Along those same lines, might I recommend a comic collection called Wonder
Woman: The Circle. At its core, the circle is about the immortal Amazons
and their desire for children, which manifests in the creation/miracle of
Diana, Wonder Woman, but also what not being able to have children does to
some of the other Amazons.
It's a compassionate story, based on complicated female relationships.
