Following on from Wonder Woman v.2 #160 comes Wonder Woman v.2 #161. And then, after a fashion, comes Wonder Woman '77 #14, where Manhunter writer Marc Andreyko did a Clayface story set on Paradise Island.

When we left the scans in the previous post, Clayface had announced that he was going to take Diana's Clay and get Wonder Woman powers, in a fit of logic only matched by Absorbing Man trying to break into a museum to steal some moon rock. It worked, thanks to Comic Book Logic, and Clayface became super strong and could fly, but Diana wasn't destroyed, only left weaker and younger.

She retreated to nearby Titans Tower where she ran into Donna Troy, now her doppelganger. And so we continue...

Clay time is over )

Continuing this post series on how Wonder Woman: Rebirth is the perfect source material for Wonder Womans 2 and 3!

Here's a chapter from the Godwatch arc, about two more possible members of Diana's modern-day ka-tet. Plus, some Real Talk about zoo safety regulations. Check it!

So, in unlikely case there is somebody who doesn't know about Artemis of Bana-Mighdall, she is something like Wonder Woman's Azrael, although I prefer to think of her as her Vegeta. An Amazon from a lost tribe of eeeeevil Amazons who took over Wonder Woman's mantle during the nineties and while she was basically there to be the EXTREEEEEME WW to contrast with all-loving Diana, she nevertheless was embraced by many fans, enough to remain a consistent part of the franchise, despite so many characters who got ditched and forgotten, even starring in the recent Red Hood and the Outlaws book.

*In 2017, that would be a relatively big deal. But in 2000, when Wonder Woman Vol.2 #160 was released, it was just a two part story in among a series of short one and two part stories by artists and writers whose name I don't really recognise, though art in this story is handled by Scott Kolins.
This two parter is collected in the Batman: False Faces trade that has BKV's early work at DC writing Batman, Batvillains, and Wonder Woman. It's nothing amazing, but it does give a nice Wonder Woman story with an angle that seems obvious in hindsight.

I haven't read a lot of Wonder Woman, apart from some stuff around Infinite Crisis (over a decade ago. Gosh.), the Power Girl guest appearance, and bits of Sensation Comics until I ended up behind.

The story starts with Cheetah holding a car above her head and threatening that "If Wonder Woman doesn't show up in the next five minutes...I will kill every last one of you".
Two cops are watching and ready to run out from behind cover to engage Cheetah when Wonder Woman descends from the sky and says "I was hoping I could end this peacefully"
Wonder Woman vs. Cheetah? )

Well, this is shaping up to be an absolutely delightful summer. Why, just last night, one of my oldest and dearest e-friends spotted me the cash for that movie no-one can shut up about these days!

Just kidding, just kidding...

As of this writing, I've got experience with a fairly wide swath of Wonder Woman stories - read the first Golden Age omnibus cover to cover, read the post-Crisis relaunch all the way up to #150 (for those playing at home, that's all of Perez, Loebs, and Byrne, plus most of Luke), saw just about all her DCAU appearances and the DTV movie at least once, and her Brave and the Bold mini-sode a lot more than just once...

But we mustn't forget that these are nothing but trivia questions for geeks and other niche-feeders, far as the general public's concerned. To them, there was but a single "classic" Wonder Woman, now passing Gadot the torch: the ineffable, inestimable Lynda Carter.

For the "World of Wonder" theme, here is LEGENDS OF THE DC UNIVERSE #5, the conclusion of "Moments" by William Messner-Loebs and Mike Deodato. It takes place early in Diana's post-Crisis career as an ambassador, and involves her losing some illusions about the outside world.

For the "World of Wonder" theme, here is LEGENDS OF THE DC UNIVERSE #4 has the first part of a Wonder Woman story called "Moments." It takes place shortly after Diana has left Themyscira to become an ambassador.

As my contribution to World of Wonder, I present one of my favorite moments from JLA/Avengers. (or is that Avengers/JLA?) issue #4.

One of the free books to be given out for Wonder Woman day and you can already see it free on comixology.


Here's four pages, wherein Diana introduces Bumblebee to Zeus, her father.

Wait... Zeus, her father?


Noooooooooo )

I checked and it's been five years since I posted this, so I'm giving it a bit of a revival.

I've also discovered there was an old series of posts about Diana called "World of Wondy", so I'll probably merge them with the current theme, for ease of access.

The new movie will hove to the New52 reveal that Diana is the actually the daughter of Zeus, a story idea so at odds with the concept of Wonder Woman it boggles the mind. I believe that Rebirth might have done away with that (though I'm not sure), but the movie was already underway so it played the cards it was dealt



Trigger warning for misogyny, violence against women and rape (though that latter is not seen, it's so heavily implied as to be worth mentioning)

First off I'd like to draw your attention to this novel on Previews: https://previewsworld.com/Catalog/JUN172273

She will become one of the world's greatest heroes: Wonder Woman. But first she is Diana, Princess of the Amazons. And her fight is just beginning. Diana longs to prove herself to her legendary warrior sisters. But when the opportunity finally comes, she throws away her chance at glory and breaks Amazon law - risking exile - to save a mere mortal. Even worse, Alia Keralis is no ordinary girl and with this single brave act, Diana may have doomed the world. Alia is a Warbringer - a direct descendant of the infamous Helen of Troy, fated to bring about an age of bloodshed and misery. Together, Diana and Alia will face an army of enemies determined to either destroy or possess the Warbringer. If they have any hope of saving both their worlds, they will have to stand side by side against the tide of war.

That sounds like an interesting take Diana's origin with this Alia in place of Steve... I will read it!


This is also an interesting take on Wonder Woman's origin (Supergirl doing a comic for June Moone's art class in DC Superhero Girls: Out of the Bottle #2).

As you will hopefully have noticed, there's a movie opening at the end of the week, and it's something of a big deal.

It's the first big screen female led superhero movie (Important addendum: following the first couple of posts below, let me amend that to "the first big screen female led superhero movie of the modern age" as I had overlooked a couple) and the first one devoted to one of the first female superheroes. I refer of course, to Wonder Woman, starring Gal Gadot.

The reviews have been universally positive, and those of you following her various creators on social media will have noticed that they all LOVED it.

Scans_Daily owes a lot to Diana of Themyscira, and this, we feel should be appropriate to reflect that, but honouring her with... well, it was originally going to be a "Week of Wonder", but nah, Diana deserves more so we're having a "World of Wonder instead

We're interested in seeing ALL the Amazon's who have contributed, so Diana is a given of course, but also Donna, Cassie, Hippolyta and Artemis, heck if you have an Io, Nubia or Phillipus scene that you want to showcase, bring it on!

Mortal associates like Steve Trevor, Cyndi Meyer and Etta Candy or scenes with her villains like the Cheetah, Dr Cyber or even these delightful scamps from Villainy Incorporated



So let's see lots of posts folks, Diana deserves it and we don't want to disappoint her, do we?
