9780786471225: The Ages of Wonder Woman: Essays on the Amazon Princess in Changing Times

Created in 1941 by the psychologist William Marston, Wonder Woman would go on to have one of the longest continuous runs of published comic book adventures in the history of the industry. More than 70 years after her debut, Wonder Woman remains a popular culture icon. Throughout the intervening years many comic book creators have had a hand in guiding her story, resulting in different interpretations of the Amazon Princess.

In this collection of new essays, each examines a specific period or storyline from Wonder Woman comic books and analyzes that story in regard to contemporary issues in American society.

About the Author:

Joseph J. Darowski teaches English at Brigham Young University and has published on comic book superheroes such as the X-Men, Wonder Woman, and Superman as well as on television series such as Chuck and Frasier.

Review:

"A valuable contribution to the study of this character"--Journal of American Culture

"The character is both iconic and mysterious, recognizable but hard to understand. Part of the problem is that she has been repeatedly reinterpreted depending on the sensibilities of the era"--Year's Work in English Studies

"There are many things to like about Darowski's Ages of Wonder Woman...accessible and clearly written...provides much value to a general audience...especially those interested in the history of pop culture and Wonder Woman's place in it" --SFRA Review

"Nineteen essays about the Amazon warrior and how she's changed over the years...Wonder Woman has always been seen as one of the leading DC characters...few have had a real fix on what she is really about" --SFCrowsnest

"Goes into extensive detail about the individual characters starting from their origins and their transition and evolution through the decades...makes for fascinating reading" --Collector's Corner
