This book begins with Wonder Woman #2 and ends with Wonder Woman #3. In between, the book features Wonder Woman stories form Sensation Comics #10-#14 and Comics Cavalcade #1.

Moulston's plotting of Wonder Woman #2 and #3 is particularly clever. After Wonder Woman #1 followed the popular practice the day of four unrelated stories starring the heroine, in Both Wonder Woman magazines we're presented with four stories that are closely related. The first set teamed Wonder Woman against Ares, the god of War in a story that seemed like a Justice Society in reverse as each featured a different sub-villain battling Wonder Woman. Mars himself is up in the first story followed by attacks by Greed, Deception, and Conquest. Thus Moulston used Greek mythology to create a modern parable of war.

In Wonder Woman #3, the four stories focus on Wonder Woman challenging the baroness Von Gunther.

Wonder Woman at this point in her history has a solid supporting cast with back up from Steve Trevor and the surprisingly competent Etta Candy. In one story, it's even revealed that Wonder Woman belongs to a local bowling league. (Wouldn't you love to bowl against that team.)

The book is one that parents should be cautious about sharing with their kids. The book's pseud-paganism and constant use of slave imagery as some sort of feminist metaphor is kind of surprising for the 1940s, and it's something parents should be aware of before buying.

I am so glad that DC is finally putting out the Golden Age Wonder Woman stories from the 40's and at a reasonable price,The stories in this vol are really good and sometimes fall on the silly and far fetch side,but the artwork is astonishing, I am looking forward to the next installment,Hopefully DC Comics will continue to keep release more Wonder Woman Chronicles and hopefully they will make a Supergirl Chronicles as well.

This is a book for a) die-hard Wonder Woman fans, b) those interested in comics history: essential reading in either category.

Also linguists, because the English is unique and...wonderful!

This is the way comics used to be and should be. I hope they publish Vol 3 in the next few months.
