- Full Description
In these classic Golden Age adventures, Wonder Woman battles smugglers, spies, Nazis and evildoers of all kinds--including baroness Paula Von Gunther and the fierce villainess Cheetah. In the turbulent era of World War II, Wonder Woman was a superhero like no other, treating even her enemies with compassion while maintaining a not-so-hidden penchant for bondage that was part of every story. She and her friends never lasted more than a few pages without being tied up! Crazy!
Artist Harry Peter was something of a clunky, old school artist and yet his work has an innocence and charm of its own. And for his time, here in the early 1940s, he was one of the better artists in comics. His and Marston's Wonder Woman was always beautiful, capable, dynamic, quick-thinking, never retreating from any challenge be it earthbound crazies or aliens. And Peters could draw it all.
This collects the same material as in the giant Omnibus Editions, but at a more affordable price in softcover. It’s a great era for Wonder Woman, still wartime, lots of crazy enemies that often return, iconic cover art. Written by Marston with uncredited assists from family members and, later, a student who would carry on writing after Marston passed away suddenly.
These read like no other Golden Age Comics. They can reach out on many levels..as female empowerment, as great adventure stories for boys and girls, and as Marston working out his own fantasies. His official marriage to one woman became a threesome as Olive joined them, to raise his children and act as a second undeclared wife. She embraced his notions of strength and even dominance of women, while still mixed in with bondage and submission.
