New Reader Guide: Wonder Woman

Welcome to the Austin Books & Comics New Reader Guide! We’re here to introduce some of our favorite books that you may not already know about, and maybe even help you find your next favorite comic series!

Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman aka Diana Prince: Amazonian warrior princess, feminist icon, 1/3 of DC’s Trinity, and the world’s most famous female superhero, Wonder Woman has endured for over 70 years as a legendary inspiration. Her combination of strength, grace, and compassion is what has lead her to be such a high-profile figure in the DC canon.

In this guide you’ll find the recent Wonder Woman ongoing series, as well as some of the more acclaimed miniseries, story arcs, and other series.

All titles are available at the store, and if not we will be happy to special order them for you!

Artist: Cliff Chiang
Number of Volumes: 9

Number of volumes: 4

Concluded Series (Pre-New 52)

Wonder Woman (1987)

Wonder Woman (1987)

Following the conclusion of Crisis on Infinite Earths in 1986, DC relaunched Wonder Woman. Written (primarily) and drawn by the already-legendary George Perez, this series took the heroine to basics, pitting her against God of War Ares in “Man’s World,” and facing ever-difficult challenges both on the battlefield and off. Regarded as one of the most character-defining runs of all time.

Writer: George Perez, Greg Potter, Len Wein
Artist: George Perez

Wonder Woman (2001)

Wonder Woman (2001)

The 2001 run by Greg Rucka pitted the Amazon warrior princess against her Justice League compatriot, Batman! Then, the publication of her book opens up the floodgates of villains looking to not only defeat Wonder Woman, but destroy her home of Themyscira. Another of the most high-regarded runs, this series was recently collected in the “Wonder Woman by Greg Rucka” collection.

Writer: Greg Rucka
Artists: Shane Davis, JG Jones, Sean Phillips, James Raiz, Ray Snyder
Number of volumes: 1

Wonder Woman (2006)

Wonder Woman (2006)

This series picks up after 2006’s Infinite Crisis as part of the “One Year Later” relaunch. Donna Troy now holds the title of Wonder Woman, with Diana missing. Not all is as it seems, when a terrorist takes several of Diana’s friends hostage, demanding she reveal herself. This series featured myth and legend mixed with modern spy thrills as Diana often works with the Department of Metahuman Affairs to fight evil.

Writers: Allan Heinberg, Jodi Picoult, Gail Simone
Artists: Terry Dodson, Drew Johnson
Number of volumes: 8

Wonder Woman (2010)

Artist: Don Kramer
Number of volumes: 2

Part of DC’s Earth One line of original graphic novels, Wonder Woman: Earth One is a modern retelling of Wonder Woman’s origin as she meets marooned pilot Steve Trevor and ventures into the unknown world of man, only to be brought back in chains and tried by the Amazons for violating the separation from the world that wronged them.

Writer: Grant Morrison
Artist: Yanick Paquette
