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!"

Check out a preview of Jones and Bellaire's work from Wonder Girl #1. 

DC has also included a cover gallery (see below) of the first three issues of Wonder Girl including never-before-seen images like a Wonder Girl #1'Team' variant by Rafael Grampá.

Other Wonder Girl #1 covers include a variant by Bilquis Evely & Mat Lopes and a 1:25 variant cover by J. Scott Campbell & Sabine Rich.

Wonder Girl #2 (opens in new tab) (June 15) includes a main cover by Jones & Bellaire with a card stock variant cover by Will Murai. 

Wonder Girl #3 (July 20) includes a main cover by Jones and Bellaire with a card stock variant cover by Matteo Scalera.

"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.

I'm not just the Newsarama founder and editor-in-chief, I'm also a reader. And that reference is just a little bit older than the beginning of my Newsarama journey. I founded what would become the comic book news site in 1996, and except for a brief sojourn at Marvel Comics as its marketing and communications manager in 2003, I've been writing about new comic book titles, creative changes, and occasionally offering my perspective on important industry events and developments for the 25 years since. Despite many changes to Newsarama, my passion for the medium of comic books and the characters makes the last quarter-century (it's crazy to see that in writing) time spent doing what I love most.
