The three-part DC Black Label series begins with Book One on November 30th and DC has released new preview art by Wonder Woman fan-favorite Phil Jimenez.

Author Kelly Sue DeConnick’s story promises to tell the “whole” story of the Amazons, tracing their ancient history, and expanding their mythology and the world of Wonder Woman.
“This book is talking about these characters between Phil and me and what makes them resonate today,” DeConnick says. “We wanted to do a Homeric epic with a woman at the center. We took all the language and symbolism used in stories about men as protagonists and put women at the center. Wonder Woman Historia: The Amazons of One Kind of like a history book for a young Amazon where she learns the history of her people from the point of view of her people.”
Here’s a look at Jimenez’s next-level art for Wonder Woman Historia: Amazon #1:
According to DC, thousands of years ago Queen Hera and the god of the Olympian gods became dissatisfied with their male followers, so they put into practice a secret plan.
That action led to a society unique to Earth “capable of wonderful and terrifying things,” but it didn’t remain a mystery for long.
When a woman named Hippolyta met the new Amazon in despair, a series of events occurred that led to an all-out war in the heavens and the creation of “the greatest protector of the earth!”
Wonder Woman Historia: Amazons #1 will also include design pages with notes from Jimenez that delve deeper into the various Amazon tribes in the story, including The Tribe of Artemis, The Tribe of Hestia, and more, as Seen below.
“What excited me most about this project was its take on the legend of Kelly Sue,” Jimenez said. “This book also allowed me to rethink the design of Amazon. I wanted to represent different types of women around the world. It was important that readers see themselves as physically represented among these women.”
Wonder Woman Historia: Amazons #1 features a main cover by Jiménez, a variant cover by Olivier Koipel, as well as a “Library faux leather design” proportioned variant with gold foil and a textured treatment by DC Associate Art Director Daren Robinson . participating retailer.
