DC Comics just announced a special comic book tie-in for Wonder Woman 1984 that should help eager fans tolerate the wait time for the film to debut in theaters. The company unveiled Wonder Woman 1984 #1, a comic book that will directly tie in to the upcoming movie and also feature an original flashback story featuring Diana Prince and Steve Trevor.
In a press release, DC Comics announced that the first part of Wonder Woman 1984 #1 is, “co-written by Wonder Woman 1984 associate producer Anna Obropta and Louise Simonson (“The Death of Superman” story arc, Wonder Woman: Warbringer graphic novel), with art by Bret Blevins.” The story will focus on Wonder Woman’s encounter with burglars at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, a scene that early trailers for the movie focused on heavily.
Part two will come from the creative team of writer Steve Pugh (artist, Harley Quinn: Breaking Glass) and artist Marguerite Sauvage. In this story, a “reckless mastermind” steals Wonder Woman’s Lasso of Truth, and it’s up to Diana and Steve to get it back.
Wonder Woman 1984 #1 will debut in participating Walmart stores on Sunday, September 20th, 2020. The comic book will then be available at “open and operating comic book stores and participating digital retailers” on Tuesday, September 29th, 2020. This should give fans just enough time to read the book a couple times before Wonder Woman 1984 debuts in theaters on October 2nd, 2020.
