Coming up from Insight Editions, Wonder Woman: The Way of the Amazons reveals the “illustrated, interactive history” of DC’s warrior princess.
Easily one of comicdom’s biggest and most enduring heroes, Wonder Woman has had quite the renaissance in recent years. Yes, she was always popular, but actress Gal Godot’s portrayal of her in the current crop of DC Comics films has really brought the Amazonian princess back to greatness.
The latest movie in that series, Wonder Woman 1984, was to have debuted in theaters by now. In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic though, it’s been bumped to this fall. That hasn’t stopped the arrival of action figures, and collectibles though. Nor has it thrown a monkey wrench into publisher Insight Editions’s plans.
Insight has made a habit of producing some excellent books based on movies and comics, and their latest tells the story of Princess Diana of Themyscira. Wonder Woman: The Way of the Amazons will delve deep into the mythology of DC Comics’ Grecian heroine.
