Gail Simone to write WW

I see now that Gail Simone is going to be the new writer for Wonder Woman (via Monitor Duty). Maybe now, there'll be something auspicuous to come of this third volume.

Update: more evidence as to why we should hope so: while looking at the Dixonverse forum, someone tells what happens in WW #7:
Wonder Woman has been in search of her 'bracelet' in issue #7 and gets picked up the Metahuman Force and taken in for questioning. There is another witty/stupid exchange with a Sarge Steel who informs her she will be detained till they get info on some 'Purple Ray' power. When the Sarge says he was told to do this, WW says 'Violate The Geneva Convention?', Orders from the White House is the answer. I was surprised WW wasn't put in an orange suit and sent to Gitmo. I'm getting fed up with these moronic analogies to Gitmo. The people there are NOT superheroes, Cut the CR@P. Sorry, had to get that off my chest. If this is the crux of the WW III by DC, after Marvels Civil War, I'll pass. Still, Gail is a good writer, I'll give it a chance when she comes aboard.
As will I, provided she refrain from the kind of crap that takes place in this issue. Simply disgusting, that once more, the US government, even in a fictional universe, is being made out to look one-dimensional for the sake of negative attitudes towards government policy. Let's be clear, we don't want to hear constantly about how the local government is wrong and only the "Geneva convention" is right. That's one-sided, and it's something that needs to be refrained from for a change.
