“Hola” once again fellow fans of the amazing Amazon, and welcome back to Classic Wonder Woman, Precinct1313’s weekly comic cover countdown to the 75th anniversary of Diana of Themyscira. This week we present you with; Wonder Woman (Volume 2) #36. Written by George Perez and Mindy Newell, with cover and interior art by Chris Marrinan and George Perez. Released in November 1989.
This weeks terrific tale is titled “Changes In The Wind” and we join Diana and her Amazon sisters as they prepare to celebrate one of their most sacred traditions “The Feast Of Five.”
One of the Amazon’s most revered and ancient traditions The Feast Of Five, is celebrated every year to pay homage to the five patron goddesses of Olympus who were instrumental in their creation. Apart from constant prayers and reverence to their creators, the occasion begins with a hunt, in honour of the goddess Artemis. This is followed by a harvest in praise of the goddess Demeter, after which a feast is held to eulogise their remaining creators. The Feast Of Five not only commemorates the goddesses who created the Amazons, but is also recognised as a holy birthday for the entire Amazon race.
Join us again next week for another classic WW cover, my admirable Amazonian associates!
