Good stuff:

-New 52 ongoing
-both of Greg Rucka’s runs
-Blackest Night: Wonder Woman (a mini-series by Rucka)
-William Messner-Loeb and Mike Deodato’s run on Wonder Woman v2 (the 1987-2006 book)
-John Byrne’s run on WW v2
-George Perez’s time on WW v2

Not a solo Wonder Woman title, but Superman/Wonder Woman is a fun read.

Original graphic novels worth looking into are Wonder Woman: The True Amazon and Wonder Woman: Earth One volumes one and two.

That’s a good start on WW books that are worth lassoing up and diving into.

Greg Rucka’s books are really the only good ones, IMHO. The problem is that almost every other WW story is just some extra secret revealed about her origin (which at this point is so convoluted as to be almost inexplainable). It’s such a shame, too. DC should really put more effort into making good Wonder Woman books. She’s as much a part of the Trinity as Superman or Batman.

Oh and Perez and Rucka. Sorry all I saw was favorite storylines.
The legend of WW 2015 not the older one ( it’s great too tho) but for a self contained comic I read it without stopping after issue #1.

Great Hera, I forgot Allan Heinberg’s run on the '06-'11 WW book. “Who is Wonder Woman?” is one of my favorite WW stories ever, as is The Odyssey by J. Michael Straczynski and Phil Hester.

Superman vs. Wonder Woman is alot of fun too.

I really enjoyed Alan Heinberg and Terry Dodson’s “Who is Wonder Woman?” (WW vol. 3 #1-4, Annual #5.) I’m not a big fan of “Warrior Princess” WW, and this run brought back a lot of the super hero fun I’d been missing including Diana Prince! The final showdown with all of her rogues was awesome.

“The Odyssey” (WW #601-614) doesn’t get much love but it’s actually one of my favorite stories and one of the more modern runs I’ve read more than once. I’m very much a traditionalist when it comes to WW (and super heroes) in general, and when the story was first being published I hated it… but I did enjoy Don Kramer’s art. When it was finished, I went back and read it as a complete piece and it worked much better for me the second (and third) time around.

The Legend of Wonder Woman (2016) is my all time favorite WW story. I also really like George Perez’s run and the current Rebirth run.

I really enjoyed Gail Simone’s run. There’s a nice light touch of humor and the best depiction by far of Etta Candy. At one point Diana is forced to enlist the aid of non-Greek deities, so you get a nice selection from other cultures.

Completely with u on Simone. There’s not much, if anything, DC- wise of hers I don’t like, probably even love. BOP, Secret Six, WW etc. love it all.

Wonder Woman year one

My Favorite Wonder Woman
story is by J. Michael
Straczynski, starting with
issue 601. The first arc is
incredible. She is young, alone, with amnesia, possessing only afraction of her powers and
none of her weapons, and
she is being hunted. And she
looks great in pants
