After almost 75 years of neglect, DC Entertainment’s Wonder Woman continues to have a good 2014. Following the announcement of Sensation Comics, a digital anthology series (with subsequent print edition) focusing on the iconic Amazon warrior, IDW Publishing and DC Entertainment announce that the character’s short-lived 1940s newspaper strip would be returning to print for the first time in seven decades.
The hardcover Wonder Woman: The Complete Newspaper Comics will collect the entire run of syndicated strip by William Moulton Marston and Harry G. Peters, the same creative team responsible for Wonder Woman’s original comic book stories.
From the publisher:
“Just a few years after Wonder Woman burst into comic books, the world’s most famous female superhero starred in her own daily newspaper strip written and drawn by the same creative team that produced the comic book: William Moulton Marston (writer) and Harry G. Peters (artist).
This beautiful 196-page hardcover book starts the story on Paradise Island where Amazonian women rule supreme and no men are allowed. Their way of life is about to change when Steve Trevor, a wounded American soldier, washes up on their shores. Soon, Princess Diana of the Amazons—rechristened Wonder Woman—is off to America, where the saga continues!”
