The book description on the DC Comics’ website speaks greatly about the roles these women have played in bettering the world. They drew parallels with their own character Wonder Woman and implied that not all heroes wore starry outfits and capes.

“Wonder Woman has been an inspiration for decades, and while not everyone would choose her star-spangled outfit for themselves, her compassion and fairness are worthy of emulation. We’ll be presenting tales of the real-world heroes who take up Diana’s mantle and work in the fields of science, social justice activism, diplomacy, and more!”

When will Serena Williams’ graphic novel be available?

The book is available on Amazon on a pre-order basis. It is priced at $16.99 and will be released on the 28th of September 2021. Getting these graphic novels will be a tough task because of the popularity of the various personalities it involves.
