Overview
A #1 "New York Times" Bestseller

From the masterful minds of Grant Morrison (FINAL CRISIS, THE MULTIVERSITY) and Yanick Paquette (SWAMP THING, BATMAN, INC.) comes the most provocative origin of Wonder Woman you ve ever seen a wholly unique retelling that still honors her origins.
For millennia, the Amazons of Paradise Island have created a thriving society away from the blight of man. One resident, however, is not satisfied with this secluded life Diana, Princess of the Amazons, knows there is more in this world and wants to explore, only to be frustrated by her protective mother, Hippolyta. Diana finds her escape when Air Force pilot Steve Trevor, the first man she has ever seen, crashes onto their shores. With his life hanging in the balance, Diana ventures into the long forbidden world of men. The Amazons chase after her and bring her back to Paradise Island in chains to face trial for breaking their oldest law staying separated from the world that wronged them.
Thought-provoking yet reverent, thoroughly modern but still timeless, the power and courage of Paradise Island s greatest champion Wonder Woman is introduced in this new addition to DC Comics "New York Times"best-selling Earth One original graphic novel series."

Veteran comics scribe Morrison (Multiversity) reunites with his Batman Inc. partner Paquette to retell the origin of the most beloved female superhero for a new generation. Princess Diana of Paradise Island leads an idyllic life among her Amazonian sisters, but chafes under the rule of her mother, Queen Hippolyta. When pilot Steve Trevor crash-lands on the island, Diana becomes his salvation, returning him to the forbidden Man’s World and setting in motion a series of events that challenge Amazonia’s foundations. Nathan Fairbairn’s colors give the art a warm tone that stands out from many other superhero offerings of recent years, and Paquette’s bold, striking linework creates a vivid society. Morrison’s attempts to visually represent language barriers muddy the waters, but his script is otherwise a triumphant blend of Golden Age concepts with modern themes (like a glorious update for oft-maligned sidekick Etta Candy, who’s now a snarky, queer sorority sister). This book redefines an often misunderstood character. (Apr.)
