This one shot graphic novel addressed the very real topic of domestic violence.  In the inside back cover, several figures and help lines were listed for those affected by the events in the story to get in touch and seek advice.

Synopsis

At a dig in Ireland, Julia Kapatelis and Moira Keneally uncover stone tablets with Greek on them, and ask Wonder Woman to translate. They uncover the forgotten history of the Ephesians and their princess, Artemis, and her struggle against the abductor of her mother, Theseus. Wonder Woman is saddened to learn that the violence that befell her own people was not an isolated incident, and neither is it a thing of the past, as she is forced to save doctor Keneally from her own abusive husband.
