When it comes to comics history, there aren't many things stranger than the stories that exist for heroes that got their starts in the 1930s and ’40s. There are obviously a lot of reasons for this—comics were a brand new medium and superheroes were a brand-new concept, things like continuity and shared universes didn't exist—you get the idea.
In a world where heroes and villains with extraordinary abilities from magical locations or alien planets exist, how do you draw a line of belief? It's a question for the readers and for the characters in WONDER WOMAN VOL. 3: THE TRUTH by writer Greg Rucka and artists Liam Sharp, Renato Guedes and Bilquis Evely. Diana is confronted with an internal enemy rather than one she can lasso and punch.
She doesn’t occupy the story for long, but I couldn’t help but be fascinated with young Diana in Wonder Woman. The only child on an island of adults, her childhood would be unlike any other in history. What would that be like? Something tells me it wouldn’t go smoothly, and after reading Jill Thompson’s original graphic novel, WONDER WOMAN: THE TRUE AMAZON, it’s clear I’m not the only Wonder Woman fan who feels that way.
She’s been a beloved, heroic icon for 75 years, with fans across the world of every age, nationality and gender. Her image has graced comic books, clothing, toys, animation, food, games, art shows and just about everything else you can imagine. Her first live action movie was one of the most anticipated of the year and would shape how she appears in film for years to come.
