“Massive” Wonder Woman-centric Trial of the Amazons crossover coming to DC in 2022

While the details are sparse for the moment, DC Fandome 2021 brought news about a 2022 crossover event Trial of the Amazons focusing on … you guessed it … DC’s rapidly expanding family of Wonder Woman titles.

Trial of the Amazons is described by DC as a “massive” crossover event that takes place in the comic book series Wonder Woman, Nubia & the Amazons, and presumably Wonder Girl in 2022, as it includes writers Becky Cloonan and Michael Conrad (Wonder Woman (opens in new tab)), Vita Ayala and Stephanie Williams (Nubia and the Amazons (opens in new tab)), Joëlle Jones (Wonder Girl (opens in new tab)), and Jordie Bellaire (Wonder Woman: The Adventures Of Young Diana (opens in new tab)).

Promising to “redefine the future of DC’s Amazons,” with Wonder Woman “fighting for justice on a cosmic scale,” which in turn leaves Queen Hippolyta to “depart for Man’s World,” Nubia is left to lead Themyscira as new tribes of Amazons appear and she and Yara Flor find themselves “in the heart of a power struggle.”

Wonder Woman “fighting for justice on a cosmic scale” likely indicates she’ll be busy in events in Brian Michael Bendis’ monthly Justice League comic book title and/or his January-launching Justice League vs. The Legion of Super-Heroes six-issue limited series and/or a Darkseid-centric new Crisis event DC has been setting up for most of 2021. 

While DC was light on details, they were heavy on images, with this gallery of new character sketches of all the key players – including Artemis – and a promo image by artist Jen Bartel, who drew Future State: Immortal Wonder Woman (opens in new tab)
