Jodi Picoult Interview

For those of you who, like me, are anticipating Jodi Picoult's run on Wonder Woman, New Hampshire magazine has just published an Interview with Jodi Picoult. She has some fascinating things to say:


DC Comics came to me, after “The 10th Circle” was published and they saw the graphic novel in it and they were intrigued. The editor said we would really like you to write some issues of “Wonder Woman” for us. My first instinct was, “Are you kidding? I don’t have time to write Wonder Woman.” Then my kids said, “Are you kidding? You have to write Wonder Woman. It’s so cool mom.”...

You not only have to read up on Wonder Woman, you have to read up on her villains and the Justice League, because she is part of that. Your due diligence becomes the entire history of Wonder Woman....

I’m coming into the writing of Wonder Woman after the murder of Maxwell Lord. Which I found a very interesting psychological piece which was in the [writer Greg] Rucka run. Basically she winds up committing murder in front of this broadcast to humanity. She’s doing it because it’s the only way to save Superman. But it sure doesn’t make her look good. That’s a pretty heavy piece of baggage to carry around....


Go read.
