Happy 70th Birthday Wonder Woman!
The Amazonian Princess is looking pretty good for a Septuagenarian. Here we look back over her long history and iconic status in the DC Universe..
Wonderverse has received news from Andy Mangels that "Today, October 25th, is the "real world" 70th birthday of Wonder Woman!"
That's right! America's Super-heroine Number One first appeared on newstands on this day back in 1941.
Andy Mangels explained: "The Amazing Amazon first appeared in a 9-page back-up story in All-Star Comics #8, written by her creator William Moulton Marston, and drawn by H.G. Peter.
The book had a cover-date of Dec-Jan 1941-1942, but because comics were/are sold months in advance of their cover-date, it first went on sale on newsstands on October 25, 1941.
The first issue of Sensation Comics (cover-dated January 1942) went on sale on November 7, 1941."
Happy Birthday Wonder Woman!
