Grant Morrison’s much rumored Wonder Woman project, Earth One: Wonder Woman, has finally been revealed to retailers at the Baltimore Diamond Retailers Summit. Should it prove successful, Morrison will have written definitive works for each member of DC’s Trinity.

Behold:

wonder-woman-earth-one

The cover pays homage to Wonder Woman’s original stories by Dr. William Moulton Marston, who infamously drew the Amazon in pseudo-depictions of bondage. As part of their backstory, any Amazon who was tied up by men would lose their strength. Partly a metaphor for Women’s social status in the 1940’s (and beyond), partly a kink thing, Wonder Woman in chains has been a recurring trope for the character.

Eagle eyed readers will note the special background characters, such as Donna Troy, Artemis, Mala (possibly), Cassy Sandsmark, Phillippus, Queen Hyppolyta, and an awe inspiring Invisible Plane.

The synopsis reads as follows:

From the masterful minds of Grant Morrison (FINAL CRISIS, THE MULTIVERSITY) and Yanick Paquette (SWAMP THING, BATMAN, INC.) comes the most provocative origin of Wonder Woman you’ve ever seen — a wholly unique retelling that still honors her origins.For millennia, the Amazons of Paradise Island have created a thriving society away from the blight of man. One resident, however, is not satisfied with this secluded life — Diana, Princess of the Amazons, knows there is more in this world and wants to explore, only to be frustrated by her protective mother, Hippolyta. Diana finds her escape when Air Force pilot Steve Trevor, the first man she has ever seen, crashes onto their shores. With his life hanging in the balance, Diana ventures into the long forbidden world of men. The Amazons chase after her and bring her back to Paradise Island in chains to face trial for breaking their oldest law…staying separated from the world that wronged them.

Thought provoking yet reverent, thoroughly modern but still timeless, the power and courage of Paradise Island’s greatest champion — Wonder Woman — is introduced in this new addition to DC’s New York Times best selling Earth One original graphic novel series.

Earth One: Wonder Woman is scheduled for release in January 2016.
