    Description

    All Star Comics #8 (DC, 1942) CGC Apparent VF/NM 9.0 Moderate (P) Cream to off-white pages. This is the first appearance of Wonder Woman, and this professionally restored copy bears the highest numerical grade of any we have offered to date. The issue is currently #22 on Overstreet's list of the top 100 Golden Age books. Wonder Woman isn't on the cover, nor does she appear in the Justice Society story, rather her debut story is included at the end of the book. The prevailing theory is that the Amazon was originally supposed to debut in Sensation Comics #1 and was a last-minute addition here to encourage readers of this established title to seek out the new series. The first part of Wonder Woman's origin is told in this story. We mustn't forget the Justice Society -- this early outing for the group has Dr. Mid-Nite and Starman being inducted as members. CGC notes, "Restoration includes: color touch, pieces added, tear seals, cleaned, reinforced." Overstreet 2008 GD 2.0 value = $3,150; VG 4.0 value = $6,300; FN 6.0 value = $9,450; VF 8.0 value = $23,600; VF/NM 9.0 value = $41,800; NM- 9.2 value = $60,000. From the Kylberg Collection.
