the "Diana Prince: Wonder Woman" Volume 2.
Well, all you really need to know is that the Widowmaker story is in it, possibly the most perfectly Bronze Age story ever made (I can't say "written"; that would be an offense to writing).
But, even without the famous Widowmaker story, here are ten good reasons you simply must own this volume.
1. Wonder Woman beating the tar out a drag queen.
"Madame Fatal?! I'm sorry, Oracle didn't tell me you'd be here...!"
2. Bronze Age fashion.
Whoa. Someone obviously couldn't afford to hire Edna Mode.
3. Superman setting a floor on fire by dancing.
What a dork; stupid shufflefoot.
4. Wonder Woman bitch-slapping an injured Lois Lane while Superman looks on, laughing.
Okay; maybe he really is a dick.
5. Machine-gun Wonder Woman
Let's see Mattel come out with a Barbie version of that.
6. Wonder Woman takes muff-diving lessons.
"This is how we roll at the Renaissance Fair, 'princess'...!"
7. Lesbian slave-rings.
Not enough of those in comics nowadays, I say.
8. Superman in hippie drag.
And now, I can't un-see that.
9. Wonder Woman torturing prisoners.
"On Paradise Island, we don't waste time with water-boarding!"
And, of course...
10. the on-going mutual hatred of Diana and I Ching.
My Goodness! That was certainly interesting.
I'm not sure if Superman is actually so much laughing as Diana decks Lois, as he is enjoying the view, as Lois goes reeling back, with legs splayed and skirt flying.
Or maybe he really IS a dick.
For more not unseeing Superman in hippie garb, be sure to visit Marvel Two-in-One #55-58!
Can't really blame Di for wanting to torture the guy. I mean, who doesn't hate Quakers, with their smug, self-satisfied oatmeal sneering at you in every supermarket?
I assume the Earthquakers are some sort of Green branch of the Society of Friends?
Ah yes, Diana and Ching; the Jon and Kate of the DC Universe.
And Rich, as someone who attends Centre Meeting every Sunday, I'll try not to be too offended.
Wow, if Diana would learn to loosen up a little bit, that 'lesson' wouldn't look so painful
Wonder Woman certainly has had some rough patches in her publishing history. It's pretty amazing that she's never been removed from her spot in "The Big Three..."
There's no replacement for a Golden Age pedigree, Roel!
Jon and Kate? Who they (and yes, I'll kick myself).
The anel #2 looks like a typical Scott Kollins design to me. Except that Sekowski actually bothered to indicate shadows. (Friggin' Kollins...! Sorry; I guess he pushes my buttons. And not in the good way.)
Wow how do I get your job? Serioulsy, why aren't you paid for this?
