A more controversial yet still well done run shows the mighty Amazonian Princess fighting the pantheon of Greek Gods and even have a brief meeting with Orion and the New Gods as well.  If you are ok with a more violent interpretation of the character it may be worth a look.  And then of course there’s also Cliff Chang’s amazing art.

 

Wonder Woman: The Golden Age  By William Moulton Marston (1942-1947)

Where it all began, the original Golden Age tells of Wonder Woman are always worth revisiting.  We see Diana fight Nazis and villains of all shapes and sorts.
