WONDER WOMAN EARTH ONE VOL. 1

U.S. Price: $22.99

Talent

Cover by: Yanick Paquette

Written by: Grant Morrison

I have become a really big fan of the Earth One series DC has created.  With the first series of Batman and Superman being successful it was only natural that Wonder Woman would be next.  Plus anything written by Grant Morrison is a must to own.

Synopsis: In this new installment of the New York Times best-selling Earth One original graphic novel line, Grant Morrison (THE MULTIVERSITY) joins with Yanick Paquette (SWAMP THING, BATMAN, INC.) to reimagineWonder Woman for a new era. Encompassing the vision of her original creator, William Moulton Marston, Morrison presents a Diana who yearns to break free from her mother and the utopian society on Paradise Island to learn about the forbidden outside world. Her dreams may come true when Air Force pilot Steve Trevor crashes on their shores, and she must defy the laws of the Amazons to return him to Man’s World.

With DC’s full line-up announcement at Wonder-Con two weeks ago it will be interesting to see what the new status quo is for Superman.  Now that he has his powers back Superman is on a mission to create a new team to ensure the world is safe at last.  This story is going to be crammed in with a ton of crossovers so make sure you don’t miss a beat.

Synopsis:  It’s the start of a new chapter in the Man of Steel’s life that will change everything you know as the epic eight-part “Super League,” all written by Peter J. Tomasi, spans BATMAN/SUPERMAN, SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN and ACTION COMICS in April and May!

His time without powers made Kal-El realize that the world is in need of more protectors…more super-powered beings like himself. But where will he find such beings?
