Product Description

About the Author

A noted psychologist who perfected the testing system for the lie detector, William Moulton Marston was hired in 1941 as an advisor to All American Comics publisher M.C. Gaines. In December 1941, Wonder Woman's first adventure appeared in ALL STAR COMICS #8, written by Marston under the pen name Charles Moulton. An early feminist, Marston believed that woman's rightful place was as world leader, not servant or helpmate. Marston wrote nearly all the Wonder Woman comic book stories and the syndicated strip until his death in 1947.Much of the success of Wonder Woman can be attributed to the unique style of Harry G. Peter, whose stark and simple illustrations were unlike anything else seen during comics' early days. Born a generation earlier than most of his Golden Age colleagues, Peter was strongly influenced by the classic illustrators of the nineteenth century, and his technique reflected their elaborate line work. He drew nearly every story of the Amazing Amazon from the feature's debut until his death in 1958.

HASH(0x9a79c810) out of 5 stars No one did it better than the creator. 28 Dec. 2012
By Linda Mercury - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
These volumes contain the original Wonder Woman from the 1940s in all their outrageous, over the top fun. Unlike many modern interpretations of Wonder Woman, this WW finds bullets and bracelets fun, enjoys out-swimming a submarine, and radiates a fabulous joy about life.

Note: As is typical with literature from the era, there are uncomfortable racial and national stereotypes throughout the volume. Read when you are in a good place for dealing with that.

HASH(0x9b6d72b8) out of 5 stars The Best Volume Yet 22 Feb. 2014
By Adam Graham, Superhero and Detective Fiction Author - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book collects Wonder Woman Stories from Sensation Comics #15-#18, Wonder Woman Issues #4 and 5, and Comics Cavlacade #2.

Most but not all of Wonder Woman's Adventures tie into the war, but William Moulston Marston manages to do it with aplumb as Wonder Woman's efforts lead her to have to battle Japanese scientists who have developed a formula to turn women against their men in hopes of starting a male-female civil war. She also has to uncover the secret of a talking lion to foil some spies. In addition, in the highlight of the book from the Comic Cavalcade story, Adolf Hitler decides Wonder Woman is too dangerous and declares her Wanted: Dead or Alive. Whlle many heroes hunted Nazis, it was certainly a special case for the Nazis to hunt down the heroine.

The full issues were generally good with each story building on each other. Issue 4 once again featured four interlinked stories, this time focusing on the reform of Paula, the former Wonder Woman archfoe who becomes a full fledged free Amazonian. Issue 5 only the first and last stories were interlinked as war time paper shortages began to limit issue lengths.

On the non-War front, Wonder Woman battled the Mole Men in Wonder Woman #4, and in Issue #5 she took on Dr. Psycho, a powerful mind controlling super villain which was actually one of the better golden age villains.

The book is extremely well written, but again something kids should be cautious about as Marston's own kinks and beliefs come into play as well as a dose of Greek religion.

HASH(0x9b6e2d50) out of 5 stars This Wonder Woman has never been topped 29 Sept. 2015
By P. Ryan Anthony - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
"The world's turned upside down--or is it only me?" asks Wonder Woman at one point, and the reader may wonder as well. Creator William Moulton Marston's stories are loony little masterpieces from another world. Etta Candy gets engaged (Woo Woo!), but nothing's ever as it seems when the Amazon Princess is involved. Would you believe a law firm with the upstanding name Slikery, Smelt, and Slikery is in the employ of the Axis? Will the divine Diana really leap to Mars on a kangaroo? Can she defeat her new arch enemy, the diminutive but big-headed Doctor Psycho? WW also takes on black-marketeers, mole men, and...a talking lion?! Harry G. Peter and Frank Godwin draw some terrific, cartoony battle scenes in a charming, old-fashioned style, and, of course, there's bondage in every tale. Watch for blink-and-you-miss-them cameos by Marston and Peter in an April Fool's story. All this mayhem was wrangled by editor Sheldon Mayer, a great comics creator in his own right, who knew just how far to let the unbridled passions of his bondage-loving, women's libber writer go. Get this collection and witness Wonder Woman in her heyday. It's a riot!

I'm a big Wonder Woman fan. I've read a few of the Golden Age WW stories over the years, but with DC reprinting the series in color in the Chronicles line, I knew I would have to collect this particular series. If you want to see how WW started out, pick up this series.

HASH(0x9b0e42f4) out of 5 stars it's okay 11 July 2013
By William Jackson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When I was a kid I bought a few WONDER WOMAN comics, usually because it had a striking cover, but it was never one
of my favorites. i know WONDER WOMAN is famous, the best known female superheroine in the history of comics.
Can anyone really remember a WONDER WOMAN story? I can remember FLASH, GREEN LANTERN, FANTASTIC
FOUR, SPIDERMAN. ADAM STRANGE stories but no WONDER WOMAN stories. I think what made WONDER
WOMAN so famous was her costume---no other female has a better costume than her----personal opinion.
I bought this collection to see if the " Golden Age " WONDER WOMAN was any better than the WONDER WOMAN
i was familiar with---well she wasn't. I was disappointed, but maybe you won't be.
