ADAM HUGHES: EXCLUSIVE TO DC, ALL STAR WONDER WOMAN

DC Comics formally announced on Monday that Adam Hughes will write and draw All Star Wonder Woman as the first project under a new exclusive contract.

Wonder Woman followed All Star Batman and Robin, the Boy Wonder by Frank Miller and Jim Lee and All Star Superman by Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely in DC's All Star roster of titles.

"Wonder Woman was the obvious choice when it came time to select the next Al -Star title, said Dan DiDio, DC senior vice president and executive editor. " And having an artist of Adam's caliber and professionalism only cemented my belief that this book had to happen."

Hughes first mentioned his involvement at Comic-Con International. All Star Wonder Woman #1 is slated to debut summer 2007.

WOLVERINE: ORIGINS' NEW ARC

Wolverine: Origins #6, in stores on Sept. 13, begins a new arc, "Savior," by Daniel Way and Steve Dillon.

Here's how Marvel describes the first part of the arc:

"Wolverine comes face-to-face with a sinister Soviet from his past on his quest for his son. When Logan goes looking for answers, he finds the deadly Omega Red standing in his way.

"Logan may be in over his head, but he finds some help in some old friends. But will that be enough to overcome Omega Red? Especially considering Logan's state after the mind-blowing revelation from last issue, where he learned that his son is still alive and filled with hatred for his father above all else."

The issue features a variant cover by Ed McGuinness.
