About this product
- DescriptionWonder Woman, arguably the best-kwn female superhero in the world, and star of her own monthly comics, was introduced in the early 1940s in these quirky tales written by the inventor of the lie detector, psychologist William Moulton Marston. In these stories, Wonder Woman travels from Paradise Island to Man's World, where she serves as an emissary of peace, using her bracelets and lasso of truth to stop injustice. These stories introduce the mythology of Wonder Woman as she battles the powers of evil--from crooked business owners to Nazi spies. Collects ALL STAR COMICS #8, SENSATION COMICS #1-24 and WONDER WOMAN #1-7.
- Author BiographyA 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.
