While movie audiences await the October arrival of Wonder Woman 1984 in theaters, DC is bringing the world of the movie to comic pages. Here are the details on a special tie-in issue, along with a sneak peek at the art:
DC’s Wonder Woman 1984 #1 Comic Book: A Great Companion to the Highly Anticipated Warner Bros. Pictures Feature Film
New 32-Page One-Shot Features Movie Tie-In Story Co-written by Wonder Woman 1984 Associate Producer Anna Obropta
Arriving at Participating U.S. Walmart Stores by Sunday, September 20
Available at Open and Operating Comic Book Stores and Participating Digital Retailers Tuesday, September 29
BURBANK, CA (July 14, 2020) – Fans everywhere are anxiously awaiting Princess Diana’s next great adventure when Warner Bros. Pictures’ Wonder Woman 1984 arrives in theaters on October 2. But before being transported to the “totally radical” days of neon colors, leg warmers, portable cassette recorders, and hanging out at the mall, DC is getting you ready with a special one-shot comic celebrating director Patty Jenkins’s exciting sequel to the smash-hit 2017 Wonder Woman film.
The first story in Wonder Woman 1984 #1 is a direct tie-in to the upcoming movie and 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. When a failed burglary attempt causes a hostage situation at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, Diana Prince is forced to leave her teenage tour group behind so that Wonder Woman can save the day! But will she be able to bring 10 gunmen to justice and get back to her tour group in time?
The second story is a 1980s flashback by writer Steve Pugh (artist, Harley Quinn: Breaking Glass) and artist Marguerite Sauvage. In the ’80s, “greed is good,” especially if you have it all! A reckless mastermind has made the ultimate power move by stealing Wonder Woman’s golden Lasso of Truth, and it’s up to Diana and Steve Trevor to get it back before the worst happens!
Wonder Woman 1984 #1 features a powerful and dynamic cover by another great Wonder Woman artist, Nicola Scott. The book arrives at all participating U.S. Walmart retailers by Sunday, September 20 and all open and operating comic book stores and participating digital retailers on Tuesday, September 29.
