- Full Description
From the masterful minds of Grant Morrison (Final Crisis, The Multiversity) and Yanick Paquette (Swamp Thing, Batman, Inc.) comes the most provocative origin of Wonder Woman you’ve ever seen--a wholly unique retelling that still honors her origins. In a superlative style that reminds us of Terry Dodson and Adam Hughes. Really, this is beautifully drawn and innovatively laid out.
For millennia, the Amazons of Paradise Island have maintained a thriving society away from the blight of man. One resident, however, is not satisfied with this secluded life--Diana, Princess of the Amazons, knows there is more in this world and wants to explore, only to be frustrated by her protective mother, Hippolyta.
Diana finds her escape when Air Force pilot Steve Trevor, the first man she has ever seen, crashes onto their shores. With his life hanging in the balance, Diana ventures into the long forbidden world of men. The Amazons chase after her and bring her back to Paradise Island in chains to face trial for breaking their oldest law--separation from the world that wronged them.
Thought-provoking yet reverent, thoroughly modern but still timeless, the power and courage of Paradise Island’s greatest champion--Wonder Woman--is introduced in this new addition to DC Comics’ New York Times best-selling Earth One original graphic novel series. Very impressive, I have to say. I’m eager to read this and further savor the outstanding artwork.
Includes a special end section with rough drawings for various cover ideas, character and costume studies, an all-angles look at the art for the related Art of War statue by Yanick Paquette, and more pages of bonus material, mostly in full color.
