The Legend of Wonder Woman: Book 2 was to have been a follow-up to the 2016 Eisner Award-nominated series The Legend of Wonder Woman by Renae De Liz. The follow-up series was announced in tweets by De Liz and DC Comics in May and June of 2016.[1][2]

Despite strong sales,[3] De Liz announced on December 15, 2016 that the book had been cancelled[4] just two days after the collected release of The Legend of Wonder Woman (notably subtitled, "Volume 1: Origins").

De Liz took to Twitter to share her disappointment as well as sketches from "Book 2" which had already been in production. The series would have featured Cheetah, Giganta, Blue Snowman, Gateway City, and more of Etta Candy.

DC Comics later commented publicly about the cancellation, stating that they found working with the creative team to be "a challenging relationship". They specifically cited inker Ray Dillon as a point of contention regarding his comments about the company on social media, as well as his opinion of Wonder Woman: Earth One: Volume One published in the same year.[5][6][7]
