Description

(W) Robert Greenberger Wonder Woman offers a comprehensive look at the first and most important female super hero of DC Comics, from the Golden Age to the present day. During her existence, she has served in the army, renounced her powers at the height of the feminist movement, and helped launch Gloria Steinem's Ms. magazine. She has been - and continues to be - a trailblazing role model to girls and women and an integral part of the cultural zeitgeist. 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. The book contains more than 250 Wonder Woman illustrations from such celebrated artists as Alex Ross, Jim Lee, George Perez, and Brian Bolland, including covers, interior comic art, and sketch treatments, beginning with her inception in the early 1940s to present-day treatments of the character.
