For the first time since her original entry into the world of superhero comics in 1941, Wonder Woman has her own record-breaking blockbuster movie. Diana, Princess of the Amazons, is the best-known and most enduring female superhero of all time. The only live action version of Wonder Woman prior to Gal Gadot’s debut in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice last year was the 1975 TV show starring Lynda Carter, which I grew up watching in the 1980s. I don’t remember much of it apart from the theme music, but I did have a Wonder Woman outfit that I wore as often as my parents would let me.
I have already seen the new Wonder Woman movie twice, and I absolutely loved it. However, it shames me to admit I have never read the comics. So I did what I always do when I need to catch up on my reading: I turned to my library.
