Wonder Woman (Abbeville)

 WOWC   (Abbeville, 1995)

™ and ©1995 DC Comics

One of the smallest, coolest cover-gallery collections around, Wonder Woman is a Big Little Book-sized collection of most of the major WW covers from Sensation Comics, All-Star Comics and the amazing Amazon’s own magazine (both the original and the revived late-80s version). The single-volume collection from Abbeville Press (which also did similar collections of Action Comics and Detective Comics covers) is a slick piece of nostalgia, and a great tribute to the most successful and enduring female super-heroine in the history of comics. In addition to the covers, the set also includes a thoughtful introduction from real-life wonder woman Gloria Steinem, who credits her dawning awareness of feminism to Wonder Woman, both in the introduction, and in the first issue of Ms. that Steinem edited (and guess who she put on the cover of that famous magazine?). The collection features a nice range of artists, from original Wonder Woman artist H.G. Peter to later greats like Dick Giordano, George Perez, and Brian Bolland.
