The second volume of Grant Morrison and Yanick Paquette's Wonder Woman: Earth One is now set for release August 21, 2018 (according to a listing in the industry catalog Edelweiss). The sequel was talked about during the promotion of the original volume several years ago, with DC formally announcing it at Comic-Con International: San Diego this year.
The Wonder Woman: Earth One sequel has been described by Morrison as "the story's Empire Strikes Back," framing it now as a trilogy. Paula Von Gunter has been reimagined as a "Nazi superwoman" who leads an invasion of Paradise Island
"We're kind of showing you cannot f*** with this island of women," Morrison said. "For 3000 years, they've been doing it better than you."
DC promises it will be "Amazons vs. Nazi army," that that Morrison assures readers that it will have "the ultimate Amazon army."
