Top 5 Wonder Woman Comics Everyone Should Read

Only the best for the best superhero

Posted on

1. The Wonder Woman Chronicles Volumes 1-3 by William Moulton Marston

DC Comics / Via comics verse

An origin story of epic proportions. Wonder Woman was created by William Marston during a time where the country was heading in its second world war. Marston created the character based on his belief that all men are capable of war and suffering and nothing else. However, he also believed that women are destined to take over society and spread love and peace. He created Wonder Woman based on these principles and the first three issues chronicle Diana Prince’s origin story and how she became the world’s most famous heroine.

2. WONDER WOMAN: SPIRIT OF TRUTH By Paul Dini and Alex Ross

This issue is extremely significant because it dares to look at Wonder Woman under the surface and how she gracefully balances her masculine and feminine characteristics. While it does sound boring it really isn’t, Paul Dini highlights Wonder Woman’s core while Alex Ross draws it beautifully.

3. WONDER WOMAN VOL. 1: BLOOD By Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang

DC Comics / Via dccomics.com

This volume of Wonder Woman is part of the New 52 project by DC Comics, while highly protested, the graphic novel by Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang is highly praise. The comic is Wonder Woman’s origin story reimagined featuring famous Greek gods and goddesses.

4. WONDER WOMAN: THE HIKETEIA by Greg Rucka, J.G. Jones

So, this one is different than the others. The reason why is because the Hiketeia is written under much darker themes than previous Wonder Woman comics. The story surrounds Diana and her decision to provide sanctuary to a girl named Danielle, however, Danielle has a very dark past with DC Comics hero Batman and he wants revenge.

5. WONDER WOMAN: GODS AND MORTALS By George Perez

DC Comics / Via wiki

This one is a top fan favorite. Gods and Mortals paints Wonder Woman as the star of the ultimate heroine with tones of drama, tragedy, and everything in between beautifully woven together. It represents Wonder Woman in a way that many writers have tried but failed to do. The novel features Wonder Woman as a badass go getter who refuses to accept society’s rules of how women should behave and get what they want.
