With the unexpected arrival of new Amazons, our hero is forced to reckon with her past and forge a new path forward for her sisters. Little does she know, a great evil grows beneath the island and it’s up to this former guardian of Doom’s Doorway to unite her tribe before paradise is lost forever!

 

This unforgettable miniseries from writers Vita Ayala and Stephanie Williams, along with all-star artist Alitha Martinez (Future State) brings the fan-favorite character back to the DCU for good. After Nubia, the world of the Amazons will never be the same!

The world may know her as Wonder Woman, but once upon a time she was Diana, the young princess of Themyscira. Back then, she struggled to find her place on an island deemed paradise by many, but which was, to her, a prison. Trapped in her role as a royal and shielded from the harsh realities of Man’s World, Diana yearned for adventure, or at least a purpose. So when ancient texts portraying her home’s history go missing, she gets both. How far will our hero go to find the texts and the truths they’re hiding? Find out in this exciting story that promises to be a classic for for years to come!

 

Collected together for the first time, these backup stories by Eisner Award-winner Jordie Bellaire and rising star Paulina Ganucheau provide an intimate look into Wonder Woman’s upbringing and dangerous secrets of her past you’ll never forget!

 

Then, also on October 12, we will see another new miniseries, called WONDER WOMAN HISTORIA: THE AMAZONS. Now, this book was originally supposed to come out three years ago, but kept getting pushed back. It’s finally coming out, and I couldn’t think of a better time than now.

The wait is over, and the entire story of the Amazons can finally be told! Millennia ago, Queen Hera and the goddesses of the Olympian pantheon grew greatly dissatisfied with their male counterparts…and far from their sight, they put a plan into action. A new society was born, one never before seen on Earth, capable of wondrous and terrible things…but their existence could not stay secret for long. When a despairing woman named Hippolyta crossed the Amazons’ path, a series of events was set in motion that would lead to an outright war in heaven—and the creation of the Earth’s greatest guardian!

 

Legendary talents Kelly Sue DeConnick and Phil Jimenez unleash a reading experience the likes of which you’ve never seen, with unbelievably sumptuous art and a story that will haunt you—with subsequent issues featuring art by modern masters Gene Ha and Nicola Scott! One of the most unforgettable DC tales of all time begins here!

 

And finally, on October 19, DC will be releasing special edition reprints of some recent Wonder Woman books, including WONDER WOMAN #1 SPECIAL EDITION by Greg Rucka and Liam Sharp, WONDER WOMAN: TEMPEST TOSSED SPECIAL EDITION  by Laurie Halse Anderson and Leila Del Duca, and DIANA: PRINCESS OF THE AMAZONS SPECIAL EDITION by Shannon & Dean Hale and Victoria Ying.

So be sure to celebrate Wonder Woman and the Amazons this October by picking up one, or more, of these great books!
