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


Formats & editions


Eisner Award-winning author Brian Azzarello creates a new exciting direction for one of DC’s best-known heroes, Wonder Woman, with spectacular art by Cliff Chiang and Tony Akins!

The warrior princess called Diana, raised as a daughter by Hippolyta, the Queen of the Amazons, is different from the rest of her countrywomen. They’ve all heard the legend of how she was created to give the childless queen the daughter she dreamed of, and they treat her like an outsider because of it.

But much bigger problems are arising far from the Amazons’ Paradise Island, in Olympus. The prodigal son and god Apollo is making his move for father Zeus’ vacant throne, and both vengeful gods and innocent humans are 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. Wonder Woman will learn the truth about her origin.

In ABSOLUTE WONDER WOMAN BY BRIAN AZZARELLO AND CLIFF CHIANG VOL. 1, writer Brian Azzarello (100 BULLETS, DARK KNIGHT III: THE MASTER RACE) and artist Cliff Chiang (Paper Girls) create a bold new imagining of one of comics’ most iconic characters. This special Absolute Edition stunningly reprints the first 19 issues of the acclaimed series, along with nearly 50 pages of character designs, sketch material and more.
