Stark, simple, classic. There’s not an ounce of fat on this ad. It’s for an issue of Mike Sekowsky’s classic run on Wonder Woman from the late-1960s. During the story, the Amazons–and, indeed, their Paradise Island home–depart this reality for pastures new, and leave Diana Prince, aka the heroine formally known as Wonder Woman, behind. Cut off completely from her past, Diana was free to follow her mentor, I-Ching, and become a white-clad Emma Peel look alike. It’s great stuff, and has recently been collected.
