This a a fantastic read for all and especially new Wonder Woman fans. It is a feast of who's who and summarises the extensive and rather complicated story so far.

"Wonder Woman: The Ultimate Guide to the Amazon Princess" was an interesting and informative "dossier" of Wonder Woman in the comics. This book helped me realized that I am a fan of Lynda Carter's Wonder Woman, rather than how she is depicted in the comics. Perhap, I just need to re-familiarize myself with the Wonder Woman comics.

i enjoyed this even though it seemed kinda old i got this from a library and there were two of the pages that were torn out and then one of the pages half of it was torn out i loved that it was in color and that it was broken down into different sections that made it easier to read or find what you were looking for. i even learned some new things about wonder woman

An interesting glimpse into the history of Wonder Woman including sections on the various incarnations (Diana, Hippolyta and Artemis), her friends, her enemies and many of the major story lines. All of these are done in a very comic book style. The end of the book has a brief synopsis of every issue. Very interesting.

Chronicles of Han Storm Book Club Read (Confusing!)

Probably intended for children, this is a Comicon book relating the Biography of Wonder Women. An excellent visually enhanced read for children of all ages from 10 to 90!

If you are a comic freak - this book will be an asset to your collection.

Another nerd book for a superhero comic geek like me!:) I really like how it went into deep details of her backstory, her allies, her enemies, and her different stages in the comics. Really good!
