Format: Paperback
"Paradise Found" contains writer/artist Phil Jimenez's two best issues of Wonder Woman (No. 172 and No. 173) in his entire two-year run on the monthly Wonder Woman comic book. Not since the death of the Silver Age Supergirl in 1985's "Crisis on Infinite Earths" has the death of a DC super-heroine been treated with the emotion and the respect she deserves. "Paradise Found" begins with tragedy - one of Diana's best friends, Vanessa Kapatelis, has been transformed by Circe (yes, the very same enchantress from Homer's Odyssey) from a sweet teenager into one of Diana's deadliest nemeses, the Silver Swan. Meanwhile, Diana is upset that her mother, Hippolyta, is slowly usurping her role as the one true Wonder Woman. (Note: Hippolyta travelled back in time to the Second World War to become the Golden Age Wonder Woman, a role she continues to occupy on her return to our present era. Thus, there are two Wonder Women when "Paradise Found" begins.) Diana's confusion at the change in her young friend and her own worsening relationship with her mother are soon overwhelmed by an intergalactic war that reaches Earth - survivors of many alien worlds have banded together to fight against a cosmic entity called the Imperiex, and Earth is chosen as their last stand. Diana is seriously injured while battling alongside her fellow Justice Leaguers to stop an Imperiex attack on Earth. Hippolyta bravely puts on her own Wonder Woman armour to fight the war in Diana's stead, but is tragically killed while protecting Greece from another of Imperiex's deadly attacks. Phil Jimenez's art and prose successfully captures Diana's anguish at her mother's death, and Hippolyta's sacrifice is portrayed as noble, majestic and, above all, supremely maternal. The queen of the Amazons deserves no less.Read more ›

One of the most magical stories from DC Comics! Wonder Woman is Nomber 1!!!! I especially like the transformation Sebastian Ballesteros undergoes as the third Cheetah to combat Wonder Woman, as well as many of the other transformations (although I may not understand why they had Green Lantern transform into a wildebeest) and fight scenes. Although I do wish Poison Ivy got more screen time. Other than that, Wonder Woman: Paradise Found is a satisfying addition and must have to many DC Comics fans!

A smart capable and intelligent woman so unlike the beast Wonder Woman of the new 52. Her greatest battles and her greatest loses.... the evil of Dan Didio is seen here. Great art and great story.
