Marvel Family. From Quality, I drooled over
the superbly drawn BLACKHAWK/PLASTIC MAN/DOLL MAN. But where
DC-Superman Comics was concerned, my only fave was Wonder Woman.
Happily, DC's just pub'd the seventh volume of its WONDER WOMAN
ARCHIVES, reprinting postwar stories from SENSATION (49-57) and
WONDER WOMAN (16-18), with an informative Intro by Ivan Cohen.
Glowing covers. Brilliant color dazzles throughout. H.G. Peter's
thick-lined artwork almost leaps out of each
panel. Quirky stories written by Robert Kanigher, William
Moulton Marston, and "Joye Murchison" (writer-secretary).
Tales of crime and time-travel.
Etta Candy nearly gets shot; dense Steve Trevor is tossed out
of a skyscraper window. Wonder Woman battles con men and psychotics;
tosses buffalo around like juggling pins in the Old West;
fights King Pluto of the Dark Planet; and shares the stage with a
talented dog - all without mussing a strand of her blue-black hair.
I still love the invisible (?) Amazon Plane. I still marvel at the
strength of Wonder Woman's mouth grip whenever she's tied up. I still thrill
to Doctor Toxino and "The Bughuman Plague". It's an interesting period,
as our braceleted heroine evolves toward an uncertain publishing
future. Kudos to DC for letting us see these historic (?) tales again.
The highlight of the volume is a three part story where King Pluto comes to Earth to kidnap women and then separates a glowing color body from their physical body to light up his castle. Wonder Woman and the Holiday Girls travel to the furthest planet from the sun and do battle to rescue his captives.
H.G. Peter's artwork is brilliant as always. For anyone who enjoys reading comics for fun or is into fantastic adventures, this volume is for you. The only real disappointment is the paper isn't as nice as was used in previous volumes, but the artwork still reproduces beautifully.
