A #1 NEW YORK TIMES Bestseller! 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. For millennia, the Amazons
of Paradise Island have created 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--staying
separated from the world that wronged them.

"Both novices and the initiated will find great fun in thisflawlessly streamlined remolding, and, in his inimitable style, Morrison offers a fiercer, stranger, moreepic, more textured, and, incidentally, more diverse interpretation. Visualized in Paquette's gleaming,dynamic, lush, and luscious imagery, this is the most complex, powerful, and confidently sexy WonderWoman on record."
"With his signature panache and irresistible layers of metaphor, Morrison has treated [Wonder Woman] graciously. A provocative and highly contrasted view that we have not seen before."
"Morrison, Paquette, and Fairbairn have delivered a fascinating update of the character, bringing a true sense of wonder to her story."
--A.V. CLUB/THE ONION
