Review: Wonder Woman 75th Anniversary Special #1

ww75as_cv1_dsWhen it comes to Wonder Woman, it never surprises me, that although her stature in the comics world is as immense as it is, that she has never had a solo movie until next year. This character who, has inspired women of all ages for decades, and has even been on Ms. Magazine, never truly has gotten her due. Her life in the comics world, is as just as big as her contemporaries, Batman and Superman. Her backstory is also just as interesting, if not more, as she ascends from royalty, revealing a long extenuating misogyny within the fandom.

Surprisingly, most people still don’t know that she was created by a doctor, who researched bondage and other depravities, but also sought to understand the human condition. Wonder Woman, is the perfect example of the human experience, as she does take the hero’s journey, becoming a stronger character by leaving her home. Since her inception, her character has grown with society, as she initially followed tropes but eventually came to challenge each one. She even challenges the trope of relationships, where she takes the more dominant roles in her relationships with Batman and Superman.

In the Wonder Woman 75th Anniversary Special, several writers and artists collaborate to create stories in which makes us all look at Diana different. “Big Things One Day Come” has Diana and a new superhero by the name of Star Blossom take on a kryptonite powered gorilla, which is both funny and action packed. “Gives Us Strength” follows Diana as she fights some Nazis and actually helps liberate France during World War II. The last piece that stands out is the interview Lois Lane does with Wonder Woman, which answers some questions, but brings up even more.

Altogether, this special is more a love letter to this character which has inspired millions and continues to every day. The writers all bring their love to the story. The artist more so as they see her in each, a different light. Overall, a fun tribute to an icon.

Wonder Woman #8 Gets a Pre-Cheetah Barbara Ann Minerva Interlude

wonder-woman-8Fans of Greg Rucka, Nicola Scott and Liam Sharp’s epic Wonder Woman storylines can anticipate an added bonus to the “Year One” storyline by Rucka and Scott, in the form of a one- shot interlude focusing on Barbara Ann Minerva, aka The Cheetah, written by Rucka with art and cover by Bilquis Evely.

The issue spotlights Cheetah’s past, as a young Barbara Ann Minerva is sent on a quest to find answers to the Amazons’ most ancient secrets!

In the release, Rucka said the issue arose organically spinning out of the current story and the decision to focus on Barbara Ann Minerva would add to the overall tale.

Wonder Woman #8 arrives October 12th, 2016.
