H.G. Peter cvr/art; 2nd Wonder Woman, 1st cover; origin & 1st app. Wildcat, Mr. Terrific and the Gay Ghost
Highest GradedIt'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 establishing a role model and avatar for millions of 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. Also of note in this issue, Wonder Woman assumes the persona of her alter ego, the helpful nurse, Diana Prince.
Through some sort of miracle, this copy of Sensation #1 managed to come down the ages and end up like new after nearly 80 years of existence, it is the single highest-graded copy, sitting alone on its lofty perch atop the census, and wow, is it a breathtaking sight to see. This is in fact the highest graded original condition first appearance in DC’s "trinity," beating out Superman and Batman for bragging rights, which are well deserved, Wonder Woman has been waiting for a long time to earn her due respect, and since the release of her self-titled film debut, her star has been on the rise with a bullet. With the imminent release of “Wonder Woman 1984” the bidding battle over this lot should be one for the ages. Only the very slightest clue of this book’s vintage is visible on the incredibly clean and bright cover. This is guaranteed to be the star attraction of this auction, no question.
