“It feels like a god alone, unsure of her steps, trying to find her way in a new world, which feels like an old myth in some way.” –Daniel Warren Johnson
Determined to give the remnants of humanity refuge on the shores of Themyscira, in the sophomore issue of DC’s dynamic new Black Label release, Wonder Woman’s hopes are dashed when she finds the island paradise a shadow of its former self, with her Amazon sisters long gone and something unimaginable in their place.
In a conversation with DC Publisher and CCO Jim Lee, Wonder Woman: Dead Earth writer and artist Daniel Warren Johnson said “I wanted to make [Wonder Woman] look a little different, but still keep that core element of who she is. See if I could make something where I was really pushing her to her limits. I was trying to come up with a world to make Diana think, ‘Is what I believe truly worth it, when everybody else feels so differently?’ That’s where the impetus of the story came from.”
