origin and 1st app of Wonder Woman; one of the scarcest major Golden Age keys! Comic Book Impact rating of 10 (CBI)
Highest Graded
Wonder Woman was an instant hit who served as a graphic representation of the women's war effort during WWII, predating Rosie the Riveter by two years. All Star Comics #8 contains the very first appearance of Wonder Woman. Although she is not shown on the cover, this issue remains one of the most desirable Golden Age comics thanks to the game-changing debut of one of the first female superheroes. The upside potential for this issue cannot be stressed enough. Wonder Woman's overdue solo film received critical acclaim and birthed a whole new generation of fans, and a reboot of the franchise is currently rumored for the retooled James Gunn DCU which will certainly draw renewed interest to this already incredibly valuable and hard-to-find book.

This isn't merely one of the most historically significant comics ever printed, it's also one of the two highest-graded copies on the planet!

This is the 1st time a 9.0 has ever gone to public auction!!!

Tied merely with 1 other copy, both containing off-white pages. The only other All Star 8 9.0 is locked deep in a private collection, the buyer has no intent to ever sell. This is one of the scarcest of major Golden Age keys, the upside potential of this issue cannot be stressed enough. With Wonder Woman making her latest film appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, due for release this March, and her own film slotted for June 2017, she's poised to inspire a whole new generation of warrior princesses.

Overstreet Guide 2015 VF/NM (9.0) value = $95,000.
