H.G. Peter cvr/art; 2nd Wonder Woman, 1st cover; origin & 1st app. Wildcat, Mr. Terrific and the Gay Ghost
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 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.

One of two copies in this auction, this Sensation #1 has some wonderful clean whites and bright reds and yellows on its iconic cover. Prices on this comic have been on the rise ever since Gal Gadot wielded her golden lasso as the Amazonian Princess in the DCEU. At one point an underrated key, that has changed drastically, this comic is certainly one of the recommended investments in this auction, as the popularity of Wonder Woman continues to rise. For those of you out there looking for a copy of this book and are not planning to take part in the heavyweight bout for the highest graded copy, also featured in this auction, then here is a very attractive mid-grade example that will also undoubtedly see its share of action in our second Event Auction of the year.
