DC Comics is releasing a new graphic novel honoring the “Wonder Women of History,” including 17 female “real-world heroes.”
Among them are ‘leftist darlings’ Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib, and former presidential candidate Senator Elizabeth Warren.
The novel’s list of “Wonder Women of History” also includes Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, superstar Beyonce, alternative comedian Tig Notaro, and tennis prodigy Serena Williams as well alongside other social justice activists.
Although Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have appeared in several comic books before, it’s their first time getting featured in a major comic book publisher like DC.
According to Games Radar, “Beyoncé, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Serena Williams, and more will be spotlighted by DC as in the upcoming anthology “Wonder Women of History.” Taking a cue from its popular superhero Wonder Woman, DC will spotlight 17 real-world heroes in the fields of science, social justice activism, politics, sports, and entertainment.”
“Wonder Woman has been an inspiration for decades, and while not everyone would choose her star-spangled outfit for themselves, her compassion and fairness are worthy of emulation,” the official DC website notes.
The anthology consists of 17 individual stores, including tales of the mentioned real-word heroes following Diana’s (Wonder Woman’s) principles, beliefs, and work in different fields, including science, social justice activism, diplomacy, etc.
The novel has an all-female creative team, led by a well-known author Laurie Halse Anderson. Each entry into the anthology will be written and drawn by a group of female-identifying and nonbinary individuals.
DC’s newest graphic novel, the “Wonder Women of History” anthology, will hit comic book stores in early December.
