ALL STAR COMICS #8
CGC VG+: 4.5
DC's Big Three were blessed with auspicious beginnings. All Star Comics #8 did for Wonder Woman what Action #1 and Detective #27 did for Superman and Batman. America's Guardian Angel was an instant hit who served as a graphic representative of the women's war effort during WWII, predating Rosie the Riveter by two years. The daughter of Hippolyta rescued fighter pilot Steve Trevor, whose pursuit of a Nazi spy ended with his crash landing on Paradise Island. Men were forbidden on the island, but, in divining his past, Hippolyta recognized that he was a hero worthy of sacrifice. The Amazons decided to aid the war effort and defeat the evil Nazis and Diana was ultimately chosen for the assignment. The upside potential of this issue cannot be stressed enough. Wonder Woman's overdue solo film received critical acclamations and birthed a whole new generation of fans and feminists alike. Click here to view the interior page of the first appearance!
Don't let the 4.5 grade fool you, this unrestored copy has rich colors and a bold look that captures both the intrigue and antiquity of such a remarkable piece of history. This book is an essential key to DC's Big Three and a rare find for the lucky collector.
