An evolution of Wonder Woman through the decades will also accompany the feature, as well as a look ahead at the new Wonder Woman film slated to hit theaters June 2.

Exclusive Wonder Woman video content will also launch on Variety.com on Oct. 11, including a time-lapse video capturing the process of Lee drawing the new image from concept to completion. The new image will be revealed in the Oct. 11  issue of Variety as a collectible print that will be available in 2,500 print issues available for purchase on newsstands only.
