BY February 23, 2021

Wonder Woman 1984 was initially supposed to release earlier this year. Unfortunately, the coronavirus pandemic forced movie theaters to close all around the world, and the film was pushed back (along with every other film with a summer release date). While we do have to wait a bit longer, there is an exciting treat coming our way! A Wonder Woman 1984 companion comic book will release before the film comes out on October 2nd.

Wonder Woman 1984 Companion Comic Book Is Coming

The one-shot comic book has been created specifically as a companion to the film, and will tie-in to Wonder Woman 1984. It will contain two stories. The first is written by Anna Obropta and Louise Simonson, with art done by Bret Blevins. It will follow an attempted burglary gone wrong, forcing Diana Prince to ditch her Smithsonian Museum tour group and save the day.

Steve Pugh is the writer behind the second story, with Marguerite Sauvage as the artist. In this story, Wonder Woman’s famous Lasso of Truth is taken by an unnamed villain. Prince will team up with Steve Trevor to ensure its safe return. Trevor’s appearance in the upcoming film has raised plenty of questions after his fate in the first film. So, we’re excited to see him again, even if it’s on paper for now!

Something To Look Forward To Regardless Of Movie Theater Status

We’re crossing our fingers that we actually get to see the sequel to Wonder Woman in theaters if they’re reopening this fall. However, as closures continue and COVID-19 cases rise, the future of cinema is uncertain. While we may find out that we have to wait even longer for the film’s release, this Wonder Woman 1984 companion will be a sure-thing to help get us through the wait.

The companion comic book to Wonder Woman 1984 will release at participating Walmart locations in the U.S. on September 20th. It will release on September 29th in comic book stores. In addition to the exciting new Diana Prince stories, there will be a captivating cover by comic artist Nicola Scott.
