“Wonder Woman was the hero I grew up with, she was my little-kid-living-room-cosplay. I have always wanted a golden lasso and an invisible jet, and I feel like now, writing Wonder Woman, I’m one step closer.”
The issue hits selves June 24,with cover by David Marquez and a card stock variant cover by Joshua Middleton.
