DC Comics have shared unlettered preview art pages from their forthcoming YA graphic novel, Wonder Woman: Tempest Tossed by Laurie Halse Anderson and artist Leila del Duca, which comes out Out on June 2, 2020. As well as plot details, of course.
Anderson, an award-winning author known for tackling tough subjects with humor and sensitivity, had this to say about her approach to this iconic female superhero:
My work on Wonder Woman combines my love for the character with my respect for the issues facing teenagers today. It was a dream project to write. But when Leila del Duca was brought on board as the artist? BOOM: creative magic through and through!
Take a look at the pages below, as well as the plot.
Princess Diana of Themyscira believes that her 16th birthday will be one of new beginnings—namely, acceptance into the warrior tribe of the Amazons. But her birthday celebrations are cut short when rafts carrying refugees break through the barrier that separates her island home from the outside world. When Diana defies the Amazons to try to bring the outsiders to safety, she finds herself swept away by the stormy sea. Cut off from everything she’s ever known, Diana herself becomes a refugee in an unfamiliar land.
Now Diana must survive in the world beyond Themyscira for the first time—a world that is filled with danger and injustice unlike anything she’s ever experienced. With new battles to be fought and new friends to be made, she must redefine what it means to belong, to be an Amazon, and to make a difference.
Wonder Woman: Tempest Tossed is a story about growing into your strength, fighting for justice, and finding home.
