Classic Wonder Woman: Wonder Woman (Vol 2) #100
Welcome once more my Themysciran sisters and brothers to another instalment of Classic Wonder Woman, Precinct1313’s weekly comic cover countdown to the 75th anniversary of the awesome Amazon. This week we delve into the Amazon archives to bring you; Wonder Woman (vol-2) #100, written by William Messner-Loebs, with cover art by Brian Bolland and interior art by Mike Deodato Jr. Released in August 1995.
And we celebrate yet another centennial issue as Volume 2 of the Themysciran Princess’ adventures in Man’s world reaches issue #100. Available in both a standard version and a deluxe Holo-Foil variant edition, and fronted once more by an outstanding Brian Bolland illustration, the titanic tale secreted behind this stunning cover is titled ‘Blank Madness.’
Diana regains her role as Wonder Woman after losing her right to be the Amazon herald through an ancient Themysciran competition of strength and wits, which her estranged Amazon sister Artemis won, and briefly becomes Themyscira’s chosen advocate to Man’s world. Artemis’ last stand as Wonder Woman depicts her in a colossal struggle against a horde of hell-spawned demons and Diana’s arch-enemy, the malevolent Cheetah. Artemis ultimately succumbs to the overwhelming odds and falls valiantly in battle, dying a heroes death, which is a noble distinction amongst the Amazons.
Join us again next week for another classic WW cover, my adventurous Amazonian associates!
