Marston story, H.G. Peter cvr/art; origin Wonder Woman retold
Highest Graded
Wonder Woman was a vital addition to the superhero pantheon as William Moulton Marston's complex comic concept was 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 earned her own book with Sensation Comics, the title that proved to be such a break-out success that DC introduced Wonder Woman #1 in the summer of 1942. This issue contains four tales of groundbreaking heroism, the first of which re-tells the character's origin story. There's been plenty of debate over the quality of some of the recent additions to the DCEU, but even the most cynical of hearts agree that Gal Gadot's portrayal of Wonder Woman was a knockout, and upcoming sequels will further serve to drive the value of this book. Early Wonder Woman comics are still heavily undervalued in our humble estimation which means that there is loads of headroom for these books to shoot up in value.
Tied for the second highest-graded on the CGC census, this is a doubly desirable example of this red-hot key. Graced with bright yellows and deep black inks, this copy is very attractive. Wonder Woman issues have been commanding record-high values in recent auctions -- we expect big things for this one as well.ÿý
