Diana: Princess of the Amazons Day Thread

Diana: Princess of the Amazons is a graphic novel that was released on January 7, 2020. It was written by Shannon and Dean Hale ( Unbeatable Squirrel Girl ) and drawn by artist Victoria Ying.

Here is a short description of the book – “Cut off from the rest of the world, Diana had an idyllic childhood on Themyscira. But now 11-years-old, she’s beginning to feel more and  more isolated. Though she has many “aunties” and a loving mother, she is an only child. THE only child, in fact. After an escapade goes wrong, Queen Hippolyta chastises Diana for not living up to the Amazon standard. Diana just can’t seem to  measure up,  no matter what she does! Literally every other person on the island is an adult proficient in their trade and mighty in body, while she is gangly, sometimes clumsy, and not particularly proficient in  anything. She’s not  Wonder Woman yet. What Diana needs is a friend; someone her own age whom she can talk to. But when she decides to take matters into her own hands—she may just make a monster instead.”

DC Comics has been doing a great job introducing super-heroes to the younger generation of kids and teens.

This one is worth adding to your reading list to prep for Wonder Woman 1984 later in the year.
