It also features a new romance for Wonder Woman, as Diana Prince is given a new girlfriend in this series. Issue #1, numbering 30 pages and geared towards readers ages 12 and up, first released on November 2. Its follow-up, with almost identical parameters, was released on December 7.

It introduces readers to Zala-El, sister to Superman and princess of the House of El. She is at Themyscira, where Lois Lane must travel to deliver the somber news that Zala-El\u2019s father was murdered.

Wonder Woman consoles her girlfriend in her grief with a kiss, a scene that takes up much of the page before Zala- El tearfully flies away even as Wonder Woman continues to watch her closely. In the past, TODAY notes, the duo had fought on the battlefield, and will likely be arming themselves again, this time in preparation for a battle between Zala-El\u2019s family and the Kingdom of Storms. A mark of new trends from old trends Gal Gadot shared that though the movies did not explore same-sex relationships for Diana, the Amazonian warrior loves people for who they are \/ ph: Clay Enos \/ \u00a9 Warner Bros. \/ Courtesy Everett Collection CBR argues that Wonder Woman was the first bisexual superhero readers were introduced to since the advent of comics and the titans keeping the universe safe. Gal Gadot, the latest actress to wield the Lasso of Truth, said that while the films never explored Diana liking both men and women, \u201cwhen you talk theoretically about all the women on Themyscira and how many years she was there,\u201d it makes sense when Greg Rucka, the latest Wonder Woman comic author, asserted that the character is bisexual. Comic book writers explain that Wonder Woman would comfortably have a girlfriend on her home of Themyscira \/ Flickr \u201cShe\u2019s a woman who loves people for who they are,\u201d Gadot added. \u201cShe can be bisexual. She loves people for their hearts.\u201d Her statement is a response to Rucka\u2019s own monumental confirmation of Diana\u2019s bisexuality. \u201cIt\u2019s supposed to be paradise,\u201d Rucka said of Diana\u2019s mythical island home of Themyscira. \u201cYou\u2019re supposed to be able to live happily. You\u2019re supposed to be able -- in a context where one can live happily, and part of what an individual needs for that happiness is to have a partner -- to have a fulfilling, romantic and sexual relationship. And the only options are women...But an Amazon doesn\u2019t look at another Amazon and say, 'You\u2019re gay.' They don\u2019t. The concept doesn\u2019t exist.\u201d Though Wonder Woman is often associated with dating Steve Trevor, even when she doesn\u2019t have a girlfriend, she is also associated with acceptance, as an \u201880s comic highlights that her publicist accepted his brother being gay even when the rest of the family did not. This is all part of a larger trend leaning towards more LGBT inclusion in comics. Indeed, Wonder Woman's girlfriend is not the only member of the House of El to be with the same gender; Superman's own son, Jonathan Kent, came out as bisexual in Superman: Son of Kal-El #5, released on November 9.
