origin Wonder Woman; Marston story, H.G. Peter cvr/art
CGC VF-: 7.5
William Moulton Marston's complex comic creation was a vital addition to the superhero pantheon, a fearless feminist icon, equal parts warrior, diplomat, fetish object, and symbol of empowerment. Wonder Woman is one of the few Golden Age creations whose style and format were dead-on from the start, resulting in a nearly unbroken run of quality throughout the WWII-era.

After her auspicious debut in All-Star Comics 8, Wonder Woman grabbed her own cover and comic with Sensation Comics, her long running title that proved to be such a success DC comics introduced Wonder Woman 1 in the summer of 1942. This issue contains four tales of groundbreaking Golden Age heroine-ism, the first of which re-tells the character's origin story and her introduction to love interest Steve Trevor.

Higher-grade unrestored copies of this key are especially tough to obtain, as so many mid-grade copies were touched up during the pre-slabbing days. Finding a higher-grade untouched WW1 in nice shape is quite a catch, and the crisp yellows and sharp blacks on this copy are sure to please even the pickiest of Golden Age experts.
