Happy Birthday Wonder Woman
In 1941 Wonder Woman #1 first appeared via newsstands on this date today, October 25th – a wonderful day to begin building this site!
The George Pérez reboot of Wonder Woman first got me into comic books at eight-years-old. When I saw that beautiful montage cover with images that looked like my mother kicking butt and had my name on it, Perez, I thought this book was made just for me! I was raised by a single mom who had many sisters (seven aunts total) so an epic tale of amazing women culminating in passing down wisdom to a little girl and filling her with this incredible sense of purpose, just blew my mind. I read and reread that issue every year until I was eighteen, it was my manifesto.
Here’s to all the generations of loving and strong women that have raised their children up, giving them a better tomorrow. The heritage of their devotion greatly inspires me.
