Meet the Author

A noted psychologist who perfected the testing system for the lie detector, William Moulton Marston was hired in 1941 as an advisor to All American Comics publisher M.C. Gaines. In December 1941, Wonder Woman's first adventure appeared in ALL STAR COMICS #8, written by Marston under the pen name Charles Moulton. An early feminist, Marston believed that woman's rightful place was as world leader, not servant or helpmate. Marston wrote nearly all the Wonder Woman comic book stories and the syndicated strip until his death in 1947.
Much of the success of Wonder Woman can be attributed to the unique style of Harry G. Peter, whose stark and simple illustrations were unlike anything else seen during comics' early days. Born a generation earlier than most of his Golden Age colleagues, Peter was strongly influenced by the classic illustrators of the nineteenth century, and his technique reflected their elaborate line work. He drew nearly every story of the Amazing Amazon from the feature's debut until his death in 1958.

Wonder Woman must prove herself worthy of rejoining the Justice League of America (JLA) by passing 12 tests called "the twelve labors." In each test she must battle a villain and right the wrongs done by them. As she deals with each test a JLA member observes her and reports back to the JLA with all they have seen and gives his or her opinion as to whether or not Wonder Woman should be allowed to rejoin the JLA. This is a great set of comics. Originally published in the 1970's, these stories show why she was called "Super Heroine Number One." Wonder Woman battles different types of villains including some who practice mind control. The stories were very interesting and entertaining. I could not stop reading. I love this set! I hope DC makes more classic Wonder Woman issues available on the Nook.
