Absolute Wonder Woman By Brian Azzarello & Cliff Chiang Vol. 1



Raised as a daughter by the Queen of the Amazons, the warrior princess called Diana is different from the rest of her countrywomen. They’ve all heard the legend of how she was formed from clay to give the childless queen the daughter she dreamed of—and they treat her like an outsider and outcast because of it, no matter how hard she fights for justice as Wonder Woman in the outside world.

But far from the Amazons’ Paradise Island, the gods of Olympus are playing their own dark games. The prodigal son, Apollo, is making his move for father Zeus’ vacant throne, and vengeful gods and innocent humans are all caught in the crossfire.

And at the beating, bloody heart of the conflict? Wonder Woman, and a secret that will shatter everything she thought she knew. She is about to learn the truth about her origin. And when she does, blood will run…

Writer Brian Azzarello (100 BULLETS, DARK KNIGHT III: THE MASTER RACE) and artist Cliff Chiang (Paper Girls) create a bold new imagining for one of comics’ most iconic characters in this special collector’s edition. ABSOLUTE WONDER WOMAN BY BRIAN AZZARELLO AND CLIFF CHIANG VOLUME ONE stunningly reprints issues #0-18 of the duo’s acclaimed series, along with nearly 50 pages of character designs, sketch material and more.
