Beautiful as Aphrodite, Wise as Athena, Swifter than Mercury and stronger than Hercules, she is Wonder Woman!
This site is a labour of love and has been created as a resource for anyone interested in the original version of the iconic DC Comics' character, as well as perhaps allowing those unfamiliar with the previous incarnations of the Amazing Amazon to discover her past adventures in comics.
Amazon Archives covers her extensive history, from her debut in 1942, through her re-launch in the mid 1980's and through to the New 52 version of the Amazon Princess that was launched as part of DC Comics' reboot, which made changes to Diana's character, costume and most controversially, her origin. A more drastic and even more fundamental change was made to the look and attitude of the character several years later after this re-launch, leaving her all but unrecognisable and certainly no longer representative of the Amazon Princess that her creator, William Moulton Marston, had created and indeed envisaged being his legacy 75 years earlier. As a result, this site does not chronicle this version of Diana, who is "Wonder Woman" in name only.
Here you will find extensive cover galleries and detailed synopses of Wonder Woman related comics, together with a comprehensive appearance listing for both her pre-crisis and post crisis adventures, again with cover images where relevant.
For those like me who have always loved Diana, I'm sure you will find something to interest you, be it a trip down memory lane or a chance to appreciate what makes her so memorable and enduring. For those new to Wonder Woman and who perhaps have never understood why she has become such an icon, I hope this site will help you find the answer.
For me, writer Greg Rucka summed up Diana's appeal during his tenure on the book. He stated that Wonder Woman embodies the best of us in every way that matters. She embodies every one of our ideals; Wisdom. Intelligence. Compassion. Determination. Strength. Beauty. Grace. Devotion. And it is these qualities that make her so special and unique amongst comic book heroes.
Whatever your reason for visiting Amazon Archives, thank you for stopping by
and feel free to explore the life and times of Diana Prince, better known to
the world as "Wonder Woman"!
