For over 75 years, since her debut in 1941’s ALL-STAR COMICS #8, Princess Diana of Themyscira—known to most as Wonder Woman—has fought to bring peace and understanding to Man’s World.
Armed with her super-strength, magic lasso, bullet-deflecting bracelets and invisible plane, Wonder Woman has always stood against tyranny and injustice, and has endured to this day as one of the Golden Age’s most timeless characters.
WONDER WOMAN: THE GOLDEN AGE VOLUME 2 chronicles the Amazing Amazon’s adventures, as illustrated by the inimitable Harry G. Peter, originally published in COMIC CAVALCADE #6-13, SENSATION COMICS #25-48, WONDER WOMAN #8-15 and THE BIG ALL-AMERICAN COMIC BOOK.

About the Author
A noted psychologist and the man 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 after he wrote an article praising the educational potential of comic books in the magazine The Family Circle. In December 1941, Wonder Woman's first adventure appeared in ALL STAR COMICS #8, written by Marston under the pen name Charles Moulton. For four years Marston wrote nearly all his creation's adventures, including both comic books and a syndicated newspaper strip. In 1945, suffering from the effects of a polio infection, he began to turn over the feature's scripting duties to others, particularly his assistant Joye Murchison. Marston died in 1947, just a week shy of his 54th birthday.
