According to Amazon, DC Comics is planning to release a much-anticipated Wonder Woman collection on July 10. The Twelve Labors reprints Wonder Woman #212-222 from 1974-1976. (Yes, eleven issues.) During this storyline, Wonder Woman has had her powers restored (after the white-suit I Ching period), but she’s uncertain whether she’s still worthy to be part of the JLA. Various Justice League members join her on 12 missions to evaluate her membership. The order is as follows:
- Green Lantern
- Black Canary
- Green Arrow
- Red Tornado — and boy, get this story description: “An astrologer taps into Diana’s mental powers and uses them to disrupt her ability to use her weapons” — plus the Phantom Stranger, in two separate, shorter stories
- Elongated Man — who helps Wonder Woman free a planet of “enslaved women”
- Atom and Hawkman
Covers of all the individual issues can be seen at the “I Am Walter” blog, which broke the news.
It’s a neat idea to get Wonder Woman teamed up with a variety of well-known superheroes, with resonance for her mythological history, but the whole “oh, I’m not sure I’m good enough” approach may rankle with more modern readers. Personally, I’d like to see a collection of the Judgment in Infinity three-issue storyline, #291-293 from 1982, since that features appearances by just about every female DC hero of the era as they face off against the four horsemen of the apocalypse.
