Description

Loosely chronological, Wonder Woman explores idiosyncratic creator William Moulton Marston's interest in ideas of a new woman for the twentieth century; costume and character story changes over the decades; the influence on all other female comic book characters since her inception; and how Wonder Woman is still powerful and relevant in today's comic book renaissance.

Take a look inside Wonder Woman’s beginning and follow the path she took with original creator Marston, as her crime-fighting journey unfolded, until today. As a the staple of early American female superheroes, Wonder Woman helped shape generations of female characters, both superhero and otherwise. Follow along as Wonder Woman’s exciting history reveals itself to you in, Wonder Woman: Amazon, Hero, Icon.

The book contains more than 250 Wonder Woman illustrations, including covers, interior comic art, and sketch treatments, beginning with her inception in the early 1940s to present-day treatments of the character. Celebrated artists include Alex Ross, Jim Lee, George Perez, and Brian Bolland, to name only a few. The book also features rare covers and pin-up posters created for past special-edition Wonder Woman comic books. Wonder Woman is certain to appeal to fanboys and fangirls, collectors, and newcomers to the comic book genre alike.
