Andy Mangels has a page on his website about the upcoming Wonder Woman Companion. Contrary to the Amazon (heh) date information, it’s not out yet. It’s due next year at $34.95 from TwoMorrows. It’s promised to be an
in-depth guide to the history of Wonder Woman’s Golden Age, including the fantasy, the politics, and the controversies, as well as an intimate look at her creators, William Moulton Marston and Harry G. Peter. [In addition to covering the TV series,] the effect of the Amazing Amazon on the women’s movement will be explored, from women’s lib to an exploration of the little-known philanthropic organization, the Wonder Woman Foundation. A modern-day look at the relaunch of the series in the 1980s will spotlight creators such as George Perez, John Byrne, Brian Bolland, Phil Jimenez, Greg Rucka, Allan Heinberg, Terry Dodson, Gail Simone, and Adam Hughes, while an in-depth look at the long development of the Wonder Woman feature film will reveal a Paradise Island full of surprises!
Update: The book was cancelled.
