Wonder Woman Unbound: The Curious History of the World's Most Famous Heroine
Wonder Woman Unbound: The Curious History of the World’s Most Famous Heroine by Tim Hanley
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Originally written as an undergraduate essay, Wonder Woman Unbound, definitely still reads as a college paper. While there are some interesting parts about the history of comic books in North America and the evolution of superheroes, the book could have been improved with editing. There are sections which are repetitious, some of the footnotes are just side jokes that the author thought were cute, and the writing style didn’t hold my attention. I found myself reading faster and faster just to finish.
