    I voted for these:

    1. JLA: A League of One

    2. "The Last True Hero": WW vol 2, #75

    3. Eyes of the Gorgon (Greg Rucka)

    4. "Return to Paradise Island/The Last Battle": WW vol 1, #183-184

    5. War (Brian Azzarello)

    6. Challenge of the Gods (George Perez - his second storyline)

    7. The Circle (Gail Simone)

    8. "The Mystery of the Atom World": WW vol 1, #21

    9. "Her Mother's Daughter": WW vol 2, #172

    10. "Paradise Burning": WW vol 1, #318

    I'm a little surprised to see "Rise of the Olympian" on the list - I haven't read it in a long time, but I tend to think of anything related to Simone's Achilles as ghastly - but I'm sure some of mine are head-scratching to others.

    I got a lot of crap to read it seems. I got 75 Years of WW and feel the collection of stories isn't all that great...

    I'm waiting to see if WONDER WOMAN '77 MEETS THE BIONIC WOMAN makes the list anywhere.

    Many diehard fans — and reviewers — have been praising it as being one of the best Wonder Woman stories in a long, long time...

    I wonder if any of Kanigher's work will be listed. His work is better than most Post-Crisis material.
    Also visit my blog where I expose Wonder Woman for the criminal she is!

    How come these anonymous sources failed to report Zack Snyder had left post-production on Justice League? They seem to know everything now...

    Isn't Kanigher the one who made Steve a complete ass-hat that Diana still followed around like a love-struck puppy?

    If ten years of recording The Young and the Restless for my mother have taught me anything, it's that characters in serial dramas are always happily in love...until they're not

    Any story he wrote with Steve Trevor is generally intolerable, however he worked on Wonder Woman for 21+ years so even if he only produced one good story a year, his catalogue of good work is superior to most modern authors. His Wondergirl stories are particularly delightful.

    Bob Kanigher was writing Wonder Woman right after Marston's death, so a lot of those earlier stories are not very different from Marston's work. Some Kanigher stories were even selected for Gloiria Steinem's Ms. collection of WONDER WOMAN (1972) as examples of excellence.

    Loading the CBR pages is always a chore for my devices and I run short of patience before I can see all the stories selected.

    I hope at least one of the Mike Sekowsky Diana Prince stories was selected. The most likely candidate being "THEM" WONDER WOMAN No. 185 (November-December '69)--it's a story that attracts a lot of attention, so maybe it has a chance of breaking through all the negative opiinion regarding the powered down Wonder Woman. Sekowsky did some brillaint stories and this one is so strange that it's hard to ignore--plus the pairing of Sekowsky and Dick Giordano on the art is really good.
