‘Wonder Woman 1984’ Movie Gets A One-Shot Comic

Wonder Woman 1984, the sequel to the 2017 film, has had a rocky road to the big screen. The date for the film has been bumped around on the schedule. Warner Bros. seems to have finally settled on an October 2 release date, and to get fans excited have announced a companion comic to be released just before the film’s premiere.

The comic will be a 32-page one-shot, containing two stories. Here’s how DC summarizes its contents:

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!

The comic will arriving first in Walmart stores on Sunday, September 20, and in open comic shops and digital retailers on Tuesday, September 29.
