Food for Thought: Wonder Woman's Lateness- LITG Style!

While perusing this week's installment of Lying In The Gutters over at Comic Book Resources, I found this piece of information about the lateness of the Wonder Woman title. Behold the genius and the madness:

"Two weeks ago on Wednesday, Allan Heinberg posted the following to his MySpace page, concerning "Wonder Woman."

The truth about WONDER WOMAN.

Hey, everybody,
According to the good people at DC Comics, WONDER WOMAN 3 is scheduled to arrive in stores next Wednesday, November 22. Please know that everyone involved (both creatively and editorially) regrets the delay between issues, but since WONDER WOMAN is a labor of love for all involved, we're extremely grateful to DC Comics for allowing us the extra time and to the book's loyal readers for their patience and understanding.

Hope you enjoy it,

Very shortly afterwards, it disappeared, without explanation. The delays I've been told are down to considerable rewriting - based in part on internet comments made by the same people who are now decrying its lateness. How's that for irony. "

Thank you Rich. I appreciate the honesty, while silently deploring the reason for the irony.

At this rate, if Heinberg is indeed looking to the internet, the fourth and fifth issues will never see the light of day.

Loren, I was really shocked that Heinberg would look to the internet. The guy is a successful television writer whose previous comic book work has been well received. Hopefully, he can reconcile the next two issues of Wonder Woman with the vision in his head and let the chips fall where they may.

The whole thing boggles my mind.
