You won't have to wait until June to get the origin story of the Amazons thanks to Kevin Grevioux and DC Comics. Grevioux, best known as the creator of Underworld, is writing, and Ryan Benjamin is handling art. The Odyssey of The Amazons follows a group of Amazons as they travel around the world looking for others like them.

Grevioux talked to The Hollywood Reporter about the diverse cast of The Amazons.

In this one, we have, essentially, the origins of the Amazons. Where they came from, why there are so many across the planet? One of the legends of the Amazons is that they began in the Middle East, others have them near Greece, there was even a kind of Amazon in Africa amongst the Senegalese peoples. There were even the Valkyries in Norse mythology.

He also took the time to plug himself, in a question about his return to comics.

Look, film is a great medium. After having created Underworld and written the original screenplay for I, Frankenstein, I love film. But it's very collaborative, and you can't be married to any ideas.

The Odyssey of The Amazons, featuring Aztec Amazons, Persian Amazons, German Amazons, Chinese Amazons, and Slavic Amazons will release January 18. Preview pages are in the gallery below.
