Joss Whedon writes introduction for DC's "Identity Crisis" Collection. New TPB collection from Brad Meltzer's 7-part "Identity Crisis" features introduction by Whedon.

DC Comics is the publisher responsible for Wonder Woman, which will be Joss' upcoming movie project.

Joss did contribute with TPB's introductions before, including one of the Planetary collections, but I can't quite recall which on it was.

Does this mean Joss is a reknowned comic book writer? And if so, did he have to be "knowned" first?
There was that time in the 80s when he was "nowned" but then he stopped. Now he's back in saddle, all re-nowned and ready for introduction writing.
I've heard that he's been knowned and verbed and adjectived, even prepositioned from time to time.

Err...
He wrote an intro. to Earth X.
i wonder why they picked joss to do the intro for this story? i mean, maybe if he had been proknowned at some point, but he hasn't yet.
I really liked this series of comics. I just recently (well it was about a year ago now) started getting back into comics and even though I wasn't sure who all the characters were, or what all the past story-lines were leading up to it, (though I was somewhat familiar with the DC universe because I was a Green Lantern junky growing up), I was able to follow along really well, and enjoy the story. It will be interesting to read what Joss has to say about it.

Joss wrote the intro for the second Planetary collection. He's a big fan of that series. (Same artist as he's working with on X-Men now which is probably not a coincidence)

Surprised about this though. Most readers didn't care much for Crisis after it was finished (Although pretty much all of them bought it). I liked it well enough myself, although the ending was kind of a let down I have to say. I wonder if Joss was one of the few to really love it. I assume he's not gonna write "Wow this is a mediocre book" in the intro, hehe.
"Most readers didn't care much for Crisis after it was finished"

I'd say opinions are split pretty evenly--but everyone who's read it *has* a fanatic opinion.

And Joss also wrote the intro for the Ultimates HC.
