Image Comics has announced the release date for the six-part miniseries.
Ming Doyle will illustrate the title, which is set in a future obsessed with celebrity, sports and war.
Model and athlete Mara Prince causes a global sensation when she manifests superpowers on live television.
"For a while I've seen a connection between superstar athletes and superheroes, both superficially and also in how each can be portrayed and dissected, lauded, and demonized by the societies they serve," said Wood, addressing the pressure that society puts on young athletes to perform flawlessly.
"Mara deals with a superstar female athlete who commits this very 'sin' of not being perfect, and finds herself facing down the worst of what we can throw at a vulnerable young woman."
The series was first announced in February.
Wood is currently working on Conan and The Massive at Dark Horse Comics.
Mara #1 will be released on December 26.
