Book Description

25 July 2006 Wonder Woman (DC Comics Paperback)
Written by Phil Jimenez; Art by Phil Jimenez and Andy Lanning; Cover by Adam Hughes Wonder Woman's world is falling to pieces. Her home of Paradise Island has faced a devastating civil war, and her mother, Queen Hippolyta, has abolished the monarchy, ending Diana's status as a princess. But the Amazing Amazon must contend with far worse in the adventures that confront her in this volume collecting WONDER WOMAN #171-177, as well as select Profile Pages from WONDER WOMAN SECRET FILES #3. Acclaimed writer/artist Phil Jimenez (New X-Men) is joined by inker Andy Lanning and cover artist Adam Hughes for one of the most difficult chapters of Diana's life. With additional art by Travis Moore, Brandon Badeaux and others, this story reveals a dear friend of Diana's transformed into a deadly enemy; a new, more menacing Cheetah; an intergalactic war - with terrible consequences for our heroine; and the return of an arch-nemesis that may spell doom for the male super-heroes of the world. The relentless onslaught is almost too much for Wonder Woman to bear! Arguing with her mother becomes the least of Diana's concerns as she joins countless heroes in the battle against Imperiex. And when Circe initiates her revenge against the Amazon, the world's super-heroines join Diana in a fight against the evil witch and several other female super-villains. With battle after battle facing Wonder Woman, is there any hope that Diana can find paradise?

5.0 out of 5 stars The Death of the Golden Age Wonder Woman! 21 May 2003
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
"Paradise Found" contains writer/artist Phil Jimenez's two best issues of Wonder Woman (No. 172 and No. 173) in his entire two-year run on the monthly Wonder Woman comic book. Not since the death of the Silver Age Supergirl in 1985's "Crisis on Infinite Earths" has the death of a DC super-heroine been treated with the emotion and the respect she deserves. "Paradise Found" begins with tragedy - one of Diana's best friends, Vanessa Kapatelis, has been transformed by Circe (yes, the very same enchantress from Homer's Odyssey) from a sweet teenager into one of Diana's deadliest nemeses, the Silver Swan. Meanwhile, Diana is upset that her mother, Hippolyta, is slowly usurping her role as the one true Wonder Woman. (Note: Hippolyta travelled back in time to the Second World War to become the Golden Age Wonder Woman, a role she continues to occupy on her return to our present era. Thus, there are two Wonder Women when "Paradise Found" begins.) Diana's confusion at the change in her young friend and her own worsening relationship with her mother are soon overwhelmed by an intergalactic war that reaches Earth - survivors of many alien worlds have banded together to fight against a cosmic entity called the Imperiex, and Earth is chosen as their last stand. Diana is seriously injured while battling alongside her fellow Justice Leaguers to stop an Imperiex attack on Earth. Hippolyta bravely puts on her own Wonder Woman armour to fight the war in Diana's stead, but is tragically killed while protecting Greece from another of Imperiex's deadly attacks. Phil Jimenez's art and prose successfully captures Diana's anguish at her mother's death, and Hippolyta's sacrifice is portrayed as noble, majestic and, above all, supremely maternal. The queen of the Amazons deserves no less. Diana has no time to grief for her mother however, despite feeling tremendous guilt that she had failed to make amends with her mother before she died. The war grows increasingly bloody, and Diana has to convince the Amazons to form an alliance with Darkseid, the dark god who had previously killed almost half their number. With heroes and villains fighting alongside, the war is finally won. However, Circe takes advantage of the superheroes' exhaustion at the end of the war to launch a full scale attack, transforming all the male superheroes into animals and letting villainesses loose upon them. The rest of "Paradise Found" charts Diana's journey to redemption. I cannot sing enough praises for Phil Jimenez's art which, like George Perez's, is full of tiny details that keep a reader engrossed. To get the full story of the war against the Imperiex, also read the two-volume "Superman: Our Worlds at War" (where Wonder Woman No. 172 and 173 are also reproduced). "Our Worlds at War" is not DC's best crossover around, but is still worth reading.
5.0 out of 5 stars phil jimenez love story to the real Wonder Woman 5 May 2014

A smart capable and intelligent woman so unlike the beast Wonder Woman of the new 52. Her greatest battles and her greatest loses.... the evil of Dan Didio is seen here. Great art and great story.
1.0 out of 5 stars Perfect example of terrible writing! 2 Jan 2013
By S. Penrose - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Here is the exact example of why DC Comics fell far behind Marvel in the late 90s-early 2000s. The previous collection was a great starting point into Wonder Woman's world. We were seeing new takes on old villains. We saw a great supporting cast with some superb family issues. This collection started that way and then suddenly you are thrown in the middle of DC wide event involving Imperiex. The whole story goes off the rails. We see an obvious death, random fights, bizarre guest appearances, and connections to other stories that don't make any sense. At one point there are dozens of female heroes and villains without a plausible reason. Almost like an executive at DC said, "Wouldn't it cool if someone drew this....?" Its terrible. The worst part of all is that Phil Jimenez's art is phenomenal but wasted on this. His scripting skills are definitely lacking but as penciler he shines. The covers by Adam Hughes are amazing as well. Overall, this is not worth the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Issue! 27 Nov 2009
By Dora - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
So suspenseful and so sad. This paperback carries the scene of Hippolyta's death, which is trule heart-wrenching to read. Great issue overall, however, with the beautiful panel art and the wonderful story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dramatic 2 Feb 2009
By Katherine Blackwell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was educational, filled with action and somewhat of a tear jerker. A must for any WW fan.
