This week’s episode of The Wednesday Club was wonderful—make that Wonder-full. That’s right, that terrible pun means hosts Amy Dallen, Taliesin Jaffe, and Matt Key talked Wonder Woman this week in a lead-up to the film’s release.


Wonder Woman by George Pérez Omnibus Vol. 1

Writer and artist George Pérez took the reins of Wonder Woman in the 1980s in what many consider to be the character’s best run. “In the George Pérez version of this, it’s ancient Amazon times. They’re created to be an example to folks and inspire more devotion to the gods,” said Amy. “So they create the warrior women known as Amazons.”

Heracles is corrupted by Ares, who turns him against the Amazons, and he fights Hippolyta for her girdle as described in Greek mythology’s tasks of Heracles. And that’s just the beginning of the story. Pérez’s run would go on to last five years; get started with this first omnibus collection.
