DC Comics has announced the first issue of Wonder Girl by Joelle Jones and Jordie Bellaire is arriving on May 18, 2021.
“The story picks up with a brief vignette of Yara saying goodbye to her aunt at the Boise airport,” says Jones, “and then it’s straight on to Brazil! This trip opens up a huge world to her full of exciting characters. It’s incredibly exciting for her, but full of challenges both fun and dangerous.”
Raised in the far-off land of Boise, Idaho, Yara has always felt something has been missing from her life—and now she is headed to Brazil to find it. Little does she know her arrival will set off a series of events that will change the world of Wonder Woman forever. Her return has been prophesied, and with that prophesy comes the undivided attention of benevolent gods from pantheons beyond.
Danger lurks around every corner—but is this young hero ready for her journey? Find out in a debut issue you absolutely cannot miss—including the moments where Hera chooses Yara as her new champion and Yara receives her first golden, magical, gift from the gods!
Wonder Girl #2 is scheduled to arrive on June 15, 2021.
After receiving a sacred gift from the gods of Brazil, our hero seems destined for great things. Little does she know, another pantheon has been watching her as well. Hera, queen of the Greek gods, has chosen Yara to become her latest champion. But what need does the goddess have for a warrior of her own?
Let the training commence! Now crowned Hera’s champion, Yara needs to start acting like one. Enter Eros, the goddess’s favorite grandson and god of love. Can Yara resist his charms long enough to master her unpredictable new powers? All the gods are watching…are you?
Things are looking up for Wonder Girl, and it looks like DC Comics is pushing ahead with new comics.
