Yara Flor’s heroic journey begins as DC Comics has announced that Wonder Girl, the all new series from Joelle Jones and Jordie Bellaire, will hit newsstands on May 18, 2021.
From her breakout appearances in Future State: Wonder Woman and Infinite Frontier, a young Yara Flor begins the search for her destiny and connection to the Amazons in Wonder Girl #1. Acclaimed writer/artist Joëlle Jones makes a triumphant return to the character of Yara Flor with colours by the legendary Jordie Bellaire.
“The story picks up with a brief vignette of Yara saying goodbye to her aunt at the Boise airport,” says Jones, “and then it’s straight on to Brazil! This trip opens up a huge world to her full of exciting characters. It’s incredibly exciting for her, but full of challenges both fun and dangerous.”
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—including the moments where Hera chooses Yara as her new champion and Yara receives her first golden, magical, gift from the gods! Wonder Girl #1 by writer, artist and cover artist Joëlle Jones, with colors by Jordie Bellaire and lettering by Clayton Cowles, arrives on May 18 with a variant cover by Bilquis Evely & Mat Lopes, a 1:25 variant cover by J. Scott Campbell & Sabine Rich and a TEAM variant by Rafael Grampá!
