    Wonder Woman #1 Davis Crippen ("D" Copy) pedigree (DC, 1942) CGC FN+ 6.5 Off-white to white pages. Ranked among the 30 most valuable comics by Overstreet, this first issue of Wonder Woman's own title came out just half a year or so after her debut in All Star Comics #8 (she had appeared in Sensation Comics in the meantime). And this new series would last for four decades. Wonder Woman has been called "the only mythological character to flourish in the comics format," and we can't think of another to do so until Thor appeared some two decades later. Wonder Woman's early adventures, written by William Moulton Marston and drawn by H. G. Peter, still fascinate today. As you might expect from a #1 issue, the heroine's origin story is retold and expanded upon here. Overstreet 2006 FN 6.0 value = $6,834; VF 8.0 value = $17,000. CGC census 6/06: 1 in 6.5, 12 higher. From the Crippen Collection.
