DC Comics has made available an early preview of Wonder Girl #1 and covers for #2 and #3. But who is Wonder Girl? The character made waves when Yara Flor was introduced during DC Future State. Once dubbed Wonder Woman, she’s getting her own series on May 18th with Wonder Girl #1 by writer/artist Joëlle Jones.
“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.”
So what’s Wonder Girl #1 about?
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!
