Unfortunately, while Wonder Woman’s fan-base is probably one of the most loyal in the comics industry, the impact of her death barely merited a mention in the wider community, unlike the furore that occurred when Superman died, when even the National Press were running stories about it. Of course, it could be argued that Superman’s death had been the result of a heroic and titanic fight against the all powerful Doomsday, whereas Wonder Woman’s last moments were a one panel “zapping” by Neron. Hardly the sort of valiant, honourable death fitting a noble warrior such as Diana?

Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez provides a particularly poignant cover however.
