From 1942 to 1954, a feature ran in the back of DC’s Wonder Woman comics highlighting powerful and innovative women from history. This week, DC’s new graphic novel anthology, Wonderful Women of the World , picks up where that feature left off and expands upon the short biographies and comic illustrations with longer pieces written, illustrated and colored by various (also powerful and innovative) women and nonbinary people.
Edited by author Laurie Halse Anderson (who in addition to many novels, also wrote Wonder Woman: Tempest Tossed , one of DC’s graphic novels for young adults), Wonderful Women of the World connects each highlighted woman through the lens of them being “wonder women” in their own rights—whether they’re athletes, entertainers, scientists, activists or someone who (on purpose) doesn’t fit any specific mold.
