Grade 8 Up–This volume collects the final five issues of Wonder Woman
, written by comic master Pérez in the mid-1980s. The story picks up after Diana has lived in America for some time, trying to spread the Amazonian message of peace. It begins with a mystery, as Wonder Woman's publicist has been murdered and Diana is determined to solve the hideous crime. Once this story line is resolved, much of the book takes place on Diana's home of Themyscira where readers are treated to stories from her childhood and the history of her people. The book ends with a major conflict when the god Hermes comes to America to impress people into worshiping the ancient gods again, but instead creates a giant mess, and it's Wonder Woman to the rescue. Fans of Greek mythology and classic comics will enjoy this volume.–Dawn Rutherford, King County Library System, Bellevue, WA
