Handsome all-ages hardcover. Recommended. By Shea Fontana. Art by Karen Berger, Janice Chiang, Ramona Fradon et al. Female Super Heroes and Super-Villains in the DC universe. This book focuses on the fierce, strong, and independent heroes, along with the real-life women creators integral to their development. Wonder Woman, Lois Lane, Batgirl, Bumblebee, Hawkgirl, Black Canary, Amanda Waller, and many more, right down to the secondary but still important girls of the DC world. Each gets a full page, full color new illustration and an in-depth look at her career. I like the variety of art, from serious painting to the cartoonish, suited to each lady.
