Reprinted for the first time, the complete newspaper comics featuring the adventures of the world's most famous female superhero, written and drawn by her creators!

Just a few years after she burst into comic books, Wonder Woman was a sensation. Beginning in May 1944, she began appearing in her own daily newspaper strip, written by her creator, William Moulton Marston, and drawn by original artist Harry G. Peters. The strip lasted just over a year and a half.

It all starts on Paradise Island, where a tribe of immortal warrior women rule supreme and no men are allowed. Led by Queen Hippolyte and her daughter, Princess Diana, the Amazons will have their way of life changed forever when Steve Trevor, a wounded American soldier, washes up on their shores. Soon, Diana--rechristened Wonder Woman--is off to America in her invisible plane, armed with her lasso of truth, magic bracelets, and boundless love for all people. In man's world, she'll face enemies like the animalistic Cheetah, the subterranean Mole Men, and the man-killing Glamora, as well as the horrors of the Second World War.

Telling new stories, as well as adapting crucial plots from the comics, the Wonder Woman daily strip introduced the Amazon Princess to her broadest audience yet, making her a househould name. Since then, she's starred in comics, television shows, video games, and finally, in 2017, a major motion picture by Patty Jenkins, which recieved critical acclaim and broke the record for biggest opening weekend ever for a movie directed by a woman.

Wonder Woman: The Complete Newspaper Comics is a must-read for comics and pop-culture fans, as well as students of women's history and gender studies, where the character has had an indelible influence and continues to make an impact today.

An unusual take on the character. Early on after her creation, William Marston and H.G. Peters were adapting the adventures of Wonder Woman for the daily newspapers as well. While it's an experiment that didn't last long, and it does feel dated, seeing the work of the original creative team is well worthwhile.
