Wonder Woman will celebrate a milestone in January 2020 with a return to the legacy numbering system and variant covers through the decades.
The 2010s aren’t even over yet but one thing is already clear about the new decade: 2020 belongs to Wonder Woman. In addition to the trailer for the highly anticipated Wonder Woman 1984 movie, coming June 5, DC Comics announced plans to celebrate a major milestone for Diana Prince in the new year.
Starting in January 2020, the Wonder Woman title will return to the legacy numbering format in time to coincide with the milestone 750th issue, in stores January 22. Wonder Woman #750 will be a supersized 96-page prestige one-shot that will retail for $9.99.
This highly collectible issue will feature stories and art from legends of the comic book industry, and many of them have close ties to Diana Prince, having worked with the character in the past. Take a look at this all-star lineup of talented writers and artists: Steve Orlando, Jesus Marino, Greg Rucka, Nicola Scott, Gail Simone, Colleen Doran, Hi-Fi, Marguerite Bennett, Laura Braga, Scott Snyder, Bryan Hitch, Mariko Tamaki, Elena Casagrande, Kami Garcia, Phil Hester, Shannon and Dean Hale, Riley Rossmo, Vita Ayala, Amancay Nahuelpan, Ramona Fradon, Jose Luis Garcia Lopez, Emanuela Lupacchino, Liam Sharp, Bilquis Evely and Travis Moore. Joelle Jones and Trish Mulvihill will bring the cover to life.
To further commemorate the milestone, DC announced plans for decade variant covers tied to Wonder Woman #750. The variant covers highlight Wonder Woman from the 1940s all the way to the present day. Here’s a list of the artists attached to each decade:
- 1940s: Joshua Middleton
- 1950s: Jenny Frison
- 1960s: J. Scott Campbell and Sabine Rich
- 1970s: Olivier Coipel
- 1980s: George Perez and Laura Martin
- 1990s: Brian Bolland
- 2000s: Adam Hughes
- 2010s: Jim Lee, Scott Williams and Alex Sinclair
In addition to Wonder Woman #750, two highly anticipated young adult graphic novels will be hitting shelves on January 7, 2020. Diana: Princess of the Amazons, written by Shannon and Dean Hale with art from Victoria Ying, is ideal for young readers aged 8-12. Older fans aged 13-17 will enjoy Wonder Woman: Warbringer, a graphic novel adaptation of Leigh Bardugo’s classic origin story. Louise Simonson has teamed up with artist Kit Seaton to bring Bardugo’s story to life, and it’s perfect for newcomers to the mythology as well as longtime Diana Prince fans.
2020 is shaping up to be a year filled with Wonder Woman, and that’s a good thing. If you’re interested in purchasing any of these titles, make sure you speak with your local comic shop so they can add one to your pull list!
