Diana’s the main character, but we wanted to give a little bit of service to all the stuff that actually happened in the original myth,” he continued. “Heracles captured the Amazons and subjected them to all kinds of tortures, so the first 15 pages of our book deal with that. It’s just a big old ladies-kick-ass thing. Having read my feminist literature, I wanted to come up with the most outrageous image of the battle of the sexes to open this book, and when you see Hercules basically gloating over Hippolyta, who’s down on her knees in the mud and in chains, that’s what we wanted to do, and we work up from there, through all these different ways of looking at women – both in comics and in society. I wanted this one to be good. I want it to be something different from every other superhero book I’ve done. It’s not like a superhero comic. It’s a comic about the sexes and how we feel about one another, and how Wonder Woman represents the best of something, and should be allowed to represent it and also represent a creator’s interest, shall we say?
