The Fifties…The world was still rebuilding itself after the Second World War and American patriotism was at an all-time high. The public, in turn, demanded champions who reflected and defneded their ideals.Beautiful as Aphrodite, wise as Athena, swifter than Mercury, and stronger than Hercules, Wonder Woman embodied all the positive values of the 1950s. To celebrate the decade, this volume features several never-before-reprinted stories that show the mighty Amazon facing off against menacing robots, aliens, and giants; teaming up with Robin Hood and the Justice Society of America; revealing the origins of her golden lasso, tiara, and invisible plane; and trying her hand at different careers! Often dangerous, sometimes humorous, but always uplifting, Wonder Woman’s adventures in the 1950s exemplify her fortitude, perseverance, and compassion. Join us in honoring Diana of Themyscira’s legacy with this collection of tales curated from All-Star Comics, Sensation Comics, and the original Wonder Woman series, written and illustrated by Robert Kanigher, Harry G. Peter, and other talented creators from this classic era.
