In honour of hallowed Hellenic herald – Wonder Woman’s upcoming 80th anniversary, DC Comics have commissioned this superb and scintillating six issue mini-series, an astounding anthology album embellished in magnificent monochromatic hues of gold and black! This astonishing analect comprises tenacious tales of the Themysciran Titan by comic-book alums – John Arcudi, Nadia Shammas, AJ Mendez, Becky Cloonan, Amy Reeder, Ming Doyle, Ramona Fradon, Joshua Middleton, Ryan Sook, Warren Louw, David Mack Jen Bartel, Morgan Beem, Sandra Hope and Carla Cohen… phew! a classic and compelling cadre of charismatic comic creatives!Β 

Featuring five fabulous fables that run the glorious gamut of Diana’s eight decade history – John Arcudi and Ryan Sook combine to weave a thrilling tale of Diana’s illustrious immortality, while Becky Cloonan imparts an indomitable account of Wondy’s most valuable weapon against the darkness of man’s world. Amazing Amy Reeder transports us back to the Golden Age of comics for a riotous and rambunctious romp with edacious Etta Candy, then AJ Mendez and Ming Doyle whisk us away to Themyscira for a terse and tense family reunion and finally, Nadia Shammas and Morgan Beem present a prescient parable of Diana’s past failures returning to haunt her.

Wonder Woman: Black And Gold #1 is a tremendous tribute to Gaea’s glorious gal, with a stunning monochrome visual design inspired by Diana’s golden lasso. Five fabulous tales impart the many fascinating facets that encompass the powerful yet passionate princess of Themyscira, and with a veritable virtuoso of vaunted variant covers to collect (including a return from artistic auteur – Ramona Fradon) Wonder Woman: Black and Gold comes highly recommended.

  1. Hiya Bruce. By all the gods, what a treat from DC! The idea to render in black and gold is superb. Some of those covers have a tarot or oracle card feel to them. Just wonderful! Thanks for the share.
