When Steve Trevor, her long-time romantic interest, is kidnapped, Wonder Woman must go undercover as a regular human woman to rescue him. But when her sister Amazons retreat to another dimension, her cover identity becomes her whole life, as Diana Prince is stripped of her powers, weapons and wealth, and forced to retrain and refocus herself in order to survive...

Volume 1 of Diana Prince features stories, that have never been collected before, from issues #178 to 184 of Wonder Woman and Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane #93.

As beautiful as Aphrodite, wise as Athena, swifter than Mercury and stronger than Hercules. As Wonder Woman, Diana the Amazon Princess fought crime and evil with these gifts of strength and wisdom given by the Greek gods themselves. And then one day, it all went away.

After 10,000 years on Earth, the Amazons' mythic home of Paradise Island was drained of its magic and needed to retreat to another dimension to rejuvenate, but how can Diana abandon this world when Steve Trevor, the man she loves, is missing and wanted for murder?

To save him, Diana is willing to forfeit her great powers and her Amazon heritage. Now, with a mysterious blind teacher of martial arts at her side, Diana Prince embarks on the hunt for Steve Trevor... a hunt that will end in tragedy.

Through her familiar weapons and powers are gone, Diana proves at long last that even without her powers, she is a heroine born... a true Wonder Woman.

This collection will only really be of interest to serious Wonder Woman fans. This really is a product of it's time - originally published in comic book form in the late '60s. Unsurprisingly the artwork is fairly basic, and aspects of the script have not dated very well. One for diehard fans only.
