Update: DC has released new images and information about a series of new titles that will launch in March and April after Future State. 

Wonder Woman by new co-writers Becky Cloonan and Michael W. Conrad along with new artist Travis Moore returns on March 10 with Wonder Woman #770. 

"In this new story arc, Diana has to endure endless fighting – and partying(?) – as she tries to figure out why she’s in Valhalla, and why nobody seems surprised that she’s there," reads DC's official description. 

Original story follows

While the returns are still early, it looks like DC's January-February 2021 event Future State will be a road map to DC's ongoing titles and main continuity line when it returns in March. 

March will feature a mix of returning ongoing series - many with new creative teams and directions - and new launches that, while not a reboot, the publisher hopes will serve as a jumping-on point for new and existing readers.

Saturday at its Future State: Voices of Wonder Woman panel at Brazil's CCXP, the publisher announced the Future State: Immortal Wonder Woman writing team of Becky Cloonan and Michael W. Conrad will team-up again in March when Wonder Woman returns to the schedule with issue #770. 

Cloonan and Conrad will be joined by interior and cover artist Travis Moore. 

Future State: Immortal Wonder Woman stars Diana Prince, the main Wonder Woman of current continuity, at "the end of time," but a variant cover (above and below) to March's Woman Woman #770 also features the other 'Wonder Women' of Future State, including Nubia and Yara Flor who we already know will star in a Wonder Girl series by writer/artist Joëlle Jones.

Former Wonder Girls Donna Troy and Cassie Sandsmark are also featured on the cover, along with many of Wonder Woman's most recognizable supporting cast. But it remains to be seen if all those characters will be featured in the Wonder Woman series when it returns in March with the new Cloonan-Conrad-Moore team, or if the variant is more symbolic.

In brief comments during the CCXP panel Cloonan remarked that after the events of Dark Nights: Death Metal (of which Diana is the star), the series will be action-packed but will allow Wonder Woman to "have some fun."

Conrad reiterated her sentiments, adding that long-time fans of Wonder Woman should enjoy the series.

Wonder Woman becomes the seventh series DC has announced will launch or return in March with at least their Future State writers or writing teams - and sometimes their full creative teams - carrying over. Those series include the aforementioned Wonder Girl, new launches Swamp Thing, Suicide Squad, Teen Titans Academy, Green Lantern, and the returning Justice League Dark. Newsarama has previously confirmed that James Tynion IV and Jorge Jimenez will continue on the flagship Batman title.

I'm not just the Newsarama founder and editor-in-chief, I'm also a reader. And that reference is just a little bit older than the beginning of my Newsarama journey. I founded what would become the comic book news site in 1996, and except for a brief sojourn at Marvel Comics as its marketing and communications manager in 2003, I've been writing about new comic book titles, creative changes, and occasionally offering my perspective on important industry events and developments for the 25 years since. Despite many changes to Newsarama, my passion for the medium of comic books and the characters makes the last quarter-century (it's crazy to see that in writing) time spent doing what I love most.
