Ancient Amazon Archives Revisited…

Wonder-Woman-movie-poster-courage-theme.jpg

The first official reviews are in for the Wonder Woman movie, and by ‘The Mighty Chariot of Zeus’ they are universally in praise of the Themysciran Titan’s first outing on the silver screen. Currently holding a 97% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, it makes Gal Gadot and Patty Jenkins’ comic-book translated opus the highest rated Superhero movie ever… that’s right, my amazing Amazonian associates, EVER!

Now, if you are a veteran agent of Precinct1313, you will no doubt be aware that we adore the Amazon Herald, with well over 50% of the posts emanating from this Malefic Mansion of Mystery centered around the exploits of Zeus’ favoured daughterWith the recent influx of new agents to the Precinct (many thanks, and welcome by the way) and with not only the highly anticipated film releasing this Friday, but also Saturday June 3 being DC’s official Wonder Woman day, we believe now is the perfect time to repost our epic journey through the Ancient Amazon Archives that took place last year (and ended up being our most successful series of articles.) It began as a fun way to introduce our WW 75th anniversary comic cover countdown, but grew into something much grander as the series went on.

Over the next few days we shall relive that Herculean Odyssey from it’s humble beginnings. So don your stoutest walking boots, for we are about to journey into Amazon history…

A warm breeze caresses our face as we cross a small river that quietly flows its way through the centre of the paradise island known as Themyscira. Just up ahead lies the intricately carved gateway that leads down to the ancient Amazon archives, where great tales of heroism and legends may be found, and retold in “Classic Wonder Woman” Precinct1313’s comic cover countdown to the 75th anniversary of Diana Prince.

This weeks colossal cover celebrates the beginning of a new chapter for the Amazon Herald, as we join Donna Troy as the new holder of the title of Wonder Woman, in the very first issue of volume-3 of the awesome Amazon’s continuing adventures. This terrific tome is brought to you by – Writer: Allan Heinberg. Artists: Terry Dodson, Rachel Dodson, and Alex Sinclair, with the colossal cover by Terry Dodson. Released: August 2006.

The tantalising tale secreted behind the captivating cover is titled “Who Is WonderWoman” and picks up one year after the catastrophic events of Infinite Crisis. Diana has stepped away from the role of Wonder Woman, passing the mantle unto Donna Troy. Donna was once known as Wonder Girl and is Diana’s exact duplicate, brought to life by the Sorceress Magala originally as a playmate for the Themysciran Princess. Donna made her first appearance in The Brave and the Bold #60″ in 1965. Created by Bob Haney and Bruno Premiani. She is most fondly remembered as a founding member of The Teen Titans, though she has also allied herself with, The Justice League, Darkstars and the WhiteLantern Corps.

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

I knew if anyone could do that, it had to be Wondy! 🙂 Ooh, don’tforget to check out our newest Heroes From The Darkside article, if you get the time. 🙂 Hope you’re having a fab day. 🙂
