Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
With a classy and entertaining touch, Daniels delivers the goods on the comic world's most enduring female lead--from her unique creator (the unconventional Dr. William Moulton Marston, credited with inventing the lie detector and a champion of women's world dominance) and the early issues' bondage scenes to her resurgence as one of DC's "big guns" in the 1990s and beyond. The author of numerous comics histories, Daniels here covers 50-plus years of history and character evolution with a light, informative tone, respectful of the accomplishment but never blindly adoring. Tracing Wonder Woman's growth affords Daniels an opportunity to comment on comic history and the evolution of women's role in society over the same time period, making for insightful reading. Moreover, this lavishly illustrated work is just plain fun and would make a great addition to any public library's comics, popular art, or popular culture section. Libraries should also consider Daniels's Superman: The Complete History (Chronicle, 1998), Batman: The Complete History (Chroncle, 1999), Marvel: Five Fabulous Decades of The World's Greatest Comics (LJ 10/1/91), and DC Comics: Sixty Years of the World's Favorite Comic Book Heroes (LJ 12/95), which together offer readers a fairly rich overview of the comics' history.--Chris Ryan, New Milford, NJ Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
