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 advisor 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. But when Marston suggested a new character to his employer, he met with skepticism. Gaines finally gave Wonder Woman a chance. In December 1941, Wonder Woman's first adventure appeared in ALL STAR COMICS #8, written by Marston under the pen name Charles Moulton. Marston wrote nearly all the Wonder Woman comic book stories and the syndicated strip until his death in 1947, one week shy of his 54th birthday.

From the Golden Age of Comics, I always loved Fawcett's
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.
Worthwhile.

This edition collects Sensation Comics 49-57 and Wonder Woman 16-18, all published shortly after World War II and written by William Moulton Morrison and his secretary Joye Murchison. Instead of Nazis Wonder Woman fights villains with names like Doctor Toxino and Psycho. The stories are a little silly, but still pure fun with all the adventure and excitement of previous volumes. Wonder Woman travels thru time, visits the planet Pluto, helps a forerunner to Lassie, and protects new super weapons from enemy hands.

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.

Created by William Moulton Marston (Charles Moulton) who also created the lie detector, these fun stories are written during a time when comics were for kids and read for fun. Ignore analytical thinking and continuity for the most part because kids don't care when young enough and they are having fun. This was the the 1940's. It was a different time, a different America. This is not to mean that good morals can't be found in the writing. Of course stereotypes abound, but it was the 40's, after all. This volume encompasses many issues of Sensation comics and a couple of Wonder Woman comics (check above review for the specific issue numbers). The pages are beautifully redone to glossy perfection. Don't spend hundreds or thousands for back issues when it is reprinted here for a lot less! This is a joy to behold. She's a wonder. She's Wonder Woman!
