A new era of Wonder Woman begins as best-selling, Hugo Award-winning and Ms Marvel writer G. Willow Wilson makes her return to DC!

A NEW BATTLE BEGINS!

War. For humankind, it is the oldest and deadliest enemy there is. And for Diana of Themyscira, the same is true…almost.

Because to the Amazon Princess, war is not just an impersonal force of destruction. War is a god—a god named Ares.

And Ares is back.

Resurrected after years of oblivion, this young god has emerged once more to shake the world to its very foundations. But Ares is still impressionable, still able to be molded into something less cruel and more just…if he has the right mentor.

He has chosen Wonder Woman. And now Wonder Woman must make a choice of her own.

Can Diana reform Ares’s wicked ways? Or will she and everyone she cares about learn the hard way that there’s no such thing as a just war?

It all begins in Wonder Woman Vol. 1: The Just War! Acclaimed writer G. Willow Wilson (Ms. Marvel) and artist Cary Nord (Conan) launch a whole new era for comics’ greatest superheroine with guest art from Xermanico (Injustice), Jesus Merino (Superman), and Emanuela Lupacchino (Starfire)!

Collects Wonder Woman #58-65.
