Wonder Woman Comic Book Covers Part 1

Wonder Woman Comic Book Covers Part 1

Like all classic comic book characters Wonder Woman had some terriffic covers and as part of this week long WW spectacular I plan to post my favorites in 2 or 3 parts.

Wonder Woman #1- Just classic.

Wonder Woman #19- I love the elephant but what's with that horribly stereo-typed African warrior? A little disturbing.

Wonder Woman #20- Honestly you can't go wrong with a pirate story.

Wonder Woman #25- I love this one! It's almost as if you can hear what she's thinking: "Hmmm if I only knew where they where! Say do you ever get the feeling like your being watched?"

Wonder Woman #63- Invisible? seems like I can see the enemy just fine.

Wonder Woman #97- Like pirates you can never go wrong with a dinosaur story. Say look at that girl racing up to meet Wonder Woman...looks like someone is gonna get some.

Wonder Woman #100- I can't figure out if there are two Wonder Women or if it's a motion effect. Still I like the idea of two Wonder Women.

Wonder Woman #105- An eagle...in space...?...? What does it breathe?

Wonder Woman #112- The chest of monsters? There's a boob joke to be made here.

Wonder Woman #125- Amoeba Man? Aren't Amoebas single celled organisms? Man that's one fucking huge cell.

Those are pretty cool. I love the white suit era, and also the George Perez covers myself.

Love that classic Wonder Woman #1 cover. I seem to recall Alex Ross doing a gorgeous recreation of it, but Google's image search isn't being my friend today.

Scurvy-
The Perez era is great and I have some of the Emma Peel white suit covers to post in the next round. Wonder Woman running a boutique...how strange.

Jess-
#1 is a great cover! I don't think I've seen the Alex Ross version...I'll have to seek it out.

The Ross version is contained inside the oversized one-shot "Spirit of Truth", and the rough sketch of it is in the book "Mythology: The DC Comics Art of Alex Ross", but since the pages aren't numbered, I can't tell you the page. ???

Thanks for the info I'll check out the book when I go to work tomorrow.
