DC has released a first look at pages from May 18's Wonder Girl #1 (opens in new tab) by writer/artist Joëlle Jones and colorist Jordie Bellaire.(opens in new tab)
The new series stars Yara Flor, who began her DC career as Wonder Woman in the DC 'Future State' event (opens in new tab).
"A young Yara Flor begins the search for her destiny and connection to the Amazons!" reads DC's description.
"Raised in the far-off land of Boise, Idaho, Yara has always felt something has been missing from her life—and now she is headed to Brazil to find it. Little does she know her arrival will set off a series of events that will change the world of Wonder Woman forever. Her return has been prophesied, and with that prophecy comes the undivided attention of benevolent gods from pantheons beyond.
"Danger lurks around every corner—but is this young hero ready for her journey? Find out in a debut issue you absolutely cannot miss—including the moments where Hera chooses Yara as her new champion and Yara receives her first golden, magical, gift from the gods!"

"Let the training commence! Now crowned Hera's champion, Yara needs to start acting like one," reads DC's description for July's issue. "Enter Eros, the goddess's favorite grandson and god of love. Can Yara resist his charms long enough to master her unpredictable new powers? All the gods are watching…are you?"
Look for DC's full July 2021 solicitations very soon.
Maybe someday a story starring Yara Flor will take its place among the best Wonder Woman stories of all time.
