Just in time for his big-screen debut in tomorrow's Wonder Woman, Diana's longtime beau Steve Trevor is getting a one-shot comic book special next week...and DC has provided ComicBook.com with an exclusive preview of the issue.
Chris Pine will be taking on the role of Steve Trevor in this year's Wonder Woman solo film, and now the character will be getting a spotlight in the comics as well. The big difference will be that he won't have Wonder Woman to rely on this time.
DC has just announced a new one-shot called Wonder Woman: Steve Trevor, where writer Tim Seeley (Nightwing) and artist Christian Duce (Detective Comics) will depict the character on his own against someone much more powerful than him. It will also examine the roots of Steve and Diana's longtime friendship.
“Steve and Diana’s longtime friendship, despite their coming from separate worlds, is inspiring. But in this story, we’ll get a chance to see Steve come face to face with a villain from Wonder Woman’s past, who he’ll have to overcome without her help, ” said Seeley when the one-shot was announced. “I’m excited to dive back into the life of Steve Trevor, and give him a new and crazy adventure of his own.”
You can view the preview pages in the attached image gallery, and the official solicitation text can be found below.
