    Default New Wonder Woman YA Graphic Novels

    DC gave a bunch of more details on upcominc graphic novels at the 2019 ALA conference, and there are some Wonder Woman-related ones.

    Wonder Woman: Tempest Tossed

    Written by Laurie Halse Anderson, pencils by Leila del Duca, and colours by Kelly Fitzpatrick. The cover was posted over on Twitter, but no publishing date is given that I could find. Apparently, this was first announched over a year ago.



    Wonder Woman: Warbringer

    An adaptation of Leigh Bardugo's novel with the same name by Louise Simonson, illustrated by Kit Seaton. Bleeding Cool has some previews of the art and some publicity images. Apparently it's scheduled for January 2020.

    Diana: Princess of the Amazons

    As previously announced, and still scheduled for January 2020.

    There's also one about Nubia written by L.L. McKinney and illustrated by Robyn Smith.

    Thanks for the addition, Last Son of Krypton! It will be interesting how McKinney will approach Nubia and her origin, since there aren't that many stories about her, and I've been mostly unimpressed by the ones I've read.

    Louise Simonson on Wonder Woman - Warbringer: Diana thinks she may just not be good enough. Among Amazons, she feels like they think she isn't a full Amazon because she was molded from clay. This story is about Diana becoming an Amazon in her own special; that's the difficult choice - choices that appear to take her farther from her goal of being an Amazon, but ends up being closer to being the woman she was destined to be - Wonder Woman.

    Remember this is a solicitation that tell what Diana think her origin is.

    It's always possible they reveal Zeus being father at the end. After all, this an origin story.

    If I remember the novel, the Zeus parentage never comes up at all.

    I bought the novel yesterday. Am enjoying it so far, but with each turn of the page I dread the possibility of what you’re suggesting.
