Wonder Woman Is Back On The Cover Of Ms. Magazine!!

It’s Ms. magazine’s 40th anniversary this year, and in celebration they’ve put Wonder Woman back on the cover for their special anniversary issue.  The cover is by Mike Allred, now pretty famous outside of comics for doing the art for the Wonder Woman MAC cosmetics campaign last year.  The cover may or may not be coloured by Laura Allred.  They usually work together, but the cover doesn’t specify.

This is a fantastic cover!!  I love the tie-in to the current war on women and the need to vote in the upcoming election.  Having a lady in a “This is what a feminist looks like” t-shirt is really fun too.  And, of course, the cover is an homage to the very first Ms. cover from 1972:

That issue also included some actual Wonder Woman comics, a few pages of her origin story from All-Star Comics #8.  I wonder if we’ll get something similar this time?  A few pages of Mike Allred doing a Wonder Woman comic would be really fun.

Apparently, if you sign up for a subscription you get the issue AND a poster, which is awesome.  It seems to only be available in the US though.  Boooooooooo.  If anyone wants to send me a poster, I’ll be your pal forever.

Anyway, Wonder Woman is back on the cover of Ms.!!  That’s very fun.  Look for the issue on newsstands soon, and pick it up.  It looks like a good one!!
