Spotlight: Golden Age "Wonder Women"

We spotlight a lot of stuff that CV users do around the site every week, but I wanted to draw some attention to a particular wiki page that two awesome users on CV, RazzaTazz and SC, have been putting a lot of their time into.

Unless you are really familiar with the Golden Age Wonder Woman comic books, you may not know that in the back of the first issues of Wonder Woman was a section dedicated to highlighting some of the most influential women in history. In an effort to draw attention to these important women, these two kids highlighted the appearances of all the important historical figures on the "Wonder Women of History" page here. Check it out!

Would you like to see something like this return and be published in the back of Wonder Woman comics? Who would you like to see on the list?

I think it would be a great idea. Screw the PCs and do it, I say. First on the list: I don't know. All the women I know are from pop culture. It seems to be the "it" thing. "Wonder Women of History" would be a great feature so that guys like me could see women better than what TMZ portrays.

Awwh thank you Babs! *red*  
 
I wonder about the formatting of modern day comics. Then the price factor. I wonder if it could be implemented into TPB's or digital format to cut down costs. Still, I love reading about real life unsung heroes.

Ah back in the days where she lost all her powers when a man tied her up.

I would absolutely love to see DC begin this feature in WW books again. They shouldn't have stopped, imagine what this list would have looked like over the years... it's never too late to start a new.

I appreciate both Razza Tazz and SC's work on this project, thank you for showcasing it Sara.

I've been trying to get books on Comic Books and Feminism, and this is the only one I can find on Amazon. Have you read it, or can you recommend something else?

Comments in Amazon don't seem to encouraging. I'm not sure one book can do Wonder Woman and the history of women in comics justice.
