Wonder Woman w/o Powers Pt. 17: Wonder Woman #191
By an overwhelming popular demand we proudly present… Diana Prince as the New Wonder Woman and how and why she got that way.
After the men of Ranagor’s father’s army pull Diana and Ranagor from the moat into which they leapt, Diana witness the reunion of father and son. Later…
It all started… long ago… back when I was a super-being – back when nothing could hurt me, then – I decided – bet let me start at...
For the next six pages, Diana recounts events from Wonder Woman #179 (pp. 7-12 and pp. 13-22.)
Special issue, indeed, as the cover touts. That means a page-by-page, panel-by-panel, reprint of nearly the entire issue of Wonder Woman #179. Interestingly, the art has been recolored and seems more vibrant to me as it's reproduced here.
That leaves very little remaining for the main story. However, four pages are devoted to two other topics.
First is a one-page, four-panel oddity called Marriage a la Mode, which depicts interesting facts about marriage in different countries.
Second is a three-page “biography” of Marie Elizabeth Zakyrzewska, one of the Wonder Women of History. At least this makes a little sense for belonging.
There’s no letters column in this issue; however…
