9-Page Guide to Brian Bendis’ Wonder Comics – Wonder Twins, Young Justice, Naomi and Dial H For Hero



I was a Marvel kid (duh) but I was a DC teenager. I was in high school when John Byrne came to SUPERMAN and Frank Miller was on BATMAN and George Perez was on WONDER WOMAN.
Those three creators alone brought me to DC at a time when the company was making some of the most innovative and celebrated comics ever. They were speaking to me like nothing else in the world was. I was a teenager discovering myself through this art form and these worlds and characters. These comics told me I might have something like a voice and a place in the world. These comics were as big a part of me becoming who l am as anything else that was going on in the “real world,”

We want to celebrate that absolutely wondrous time of life when you are just about to become the person you are destined to be, when you just start to discover your true potential, and even that magical moment when you first start to figure out the world before the world figures out you. We want to make comics that celebrate wonder. The wonder of life. love and comics.

Taking a page from Neil Gaiman’s Sandman Universe line. Wonder Comics is a pop-up imprint that will he a boutique collection of exceptionally well-crafted comics that reflect our deep love and affection for these characters and this amazing medium.

We’ll have many surprises for you in the coming a months. Wonder Comics is all set to give you gorgeous. honest. innovative and. yes, wonderful comic book experiences.
