    Description

    Wonder Woman #1 (DC, 1942) CGC VG/FN 5.0 Off-white to white pages. This first issue of Wonder Woman's own title came out just about six months after her debut in All Star Comics #8 (she had appeared in Sensation Comics in the meantime). An instant hit, she outgrew the confines of Sensation after just a few months. This issue started a four-decade run for the character, who is still considered one of DC's "Big Three" seven decades later, joining Superman and Batman as the only superheroes who were in continuous publication through the superhero recession of the early 1950s. WW #1 is currently ranked #37 on Overstreet's Top 100 Golden Age Comics list, and this much-in-demand premiere issue is seldom found in mid- or high-grade. The cover and interior art are by H. G. Peter. CGC notes, "Very small amount of dried glue on spine of cover." Overstreet 2015 VG 4.0 value = $7,000; FN 6.0 value = $10,500. CGC census 5/16: 6 in 5.0, 32 higher.
