FOOL: Mark Millar Has Totally Ghost-Written Today's Wonder Woman #40

I'd heard the rumours, but today I saw the evidence. With Grant Morrison's Wonder Woman original graphic novel scheduled for November, it was just the chance that his sworn enemy and once bets friend Mark Millar would get in there first.

I understand that in return for Dave Finch drawing his next Millarworld book Arse Bandits, Millar would ghost write the issue, credited to Meredith Finch, while she worked on her new Zenescope imprint.

Millar has a slight history in this, he wrote some issues of Flash credited to himself and Grant Morrison single handedly, and Morrison ghost wrote an issue of The Authority, when they were both friends.

And while you won't see Millar's name on the issue itself, you will see a few of his trademarks. Firstly, the much expected discussion regarding Wonder Woman and Superman going beyond "vanilla" sexual relations.

Then there are the expectations regarding her policies of polyamory amongst her troops.

But of course the biggest giveaway of all, the line he uses in every comic book he writes.
