Episode 34 – The Wonder Woman Episode

In this episode, Curt and Kevin prepare for the long-awaited Wonder Woman movie with a look at the comic-book origins of everyone’s favorite Amazon, including her brief introduction in 1941’s All-Star Comics #8 and her debut in the pages of her very own magazine, 1942’s Wonder Woman #1, published by DC Comics!

After that, it’s on to a more contemporary take on the character’s formative years, as writer and artist Jill Thompson presents us with a Princess Diana we haven’t seen before—brash, bratty and a tad unsympathetic—in the Eisner Award-nominated 2016 graphic novel Wonder Woman: The True Amazon!

Can the headstrong young Diana win the favor of indifferent stable girl Alethea? Can the powerful princess save injured American intelligence officer Steve Trevor and defeat a pretty unfortunate caricature of a Japanese spy? And most importantly, can the amazing Amazon pilot her invisible plane to that island paradise of pulp periodicals known as … The Comics Canon?
