ADAM HUGHES ON WONDER WOMAN #600

Wonder Woman is the greatest comic-book superheroine of all time, and I can prove it with math. If you need proof of Wonder Woman's stature as the greatest comic-book superheroine of all-time, then, PLEASE, go add up all the issues of any other female character and see if you come close to SIX HUNDRED. No other female character has remained in print, consistently, since the Second World War. Think about that. Are there ANY? From ANY company? Nope. Sometimes, simple statistics speak volumes: Wonder Woman has been around, month-in-month-out, for almost 70 years. How many heroines (or heroes!) can boast such a feat? How many PUBLICATIONS have been in print since WWII? She has inspired, intrigued, and entertained - NON-STOP - through 5 American wars, 13 U.S. presidential administrations, and she's even outlasted regimes like the Soviet Union. Wonder Woman endures because she's the best of the best, the baddest of the bad, the bluest of the blue.
