Comic-Con 2016: The Wonder Woman Costumes

But this year DC is making sure everyone is aware of Wonder Woman’s 75th anniversary. Making her first appearance in All-Star Comics #8 in October, 1941 — followed closely by Sensation Comics #1,  the Amazon Princess doesn’t get her solo film until the summer of 2017.
