Diana will have to uncover the truth behind the murder, all while dealing with a dangerous task force instructed to remove all Amazonian “threats” by any means necessary.
Solicitation information for the second issue further hints that Diana will have to battle Steve Trevor in order to restore proper balance to the world.
