In just over 75 years, Superman and Wonder Woman have risen to become two of the most recognizable faces in fantasy. He was rocketed to Earth from the dying world of Krypton and given superpowers by our yellow sun. She was gifted qualities by the Greek Gods, stronger than Hercules, wiser than Athena…
Yet, as time has passed by, both have become more complex. While saving the world, they have remained outsiders, with few understanding the burden that power brings. No wonder they enjoyed a controversial romance, becoming a ‘power couple’ in recent times.
Celebrating not only the rich creative history of these two icons, but the work of the writers and artists that have breathed life into them, this guide features work from such immortal talents as Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, John Byrne and Jim Lee.
