream up unique takes on the Amazon Princess to give fans a new adventure every week. We’re very excited about the line-up, and readers won’t want to miss the sensational action-packed Wonder Woman stories we have planned for the coming weeks and beyond.”

The first chapter will be released in August 2014 and monthly printed issues will include three chapters each, also starting in August.
