ANI  |  Los Angeles [USA] 

June is now officially 'Wonder Woman' month.

The iconic female superhero will open in theatres on June 2, but DC has now declared the following day 'Wonder Woman Day,' with more than 2,000 comic book stores, bookstores and libraries participating in a celebration of the beloved character, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

The studio will partner with outlets including Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, Walmart, Costco and Amazon for exclusive in-store and promotions.

Consumer Products and Interactive will also push the event.

Comic book creators like Greg Rucka, Cliff Chiang, Marc Andreyko, Shea Fontana and Cat Staggs will also be present at the event to talk about their love for the 'Princess of Amazon'.

To mark Wonder Woman Day, DC will release two special issues to be given away free by partners - a reprint of the first issue of the current Wonder Woman series by Rucka and Liam Sharp, and DC Super Hero Girls Wonder Woman Day Special Edition, featuring an excerpt of the upcoming third book in Fontana and Yancey Labat's series of young reader graphic novels.

This celebration will conclude DC's year-long celebration of the 75th anniversary of Wonder Woman's first appearance.

On a related note, Patty Jenkins' 'Wonder Woman' is all set to hit theatres on June 2. The movie stars Gal Gadot as the titular character with Chris Pine, Robin Wright and Danny Huston in pivotal roles.
