When alien masterminds menace the mighty young superheroines known as Supergirl and Mary Marvel, she's there to lead them to victory!
When her enemies strike with the speed of the Cheetah, the sorcery of Circe, and the hypno-horror of Doctor Psycho, she's there to bring them to justice!
She is Diana—Princess of Themiscyra, founder of the Justice League, ambassador for peace, and warrior for women everywhere. She is Wonder Woman—and in SENSATION COMICS, she's taking a turn in the spotlight with comics' biggest talents!
From DC Comics superstars Gail Simone (BATGIRL, SECRET SIX) and Ethan Van Sciver (GREEN LANTERN, FLASH: REBIRTH) to comics legend Gilbert Hernandez (Love and Rockets) and beyond, SENSATION COMICS FEATURING WONDER WOMAN VOL. 1 (collects issues #1-5) features the industry's best writers and artists putting their own unique spin on comics' greatest superheroine in stories that longtime fans and newcomers alike will love!
This anthology of Wonder Woman stories is worthy of its sensational title. Each story features a different writer and artist, and though some of the plots struggle to rise above supervillain-of-the-week fisticuffs, there's not a bum artist in the mix. From Ethan Van Sciver's (Green Lantern, The Flash: Rebirth) superheroics to the cartoonish fantasy of Hernandez (Love and Rockets), the all-star creative team approaches Wonder Woman from nearly every angle. The standout story is "Brace Yourself," by Jason Bischoff and David A. Williams, a tale of Princess Diana's youth and how she earned the honor of being Paradise Island's ambassador and the title of Wonder Woman. The best of the superhero fisticuffs is "Ghosts and Gods," by Neil Kleid (Jewish in America) and Dean Haspiel (The Fox), guest-starring Deadman, who never overshadows Wonder Woman. Instead, the presence of a helpful, undead ghost illuminates ideas about faith, gods, and what it means to live in a world where such things are real. It can be difficult to find a modern, appropriately epic Wonder Woman comic book , but this volume has half a dozen.
