This landmark issue of the comic heralds the debut of William Moulton Marston’s iconic Wonder Woman character in her own exclusive full length comic title, initially published quarterly.

This first issue contains a brief description of the character and four full-length stories. After her initial brief appearance in All-Star Comics #8 and nine appearances to date as the lead character in Sensation Comics, DC nevertheless already retcons her origin in a few different ways, most notably by giving her a Lasso of Truth before she leaves Paradise Island for the first time. In the previous continuity she only received the lasso after returning to Paradise Island in Sensation Comics #6.

It’s worth noting that the third story entitled “Wonder Woman Vs. the Prison Spy Ring” was the inspiration for the first episode of the ABC TV show “Wonder Woman”, starring the iconic Lynda Carter, and which was called “Wonder Woman Meets Baroness Von Gunther”.
