ww 222 - Edited

Join us as we wend our way across the beautiful paradise island of Themyscira, before descending into the depths of the ancient Amazon archives in search of yet more ‘Classic Wonder Woman’  Precinct1313’s comic cover countdown to the 75th anniversary of the legendary Amazonian Princess.

This week’s terrific tome is brought to you by, Greg Rucka, Ray Snyder, Cliff Richards and Todd Klein, with another captivating cover by the talented JG. Jones. Released December, 2005. The tantalising tale secreted behind the classic cover is titled ‘Blood Debt’ and once again finds our hellenistic heroine tangling with her nemesis, Cheetah.

We’ve written about the felonious feline Cheetah on several occasions, being that she is one of our all time favourite supervillains. Wonder Woman’s constantly recurring arch-nemesis has been around since 1943 and was developed by Wondy’s creator William Moulton Marston. There have been several versions of the character over the decades, beginning with the original – Priscilla Rich, followed by Deborah Domaine and finally post-crisis variant (and our favourite) Barbara Minerva, who is easily the most deadly and ferocious of the pack.

In ‘Blood Debt‘ Diana and Cheetah face off once more. Diana is on trial at the Hague for the murder of the villainous Maxwell Lord (details on that right here, fact fans) after the incident was broadcast across the planet by the (Batman created) Brother Eye satellite system. Diana pleads not guilty to the charges and is given parole, but whilst residing in the Hague and awaiting trial, she is once again attacked by Cheetah, only this time, the malicious moggie manages to defeat a world weary Wonder Woman.

Join us again next time for another classic WW cover, my astounding Amazonian associates!
