Since then, Earth’s remaining heroes – including Nightwing/Dick Grayson, Jon Kent, Supergirl, Jackson Hyde and many more – have had to pick up the mantle of fallen heroes and protect the planet from a host of enemies who have decided to capitalize on the absence of the Justice League in dark crisis.

Howard said that Worlds Without Justice League: Wonder Womanwho is one of many worlds without…the DC one-shots coming out this year will dive deep into Wonder Woman’s story. “I don’t want to give you too much away – so I’ve kept it vague, but one of my favorite things about writing this story was digging into the incredible Amazon myth that has been established recently by the writers Stephanie Williams and Vita Ayala,” she wrote. “Between Wonder Woman’s amazing back-up stories that led to Trial of the Amazons to their joint work on books like Nubia and the Amazons, I’m more into their world now than I ever was. They’re both doing amazing things there, I was just so excited to be able to build on that mythos in that story.”
Worlds Without Justice League: Wonder Woman comes from Howard, Del Duca, Dan Waters and Brandon Peterson, with a cover by Del Duca and a variant cover by Al Barrionuevo and Del Duca. The issue goes on sale Sept. 13 from DC.
