origin and 1st app. Wonder Woman; one of the scarcest major Golden Age keys!
Highest GradedDC'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 representation 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 to defeat the vile Nazis with the lovely Diana ultimately chosen for the assignment. The upside potential of this issue cannot be stressed enough. Wonder Woman's overdue solo film received critical acclamation and birthed a whole new generation of fans and feminists alike, the much anticipated sequel "Wonder Woman 1984" is scheduled for a 2020 release.

It seems nearly impossible that after close to 80 years of existence an unrestored comic can look as good as this copy of All Star #8 looks. Standing alone at the top of the census, this highest graded copy is QES-certified and has an eye appeal that will knock your socks off. It is not often we see a Golden Age book in such a state of preservation, let alone an important key such as this one. After all the Detective 27s and Action 1s we have had the honor to bring to market, it is particularly satisfying to be able to offer this incredible piece of comic book history to our clientele. We expect a record-breaking hammer price and vicious competition over the finest copy of All Star #8. With Wonder Woman’s stock consistently rising this issue is poised to join the ranks of the origins of her male companions in DC’s Trinity of heroes in prestige and value.
