It’s comic book time again! I’m an unapologetic fan-girl of this character. This anthology features 18 of the best and most influential stories from 75 years of Wonder Woman and some of the most illustrious creatives in the comics industry. A journey through the most important epochs of the biggest female cartoon icon.

The beautiful hardcover edition is also full to the brim with extensive background information.

Wonder Woman is a founding member of the Justice League and an ambassador of the Amazon people.  The character first appeared in  1941 published by DC Comics almost continuously except for a brief break in 1986. In her homeland, the island nation of Themyscira her official title is Princess Diana of Themyscira, Daughter of Hippolytha ter of Hippolyta. When she acts in the society outside of her homeland, she adopts the name Diana Prince. 

Wonder Woman was created by the American psychologist and writer  William Marston, his wife Elizabeth and their life partner Olive Byrne. The two women are credited as being his inspiration for the character’s appearance. The character drew a great deal of inspiration from early feminists, especially from birth control pioneer Margaret Sanger.

This anthology makes a great christmas present and can be wonderfully accompanied by the 2017 movie „Wonder Woman“ by Patty Jenkins.

Wonder Woman, however, is not simply a movie or a comic book about a very strong woman. Wonder Woman is a role model for every woman. You will see tons of girls dressed up as Wonder Woman in movie theaters, at Comic Con or Halloween and just seeing how ecstatic they were was wonderful to watch.
