Overview

The earliest adventures of Wonder Woman are collected in this new trade paperback graphic novel series, continuing with WONDER WOMAN: THE GOLDEN AGE VOL. 2!

The most famous of all the women who have ever been called a superhero, Wonder Woman exploded into the world of comic books amid the uncertainty and bleak determination of World War II. Fighting for justice and treating even her enemies with firm compassion, Wonder Woman brought not a cape nor a ring nor a personal fortune or hidden clubhouse, but a magic lasso that compelled anyone it held to tell the truth, and bracelets that could not only deflect bullets but prevent Wonder Woman from ever using her superpowers for unchecked destruction.

The earliest stories of the Amazon Warrior are collected here in WONDER WOMAN: THE GOLDEN AGE VOL. 2, featuring the adventures of Wonder Woman as she tackles corruption, oppression and cruelty in the early days of World War II. Collects SENSATION COMICS #15-24, WONDER WOMAN #4-7 and COMIC CAVALCADE #2-5

About the Author

A noted psychologist and the man who perfected the testing system for the lie detector, William Moulton Marston was hired in 1941 as an adviser to All-American Comics publisher M.C. Gaines after he wrote an article praising the educational potential of comic books in the magazine THE FAMILY CIRCLE. In December 1941, Wonder Woman's first adventure appeared in ALL STAR COMICS #8, written by Marston under the pen name Charles Moulton. For four years Marston wrote nearly all his creation's adventures, including both comic books and a syndicated newspaper strip. In 1945, suffering from the effects of a polio infection, he began to turn over the feature's scripting duties to others, particularly his assistant, Joye Murchison. Marston died in 1947, just a week shy of his 54th birthday.
