DC Comics continued its rollout of new storylines expected to hit in the wake of September's New 52-celebrating "Zero Month" today. On the heels of word that the Joker will appear in an upcoming "Batman" storyline by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo, the publisher's The Source blog today revealed that Wonder Woman will fly into the pages of "Batwoman" #13 for a crossover by regular creative team of JH Williams III and Haden Blackman.

"We're super excited to be tackling Wonder Woman for a bit in the upcoming arc of 'Batwoman,'” artist and co-writer Williams III said. “But also feel a sense of trepidation and responsibility, with her probably being the most iconic female hero of all time in comics. We needed to approach her with reverence and respect. And also wanted to give her a sense of purity in how she is drawn, something clear in her appearance, overt and forward. Now doing this, and then setting her next to Batwoman produces fascinating juxtapositions of their styles and nature of their characters. Batwoman being shadowy and a bit withdrawn, Wonder Woman being bold and vibrant. They do have things in common with their sense of purpose, but yet also things that make them quite different from each other, and them coming together brings out complimentary aspects much in the same way Batman and Superman do for each other as characters. The result is a compelling union of two iconic women that bring balance to how they can be perceived."

Williams' cover for the 13th issue seems an homage to classic Wonder Woman bondage covers dating back to her Golden Age origins. For more on the book, check The Source, and stay tuned to CBR News for all of DC's October plans.
