Description

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.
Thought-provoking yet reverent, thoroughly modern but still timeless, the power
and courage of Paradise Island's greatest champion-Wonder
Woman-is introduced in this new addition to DC Comics's New York
Times best-selling Earth One original graphic novel series.

Review quote

"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."
-BOOKLIST *STARRED*

"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."
--NEWSARAMA

"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

"Yanick Paquette's art celebrates the clear confidence of Diana and the Amazons."
--PASTE MAGAZINE

"A triumphant blend of Golden Age concepts with modern themes... This book redefines an often misunderstood character."
-PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

"The combination of Diana'a adventurous spirit, curiosity and boundless compassion make this easily one of the most satisfying takes on the character in a long time."
