We’re big fans of Wonder Woman here at the Lazy Inquisitor. And by ‘we’, of course, I mean ‘I’. And by ‘I’, I mean ‘my wife’. Still, not even she can stomach this collection of the Amazon’s 1960’s adventures. Typical plots involve Wonder Woman’s struggle to rescue simpering Steve Trevor as he haplessly shuffles from one cock-up to another. This volume also introduces Wonder Girl, and her struggle to rescue simpering excrescence Mer-Boy from hapless undersea peril. It gets worse: Wonder Tot. Nobody simpers over Wonder Tot, because Wonder Tot is annoying. If it weren’t for the appearance of Angle Man (whose excellent superpower is that ‘he always has an angle’) the book would beyond redemption. Stick with Wonder Woman Volume 4 instead; that one’s quite good. 1/5
