Birds of Prey scribe Gail Simone is taking over Wonder Woman. According to the NYT, she's the first woman to serve as the writer of the Wonder Woman comic.
I'm not a huge Wonder Woman fan (although rumor is that Joss Whedon is), but I first bumped into Ms. Simone's writing in an episode of the excellent Justice League Unlimited cartoon, and recommend her unhesitatingly.
Which gets me to thinking, who are the really interesting comic book writers working today? For the purposes of this question I'd exclude non-superhero graphic novelists, who have been getting some well-deserved attention of their own lately, but that still leaves Alan Moore, Grant Morrison, and, for the moment, the aforementioned Joss Whedon, who has been writing an X-men storyline and producing a Buffy comic. Who else is out there? What comics do you still read, wordwrighters? Or what comics do you remember from your comic reading days?
