    Description

    All Star Comics #8 Married Cover (DC, 1942) CGC Qualified GD- 1.8 Off-white pages. So, you want to talk about HOT books? OK, let's talk about the origin and first appearance of Wonder Woman! With her new, hit feature film, starring Gal Gadot as the fearless Amazon, all things WW are ripe for the picking! In this super-important issue, Wonder Woman wasn't even mentioned in the JSA story, let alone on the cover, supporting the theory held by some that the story was originally intended for Sensation Comics #1 (in which this origin story is continued) and was added here (as nine additional pages, making this issue 76 pages) at the last minute. Starman and Dr. Mid-Nite joined the JSA in this same issue, the Green Lantern was made an honorary member, and Dr. Fate dons a new helmet. Currently issue #8 is tied for the #15 position on Overstreet's list of Top 100 Golden Age Comics. CGC notes, "Married Cover. (Cover detached. Tape on interior cover.)". Overstreet 2017 GD 2.0 value = $15,000.
