    H. G. Peter Wonder Woman Unpublished Partial Page 5-B Original Art (DC, 1948/1971). A page with a story! Created by Wonder Woman's original artist, H. G. Peter in 1938 for the story "The Stormy Menace of Goblin Head Rock" which was slated for Wonder Woman #31 (but unused), the story went unpublished until 1971's Wonder Woman #196. Even though that was the first publishing of the story, it did not include this alternate version of Page 5. So this section is still unpublished at this time. The way the page was cut between the tiers makes us think this was one of the many inventory stories that were nearly destroyed in the 1960s when DC offices were attempting to make some space. Fast thinking interns (including Marv Wolfman) followed the letter of their instructions ("cut up the art and put it in the trash") but not the intention. They cut carefully between tiers, then returned later to the trash bin to retrieve the art sections. This act allowed DC to recover the art and actually publish many of these stories in the 1970s. This page section is created in ink over graphite on two strips of Bristol board with a conjoined image area of 13" x 12". Great images of Etta Candy and the Holliday Girls in marching band costumes. Overall in Very Good condition.
