Last week, we got the news that there's a young adult Wonder Woman book series on the way. Okay, technically that was announced in March, but now we have a cover.
Can't say I entirely approve of the plot - "What Diana doesn't know is that Alia is a Warbringer, a direct descendant of Helen of Troy, and she is fated to bring about bloodshed and misery" - but since I'm not going to be reading it, I'm not really sure I can complain.

Except by Sunday, DC had denied everything. Sighs of relief all round.
And that was the news. After the jump, let's talk about last week's Wonder Woman (Rebirth), which, erm, continues Diana's latest origin story.
