"On the hidden island of Themyscira, the Amazons, led by Queen Hippolyta, live in a kingdom of peace, protected by the gods. But the balance is upset when Hippolyta is granted what no immortal may have: a child, given life from the clay of the island-- the princess Diana, who alone can sense the evil that is infesting the Amazon's home. When a man from the outside world is brought to Themyscira as part of a conspiracy to overthrow its queen, Diana will risk everything to save his innocent life-- and lose everything in the process. Soon, the Amazon princess finds herself in a world she never knew existed--America, a land of untold wonders that finds itself threatened by a great war abroad. In order to get back home, Diana and her new friends Steve Trevor and Etta Candy must head into the war zone and find the Nazi agent known as the Duke of Deception, who wields a powerful artifact that belongs to Hippolyta. And in order to defeat this powerful enemy, the princess of peace must become the hero she was meant to be. She must become Wonder Woman!" -- dust jacket back.

by the way, the theatrical feature of wonder woman, has a lot of this back story, and it helps to make the movie an enjoyable experience. I didn't even see the 3d ! this was made by dc comics company, which is competitive with marvel comics, now on the screen, too. the picture will likely be enhanced by reading this book.

Great story and art, re-imagining a lot of Diana's early years and going into WW2.

Awesome read to get ready for the movie.

A revisitation of Wonder Woman's World War Two origins done recently, this does not reflect the current incarnation of the character. There are nods towards the greater DC universe of the time as Diana leaves her homeland behind and finds herself in a world at war. The story flows well for the most part.
