George Perez's letter to Diana in his final issue of Wonder Woman
posted Thursday, December 18, 2014 12:50:03 PM
Dear Princess Diana,
I just wanted to let you know how grateful I was that you
allowed me to document your adventures, and it is with great sadness
that I must now announce my retirement from the ‘Wonder Woman’ series.
I’ve learned a lot these past few years and I’d like to think
that I’m a better person for having followed your adventures and hope
that I did your exploits justice. As so often happens in life, it’s time
to move on to start working on that next chapter in the book of life (a
recurring image you’ll notice in my final issue). …
Well, that’s it for me. I’m glad your current troubles are
over and hope your future will prove less hazardous. In your line of
work I know that seems unlikely, but there’s no harm in hoping.
Take care, Princess Diana. And as they say over on Themyscira: the Glory of Gaea be with you.
Out today: Wonder Woman #62 (Digital)

Topic: Mr. Byrne....Q about Fearbook

When I was offered WONDER WOMAN there were a
lot of things that came immediately to mind -- not the
least of which being that I would have to be out of my
frigging mind to follow George Perez, even if it was
ten years later.
One of the actual story concepts that came to me,
tho, in the midst of my fear and trepidation, was to
wonder just how our Decent, God Fearing Nation
would respond to a woman who was walking around
claiming to have, you know, actually met the Greek
Gods. Bound not to sit too well with the Jerry
Falwells, I figured.
Unfortunately, this also seemed like a story that I
could not really handle properly in a monthly
superhero comic. (Hey! This was ten years ago!
Today, I know, I could do 200 pages of Wonder
Woman pacing her apartment worrying about all this.
Now that's comic books!) Then I was asked to
do the novel, and I realized that was a perfect place
to explore all the themes this idea suggested.
