Abstract
Through a celebration and critique of the comics character of Wonder Woman, this collection takes up the historical trends that have changed the world of comics, American popular culture, and feminism.
In honor of the 75th anniversary of the comic book super heroine Wonder Woman in 2016, Kent State University and the Cleveland Public Library partnered to celebrate the intersections of public literacy, comics, and feminism in a jointly sponsored symposium. Centering on the figure of Wonder Woman, the special issue of the Journal of Graphic Novels and Comics that this volume is based on collected the presentations and interviews from the event. This book will fortuitously appear in honor of Wonder Woman’s 80th anniversary and pays respect to "herstory" while recognizing her perpetual relevance to our present day, and beyond.
Like its progenitor, it reflects the historical trends that have changed the world of comics, American popular culture, and feminism so relevant to our current moment. It also highlights an interview with Mariko Tamaki, the current writer of Wonder Woman comics, as well as new editorial reflections in a Foreword and an Afterword.
