DC Comics Announces Wonder Woman Mini-Series In Third Wave Of Convergence Tie-Ins


DC Comics continues to roll out their line of 40 two-part mini-series that will tie into this spring’s Convergence event, and Wonder Woman going’s to headline her own title. Different versions of the character have been mentioned here and there on other books, but this is the first, and perhaps only, book where she’s the star. The two-part book, simply titled Wonder Woman, will be written by Larry Hama with art by Josh Middleton. Here’s a brief description:

White-jumpsuit-clad Diana Prince is in the grips of a Domesday cult when her lover Steve Trevor leaps into the fray to save Etta Candy from vampires of Red Rain.

“White jumpsuit” and “Diana Prince” usually mean we’re going back to the mod era of Wonder Woman from the late 1960s and early 1970s. This was the period when Wonder Woman gave up her superpowers, learned martial arts, and travelled the world fighting bad guys. Oddly, the main story from this era centered on Diana avenging the death of Steve Trevor, and Etta Candy was nowhere to be found during the mod years, so perhaps this book is a bit of a reimagining of this era. That, or Diana’s found a Steve and an Etta from a different universe inside this weird dome thing everyone appears to be trapped in.

Larry Hama is certainly familiar with Wonder Woman, having edited her series for a couple of years in the late 1970s. He’s better known for his work at Marvel, but he’s a writer who knows his stuff and hopefully he’ll bring something cool to the book. Josh Middleton is an artist whose work I’ve always enjoyed, though I’m much more used to seeing him on covers than interiors. It’ll be fun to see him tackle Wonder Woman for two full issues.

The Convergence event begins in April in place of DC’s usual titles as the publisher moves from New York to Los Angeles, and Wonder Woman will run in April and May.

    According to Joshua Middleton on his blog, the promo pic is from a panel in the comic.. so I’m REALLY confused about this. Is it Diana Prince era or not?

    I am very confused about this whole convergence business..I haven’t read much about it. Does this mean that everything’s going back to the way it was before the new 52? That’s good news and bad news, will Wonder Woman at least keep the new costume?

    • Tim Hanley Says:

      It’s an event that brings back characters from a variety of universes, including the DCU before the New 52, and sort of pits them against each other. It’s just a brief interlude sort of thing, as I understand it, a way to fill the publishing gap while DC moves its offices. The New 52 will return as usual in June.
