DC To Collect Trina Robbins And Kurt Busiek’s Legends Of Wonder Woman, As Amazon Snubs Robbins

Posted by November 20, 2017 Comment

In February, DC is publishing a new trade paperback called Wonder Woman: Forgotten Legends, which collects, amongst other things, the 4 issue Legends of Wonder Woman comic from Trina Robbins and Kurt Busiek. The collection includes a story from 1989’s Wonder Woman Annual #2, Play Like, by Robbins and Lee Marrs, and Wonder Woman #318 by Busiek, Irv Novick, and Rick Magyar.

Tales of Wonder Woman in the style of the Golden Age of Comics by Trina Robbins and Kurt Busiek are collected at last! In these stories from the 1980s, Paradise Island is threatened by a mysterious Amazon known as Atomia! This title collects THE LEGEND OF WONDER WOMAN #1-4, WONDER WOMAN #318 and a story from WONDER WOMAN ANNUAL #2.
On sale MARCH 21 • 128 pg, FC, $16.99 US • ISBN: 978-1-4012-7795-6

The lineup makes sense for a Busiek and Robbins centric book. However, Robbins, who was the first woman to draw Wonder Woman, and, more importantly, the inaugural inductee in the Wizard World Hall of Legends, is unfortunately snubbed in Amazon’s listing for Wonder Woman: Forgotten Legends. That solicit reads a little bit differently than the one DC released today, naming only Kurt Busiek:

From comics legend Kurt Busiek, Wonder Woman’s classic adventures are collected in WONDER WOMAN: FORGOTTEN LEGENDS.

Preparing to depart Paradise Island forever, Queen Hippolyta learns an untold tale of the legendary Amazon–the return of Atomia! Then Wonder Woman is transported to the 63rd century to save the Amazons from a race of pig-men who have inhabited their island, and from their abandonment of Aphrodite’s ways. With surprise appearances by Batman, Black Canary, Changeling and Darkseid!

Collects THE LEGEND OF WONDER WOMAN #1-4 (1986), WONDER WOMAN #318, WONDER WOMAN ANNUAL #2, WONDER WOMAN GALLERY #1.

We’re sure that’s a situation they’ll rectify soon. As you can see, Amazon also advertises the collection as including Wonder Woman Gallery #1, which is a pinup book produced in 1996. Here’s a sample from there:

Look for this in stores on March 21.
