- Full Description
Wonder Woman, arguably the best-known female superhero in the world, was introduced in the early 1940s in these quirky tales written by the inventor of the lie detector, psychologist William Moulton Marston. In these stories, Wonder Woman travels from Paradise Island to Man’s World, where she battles both common criminals and supervillains like Cheetah and her first nemesis, the Baroness Von Gunther. Her magic bracelets and lasso of truth stop injustice, but usually not before she is tied up again and again, one of Marston's favorite foils.
These stories introduce the mythology of Wonder Woman as she battles the powers of evil—from crooked business owners to Nazi spies. The stories are fun and different, not falling into the typical cliches of many of the Golden Age heroes. Marston's undeclared wife, and later a female assistant, wrote many of these stories and they have a woman's viewpoint, to be honest, rarely seen in other comics.
They have a charm and naiveté that is fun. With the success of the 2017 movie, interest in her original comic books has exploded. Issues all the way into the 1960s are selling for multiples of Guide. Here, for the price of just one later issue, is part two of her complete oeuvre, 16 issues covering roughly 60 complete adventures!
Many of these covers are now icons of the time, such as "Wonder Woman for President" and seasonal images of Christmas and Thanksgiving, as well as her co-appearances in Comics Cavalcade with Green Lantern and The Flash.
This and volume one collect the entirety of the Wonder Woman Omnibus Volume 1, which remains available at $75, your price $65.
Join Wonder Woman as she tackles corruption, oppression and cruelty in the early days of World War II.
