Ed#537 Wonder Woman

All the world’s been waiting for her…and she is finally here! It’s taken 75 years, and now Wonder Woman will be saving the world on the big screen from 2 June. In this edition, we explore the Amazonian legend that is Wonder Woman and why she’s a hero for our times. We also speak to the Australian artist who illustrates Wonder Woman comics for a living; and talk to the new Wonder Woman, actor Gal Gadot, on taking on the role of a lifetime.

And in Big Picture, a photographer discovers the hidden magic of the Nullarbor Plain.
