origin and 1st app of Wonder Woman; one of the scarcest major Golden Age keys! Comic Book Impact rating of 10 (CBI)


Wonder Woman's first appearance didn't rate a place on the cover of All Star Comics #8. The amazing Amazon was still an instant hit with the kids who discovered her debut on page 19 of this classic book. William Marston's tale of Princess Diana (illustrated by H.G. Peter) revealed the origin of Diana's powers after she saves a brave pilot shot down over Paradise Island. She later competes for the chance to return Capt. Steve Trevor to the USA. "In America," her mother explains, "you'll indeed be a Wonder Woman."

In fact, Diana would settle down in the U.S. as one of the comic industry's most beloved characters — predating Rosie the Riveter as the face of the women's war effort by two years. This issue remains one of the most desirable Golden Age comics, with the recent success of Gal Gadot's turn as the big-screen Wonder Woman leaving a new generation anxious for the character's next incarnation in the DC Extended Universe.

As for that cover: Starman and Dr. Mid-Nite join the Justice Society of America. Hooty the Owl becomes the JSA's official mascot. Dr. Fate still has that half-mask he started wearing in More Fun Comics #72. Also, Hawkman's pet hawk can talk.

Wonder Woman may not have made the cover of All Star #8, but this 5.5 copy has rich colors that preserve the depth of E.E. Hibbard's impressive art featuring an (all-male) array of Golden Age heroes.
