In very unfortunate comics news, a wonderful DC Comics title has abruptly been canceled. In the newest DC Connect update from DC Comics, they have announced that Joelle Jones’ stellar Wonder Girl series will now end with Wonder Girl #7, meaning that the previously solicited Wonder Girl #8 will not be released. Instead, Flor’s adventures will continue in the upcoming Trial of the Amazons: Wonder Girl #1 and #2, which will hit later this year. This is really a shame, as Wonder Girl was one of the best books DC was releasing, and hopefully, this isn’t the end of Yara’s solo series shine. You can read the DC Connect announcement below.
DC Connect’s announcement reads “The current run of Wonder Girl concludes with Wonder Girl #7, on sale January 25. Yara Flor’s adventures continue in Trial of the Amazons: Wonder Girl #1 and #2, on sale March 22 and April 19, respectively. Wonder Girl #8, previously solicited in DC Connect #18, has been cancelled. Stay tuned for more news on the future of Wonder Girl.”

No reasoning was given, but regardless of what that reason was, it’s disappointing. Yara Flor is a star and is more than deserving of a solo title, especially one that was this good. You can read the official descriptions for Wonder Girl #7, Trial of the Amazons: Wonder Girl #1 and #2, and the now cancelled Wonder Girl #8 below.
