Gail Simone the popular writer who revitalized BIRDS OF PREY and wrote, IMO, a very lackluster arc in JLA CLASSIFIED #16-21 ("The Hypothetical Woman") will be taking over the scripting chores on WONDER WOMAN beginning with issue #13.

GS: This is a great question. First, I hate the supposed ‘dichotomy,’ that she preaches peace while fighting. This is not contradictory at all. It’s not ‘a’ or ‘b,’ it’s ‘a’ AND ‘b.’ It’s like saying a cop is a hypocrite when they say they want to keep the peace, just because they might have to wrestle a perp to the ground on occasion. Diana’s both. She loves the light, but she’s right at home in the dark, too. She can do dark.

FINALLY! Someone at DC gets that. I've been trying to explain that to people about Peacemaker for years (most recently to Toonopedia), that just because he's willing to fight for peace it does not make him nuts.

You and me both on this one. I didn't realize for the longest time that the "Comedian" in Watchmen was supposed to be Peacemaker because I didn't get the slur that somehow because Peacemaker had "Peace" in his name he was somehow a hypocrite for using military methods to quell disturbances. The cop analogy is well taken. :-/

Of all the transformations that the Charlton Action Heroes have suffered at DC, the changes made to Peacemaker are the most hurtful. \>\:\-\(

Have you seen Blue Beetle? Peacemaker is part of the supporting cast of that title. They've changed him up a bit. It's an interesting take.

No I haven't. Is it perchance something akin to the organizational approach they took in L.A.W. That one I actually rather liked. \:\-\)

I didn't read LAW, but it's a pretty radical, yet very cool change. He's stopped wearing a costume, and is now a tattooed motorcycle-riding jaded reluctant mentor to the new Blue Beetle. It comes off a LOT better in the comic than how I'm describing it.

He's not insane, still a hero, and very cool. I'd suggest picking up an issue of Blue Beetle and giving it a try. It's a GREAT comic.
