Reprinted for the first time, the complete newspaper comics featuring the adventures of the world's most famous female superhero, written and drawn by her creators!

Just a few years after she burst into comic books, Wonder Woman was a sensation. Beginning in May 1944, she began appearing in her own daily newspaper strip, written by her creator, William Moulton Marston, and drawn by original artist Harry G. Peters.

Since then, she's starred in comics, television shows, video games, and finally, in 2017, a major motion picture by Patty Jenkins, which recieved critical acclaim and broke the record for biggest opening weekend ever for a movie directed by a woman.
