WONDER WOMAN: THE TRUE AMAZON is Jill Thompson's storybook-style
reimagining of the early years of the Amazon Princess Diana, who would grow up
to become Wonder Woman. This fully painted original graphic novel is unlike any
Wonder Woman tale you have ever read, told as only Eisner Award-winning
writer/artist Thomspon could. When young Diana has the fawning attention of a
nation, she soon grows spoiled. But a series of tragic events take their toll,
and Diana must learn to grow up, take responsibility, and seize her destiny.
Steeped in the mythology of this iconic character's original conception, WONDER
WOMAN: THE TRUE AMAZON is designed to appeal to a wide range of readers. It's a
fresh, stand alone interpretation of the most famous and iconic female superhero
of all time and the fulfillment of a dream project by one of contemporary
comics' most acclaimed creators.
