“Zounds! Who knew the wonders of Wonder Woman’s sadomasochistic complexities? If you only know the TV show, get ready for the ropes and lassoes and chains of the 40’s comics as examined by Noah Berlatsky. Be sure to buy the e-book to see the original images in glorious color!”–Linda Williams “UC Berkeley “

“Engaging and entertaining.”–Sean Kleefeld “FreakSugar “
