    Sensation Comics #1 (DC, 1942) CGC VF+ 8.5 Off-white pages. This key comic is listed among the 30 most valuable comics by Overstreet, and our copy is one of the best you'll find. It's the second appearance of the number one superheroine in comics, Wonder Woman, in an issue released just one month after she was first seen in All Star Comics #8. Also making their debuts were two other DC heroes of note, neither of whom had super powers but both of whom packed a punch: Mr. Terrific and Wildcat. H. G. Peter drew the Wonder Woman story; the issue's other artists include Sheldon Moldoff, Irwin Hasen, and Howard Purcell. The number of existing copies of this issue is "less than average" according to Gerber. Coupled with Wonder Woman's ever-increasing popularity, that means this book will only become more sought-after with the passage of time. Overstreet 2005 VF 8.0 value = $19,400; VF/NM 9.0 value = $31,700. CGC census 2/05: 2 in 8.5, 2 higher.
