Introduction by Maggie Thompson! Wonder Woman started her career as the cover feature of Sensation Comics, jumped into co-starring on the covers of Comic Cavalcade with The Flash and Green Lantern, and then got her very own monthly title! She was hot! Here's a massive 774 pages of stories, all in chronological order, from the highly collectible World War II-era tales--58 in all. Co-starring Steve Trevor, Etta Candy, and more bizarre baddies than anyone deserves to be faced with!

In these stories, Wonder Woman protects Man’s World, using her bracelets and lasso of truth to stop injustice. These tales include Wonder Woman’s battle to keep innocents from being drawn into a land of nightmares and sees her sending a gangster to Paradise Island to be reformed, attending a costume party to prevent a murder, meeting "The Winged Maidens from Venus," facing off with The Cheetah, having "The First Battle with Neptunia," finding "Girls Under the Sea" and fighting "The Octopus Plants," and much, much more!

The former editor and publisher ofThe Comics Buyers' Guide, the renowned Maggie Thompson, offers us a detailed rundown of all of WW's powers; tools; weaknesses; allies; and enemies.

And give full credit, while Marston was the creator of Wonder Woman and wrote all the stories up until April, 1945,  beginning with the Spring 1945  Wonder Woman #12,  Joye Murchison and Robert Knaigher took over all the writing chores in these issues. Joye was the secretarial assistant to Martston. As he began battling a polio infection in 1945, she took over this writing chores until he passed away in 1947 of cancer. Knaigher of course was the mainstay editor and writer of DC's war comics titles in the 1950s and 1960s.

We also have some great covers by hands other than Peter, including E.E. Hibbard and Paul Reinman. Also here is the cover and the WW story from the very special Big All-American Comic Book, published in 1944, with a "jam" cover by Sheldon Mayer, Howard Purcell, Joe Kubert, Martin Naydell, Hibbard and Peter.
