I know I’ve seen others, but in a quick search for all ages Wonder Woman books, I ran across this review from Good Comics for Kids: http://blog.schoollibraryjournal.com/goodcomicsforkids/2010/04/17/review-wonder-woman-trial-of-the-amazons/
But it’s true. Beyond 70s and 80s back issues, there’s not a lot of kid-friendly WW content out there.
That’s not a comic, though, is it?
Sadly, no. It’s just another in a long line of DC’s slights against Wonder Woman, who’s supposed to be the anchor female character. It’s not that I wouldn’t trust some younger readers to be able to comprehend what’s going on in the monthly book; it’s just that I wouldn’t want to expose them to the mountain of suck that is most of her story nowadays.
I really enjoyed Cassanova, but I’m not sure it’s something you read so much as something that you experience. Even by comic book standards it’s pretty convoluted (in only the best ways, but still). I’m surprised they’re re-issuing it as issues and not a trade.
Well, Scott Snyder created American Vampire, not Stephen King, but either way yes it’s a great book. 🙂
Don’t blame Jerry for being a pusher man, hooking the unwary.
(I went with King because I did some looking. There’s no way Scott Snyder’s name alone would get it a hardcover release out of the gate. Google says there’s 450,000+ results for “Stephen King” “American Vampire” versus just over 77,000 for “Scott Snyder” “American Vampire”, so it certainly looks like King’s the name to use when selling it, even if he’s a co-writer after-the-fact.
Hell, just look at today’s USA Today.)
Right on, Lydia. I mean, come on, Wonder Woman is a superhero *princess* and as such is pretty much a license to print money (50 kajillion backpacks and t-shirts and pajama sets and underoos and… can’t be wrong), so it always surprises the hell out of me that the little monthly periodical publishing arm of the Time-Warner licensing empire doesn’t make at least a token attempt at a sliver of that pie.
Stacey, that may not be a comic, but I think I’ll suggest that to my friends anyway. Thank you!
I’ve never understood the fascination with Wonder Woman. To me, Black Canary is an infinitely more interesting character.
One wears a brightly-colored costume and has bigger-than-life adventures; the other fights street crime while dressed in fetish chic. Which one do you think little girls are going to want to know more about?
