DC Announces ‘Wonder Girl’ Comic Books to Begin Publishing in May!

The Legend of DC’s Yara Flor Launches in May With ‘Wonder Girl’ #1

Yara Flor’s heroic journey begins in a new DC comic book series by writer/artist Joëlle Jones! ‘Wonder Girl’ #1 available in comic shops and participating digital retailers on May 18!

Spinning out of DC’s bestselling Future State: Wonder Woman, acclaimed writer/artist Joëlle Jones makes a triumphant return to the character of Yara Flor in Wonder Girl, a new comic book series launching on May 18. You think you know Wonder Girl, but you have never seen her like this! Be part of the global fandom and get excited for Wonder Girl #1, where DC will officially introduce Yara Flor into the DC Universe!

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!

But before Wonder Girl arrives and is in the hands of DC’s global community of fans, a teaser for the new series will arrive in DC’s Infinite Frontier #0 on March 2. From her breakout appearances in Future State: Wonder Woman, Future State: Justice League and Future State: Superman/Wonder Woman, a young Yara Flor begins the search for her destiny and connection to the Amazons!
