H.G. Peter cover/art; 2nd Wonder Woman, 1st cover; origin & 1st app Wildcat, Mr. Terrific and the Gay Ghost
It's not the first appearance of Wonder Woman, but it's the most famous WW issue there is. It is her first cover appearance as well, an undeniably big moment in comics history. William Moulton Marston's revolutionary and cagily subversive heroine explodes onto the Golden Age comics scene, thereby officially establishing the "trinity" of DC's hero stable, while promoting a role model and avatar for millions of girls and women all over the world. This classic cover debuts H.G. Peter's trademark style, which combines the crude grace of ancient Greek artists with the flowering majesty of storybook illustration. This strip looked and felt like nothing else before or since, a true milestone in comics history. Also of note in this issue, Wonder Woman assumes the persona of her alter ego, the helpful nurse, Diana Prince.

Wonder Woman was quickly given her feature anthology after her debut in All Star Comics #8, making Sensation Comics #1 her first cover appearance and an important key in DC’s Golden Age. There are just over 100 copies of this issue on the CGC census making the book a very rare commodity, with fandom for the Amazonian heroine on the rise in the modern era, the sky's the limit for this important publication. This 6.0 copy is structurally sound, and although it bears a few telltale signs of its vintage, the overall condition is quite impressive, considering its 80 years of existence. It has recently been confirmed that James Gunn will be rebooting the WW franchise, which will no doubt drive the value and demand for this comic further into the stratosphere. A 6.0 copy of Sensation Comics #1 sold for $86,250 in June 2022.

Overstreet Guide 2022 FN (6.0) value = $38,700.
