Highest Graded
Though, not the first appearance of Wonder Woman in a comic, this book presents her first cover appearance and feature story -- an undeniably big moment in comics history for an undeniably major collectible. The story therein combines sex appeal, feminism, patriotism, romance, magic, and incredible powers to launch the world's first enduring superheroine. Sensation #1 features the Amazon princess in action against Nazi spies while simultaneously rescuing the wounded fighter pilot, Steve Trevor. Also of note in this issue, Wonder Woman assumes the persona of her alter ego, the helpful nurse, Diana Prince.


It's not the first appearance of Wonder Woman, but it's the most famous WW issue there is, and it's her first cover appearance as well -- an undeniably big moment in comics history, as 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, and giving a role model and avatar for millions of little 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, and is a milestone in comics history.
