H.G. Peter cvr/art; 2nd Wonder Woman, 1st cover; origin & 1st app. Wildcat, Mr. Terrific and the Gay GhostIt'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.
This copy has the visual appeal of a higher grade, with split interior pages playing a role in the G+ designation, but, as can be witnessed by one quick gander at this cover, it is in a remarkable state of preservation. There is a clean white background, bold red and yellow wash, and subtler muted tones that read exceptionally well making this an incredibly attractive copy which will be available for a hammer price that should make it the focus of intense bidding.
Overstreet Guide 2020 G+ (2.5) value = $12,375.
