Using vintage art and classic storytelling, comics author Kurt Busiek (Astro City) and artist Trina Robbins (Wimmen's Comix) bring to life a spectacular and endearing retro Amazon Princess in their never-before-reprinted miniseries The Legend of Wonder Woman. This all-new collection also includes Busiek's tale of "Paradise Burning!" from Wonder Woman #318 (illustrated by Irv Novick and Rick Magyar) and Robbins' chapter from 1989's Wonder Woman Annual #2 (written by Lee Marrs).
In the aftermath of a universe-shattering crisis, an inanimate clay figure is all that remains of Wonder Woman, champion and defender of Paradise Island…until Queen Hippolyta uses a magic sphere to revisit the past and remind the Amazons of the bravery and fortitude of their fallen princess.
When Atomia, the mercurial ruler of a subatomic galaxy, suddenly attacks Washington, D.C. and kidnaps Steve Trevor, Diana must pursue this would-be conqueror around the world to free her prisoners from their deadly bondage—all while looking after Etta Candy's headstrong young cousin, Suzie.
But Diana's rescue plan falters when she is betrayed in the Land of Mirrors and delivered in chains to Atomia. How can Wonder Woman manage to save the captives and stop Suzie from joining the atomic queen when she doesn't know friend from foe? And even more important: Will reopening these memories restore Princess Diana to her people?
