She’s WONDER WOMAN!
And she’s the greatest superhero this world has ever seen.
A lifelong fan lays out WW’s legend for those who want to know her better. Brush up on the important people, equipment, and lessons that Princess Diana has shown us through the years. Lively chapters show how she came to be, her powers, her friends… and who the rogues are who make up her enemies list.
Sometimes her biggest adversaries have been the members of her creative staff, who too often had disrespect for their leading lady, were clueless about who she is, or were creatively restricted by corporate marketing decisions.
Nevertheless, she persists.
This volume even attempts to unravel the history of Wonder Woman’s sister, Donna Troy. (Have your aspirin ready.)
Sometimes wacky, sometimes serious – and ALWAYS opinionated– this book reveals how Wonder Woman breaks out of patriarchy’s restrictive mold to demonstrate that everyone can stand strong, kind, empowered, and entirely their truthful selves in today’s world.
All they need is a hero to show them the way: WONDER WOMAN!
When you think of strong women and strange worlds, think Carol A. Strickland.
Although born in a small town in Illinois noted for its Nineteenth Century demonic possession cases, Strick claims that all those voices inside her head are a result of having stories to tell and books to write. Even so, her strange devotion to and study of Wonder Woman would seem to indicate an abby-normal brain.
A one-time comics letterhack and outspoken member of various comics message boards, Strick has found herself the basis for two comic book villains (at times her opinions have not been taken well by the books' creators) (both villains were soundly thrashed) (and both, for some perverse reason, were male) and had one superhero wear her costume design. (Light Lass!)
Strick has also become an award-winning painter. Along with her writing, she exercises this skill in her secondary hours (both of them) as she waits for the lottery to free her 9-to-5 time to more fulfilling pursuits.
