This anthology of Wonder Woman stories is worthy of its sensational title. Each story features a different writer and artist, and though some of the plots struggle to rise above supervillain-of-the-week fisticuffs, there’s not a bum artist in the mix. From Ethan Van Sciver’s (Green Lantern, The Flash: Rebirth) superheroics to the cartoonish fantasy of Hernandez (Love and Rockets), the all-star creative team approaches Wonder Woman from nearly every angle. The standout story is “Brace Yourself,” by Jason Bischoff and David A. Williams, a tale of Princess Diana’s youth and how she earned the honor of being Paradise Island’s ambassador—and the title of Wonder Woman. The best of the superhero fisticuffs is “Ghosts and Gods,” by Neil Kleid (Jewish in America) and Dean Haspiel (The Fox), guest-starring Deadman, who never overshadows Wonder Woman. Instead, the presence of a helpful, undead ghost illuminates ideas about faith, gods, and what it means to live in a world where such things are real. It can be difficult to find a modern, appropriately epic Wonder Woman comic book­­, but this volume has half a dozen. (Apr.)

Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman Vol. 1 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

It is unclear whether these are original stories or re-imaginings of stories that first appeared in the original Sensation Comics, either way they are exciting and a ton of fun. Presented in the old format of comics where only one to three issues contained a storyline, the stories are otherwise unrelated. Some feature Wonder Woman as an adult, some as a child, some as an established superhero, others flashback to her time on Paradise Island. Each story arc has different writers and illustrators so WW is given different looks, some as we would expect and one I found very unsettling (she looked more like Arnold Schwartzenegger). The only thing that put me off were the PSAs dropped in about three times altogether. Perhaps this is in imitation of the original Sensation Comics, if so I'm sure I would find those campy and out-dated, but the modern PSAs here are incredibly heavy-handed, eye-rolling, preachy and could be offensive if you don't agree with them. That brings my rating down to a four, otherwise I was completely captivated by the stories which included a host of popular (and not so popular) villains and a few cameos from other superheroes. Delightfully enough one of favourites appeared: Deadman!
