That Time Wonder Woman…

Became A Crouton!

Hola my absolutely astonishing Amazonian associates, and welcome to the very first episode of – That Time Wonder Woman… a brand new ongoing chronicle of the Themysciran Titan’s strangest and most obscure adventures across the past eight enthralling decades of Diana’s reputable reign as THE queen of female superheroes. Beginning with this surreal soup de jour – Wonder Woman #217 from January 1975.

Over the past seventy nine years the scintillating scion of the sublime known as Wonder Woman has graced our lives with her ongoing odyssey to spread the message of hope, love and empowerment.

Throughout this formidable reign she has battled the causes of all societal ills including misogyny, racism, and poverty, but also… Gods of War, Tri-headed Demonic Dogs, Minotaurs, Alien Invasions and more. But do you remember that time she – became a surrogate mother to a dinosaur, fought a giant sentient egg (!?) teamed up with her teenage and toddler self to fight Mer-men, and, at one point, even took a job as a coffee shop barista to pay her rent… you don’t? well allow Precinct1313 to regale you with these outlandish tales and more through this surreal series, and introduce you to this oft overlooked wild and wacky world of wonder.

Wonder Woman Vol 1 #217 encompasses three tantalisingly terrific tales of the Themysciran Titan, including our cover story – The Day That Time Broke Loose. This crazy caper finds Wondy team up with the Emerald Archer – Green Arrow to fight that mighty master of illusions – The Duke Of Deception.

The hilarious hi-jinks included in this eccentric excursion include such delirious delights as, Diana believing she has used her golden lasso to truss the tenacious trickster, only to find that it is she herself that is entangled within her legendary lariat of Hestia. Green Arrow becoming so confused by the diabolical Duke’s mental malarkey he turns to hypnosis performed by none other than The Batman himself (I mean, is there anything the Bat is incapable of?) to set him straight, oh, and, a large bowl of soup with our heroic Hellenic herald as seasoning!!

Merciful Minerva, what a melodious mix of mirth and mayhem, yet in the wild world of weird Wonder Woman waxings this particular parable is rather run of the mill. So why not join us next episode on our ongoing obscure and outrageous odyssey with – That Time Wonder Woman…

  1. Weird and amusing simultaneously!
    Btw, you are one of the few people that use the correct term Hellenic instead of Greek. Kudos!

  2. Wondy soup? Goodness! That’s so crazy.
    Some of her adventures for the Hostess Twinkies and Cup Cakes ads were a bit mad too.
    Great idea for a series!
    In France we’ve got the release date of 16 Dec for WW84, so I can finally post my Wondy special next month 🙂
