Wonder Woman Weekend...

So you just saw the Wonder Woman movie and you're looking to find out more about everyone's favorite Amazing Amazon. Or maybe you want to beef up on Amazonian history before you get to the theater. Or perhaps you've stumbled onto my website because you were looking up the Matthew Manning who is a spiritual healer, and you're really confused about why he's going on and on about Wonder Woman.

No matter which one of the above categories you fall into (and let's be honest, most of you are from the last one), I've got plenty of Wonder Woman books and comics to get you up to date on the legendary Diana of Themyscira.

For those interested in the modern New 52 version of Wonder Woman, be sure to check out The World According to Wonder Woman, my book for Insight Editions. Illustrated by Paul Bulman, the book gives a little insight (pun very much intended) into Wonder Woman's thoughts on everything from working with partners to how to throw a good left hook.

And if it's advice you're after, you might want to read The Wonder Woman Way, a tiny little book I wrote that accompanies a talking bust in this great set. The Wonder Woman figurine says real quotes from the comics, while the book gives you the kind of sage advice that only an Amazon could give (or a 38-year-old man doing his best impression of an Amazon. Same thing.).

Now that you brought up gift book sets (thanks for that, by the way), I also wrote Wonder Woman: The Amazing Amazon, another tiny little book in a boxed set. This one tells a bit of the character's history and an overview of her world, the book packaged with a Wonder Woman Tiara Bracelet.

If it's history you're looking for, I also ghost wrote the first chapter about the life of Wonder Woman's creator, William Moulton Marston in the nice fat coffee table book entitled Wonder Woman: Amazon Hero Icon, otherwise written by fellow comic book historian Robert Greenberger.

If you have young Wonder Woman fans in the house, be sure to snag my chapter book Wonder Woman Wrestles Circe's Sorcery.

Saved for last is my favorite work starring Diana, a comic book collaboration with artist Georges Jeanty from Sensation Comics. In it, Wonder Woman squares off with a monstrous threat thanks to the machinations of her friend and fellow Justice Leaguer, Batman. You can download the digital version of the comic here. It'll only set you back a buck.

Happy reading, and enjoy your Wonder Woman weekend! I can already hear the bracelets clanging from here.
