Wonder Woman: The Twelve Labors

This 229 page tradeback is written by several guys that I barely know of. Len Wein was the only one I think I knew of, and same with the illustrators with Dick Giordano the only guy there I'd heard of.

Despite the relative lack of fame the creators have here it is a respectable work. This book reprints Wonder Woman v1 #212-222 which were originally published in the mid-70's. The action actually reminded me of the old Super Friends cartoon show with the level of belief suspension you would have to hold. Like, at one point :ww: actually lassos a fire. Not the burning object but the flames themselves. So if you're feeling nostalgic for the "good old fashioned super heroine fun" then this is a goldmine for you, buddy.

The story goes that Wondy got her powers back and now needs to prove to herself and the JLA that she can rejoin them (although they already invited her to rejoin at jump).

Cover priced at $15 you get a big book for it, albeit the pages are printed on regular bond paper (not the slickey pages). It's totally worth getting if you're looking for something old fashioned or just curious to see what comics were like back then. They were like a Super Friends episode. Read it to your kids or thrill the little kid in you.
