"And so Diana, the Wonder Woman, giving up her heritage, and her right to eternal life, leaves Paradise Island to take the man she loves back to America- the land she learns to love and protect, and adopts as her own!"

The book ends with the origin story of Wonder Woman and the writing is so powerful, that you would want to read it again.

One of my favourite origin stories!

El highlight de este cómic es la primera aparición de Wonder Woman, (razón por la que compré el cómic). Me encantó ver el primer origen que se le dio a este personajes, quién es uno de mis favoritos de todos los tiempos, y aunque no es mi or
