William Moulton Marston comic
The most famous of all the women who have ever been called a superhero, Wonder Woman exploded into the world of comic books amid the uncertainty and bleak determination of World War II. Fighting for justice and treating even her enemies with firm compassion, Wonder Woman brought not a cape nor a ring nor a personal fortune or hidden clubhouse, but a magical lariat that compelled anyone it bound to tell the truth, and bracelets that could not only deflect bullets but prevent Wonder Woman from ever using her superpowers for unchecked destruction.The very first stories of the Amazon Warrior are collected here in WONDER WOMAN: THE GOLDEN AGE VOLUME 1, featuring the adventures of Wonder Woman as she tackles corruption, oppression and cruelty in ALL STAR COMICS #8, COMIC CAVALCADE #1, SENSATION COMICS #1-14 and WONDER WOMAN #1-3.

"The most recognizable superheroine of all time, Wonder Woman has been an essential part of the DC Universe and an icon for female empowerment for more than 75 years. Armed with her lasso of truth and her bullet-stopping bracelets, the Amazon Princess journeys into Man's World again and again, spreading her mission of peace and goodwill and fiercely battling injustice where she finds it. She's a princess, a warrior and an ambassador. Beautiful as Aphrodite, wise as Athena, stronger than Hercules, swifter than Mercury... she is Wonder Woman! WONDER WOMAN: A CELEBRATION OF 75 YEARS collects more than 400 pages of the iconic heroine's best stories, from her first appearance by William Moulton Marston and H.G. Peter, to her mod '60s redesign by Denny O'Neil and Mike Sekowsky, to her present-day adventures by Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang. Other legendary talents featured include George Pérez, Darwyn Cooke, Robert Kanigher, Gene Colan, Phil Jimenez, Mike Deodato, Greg Rucka, Gail Simone and more".
Green Lantern was published by DC Comics, then known as National Periodical Publications, lasting for 38 issues from 1941 until 1949. Green Lantern had previously made is debut in the anthology series, All-American Comics, beginning with issue #16 and was popular enough to feature in his own magazine. In addition to the regular Green Lantern features, back-up stories included regular strips such as Hop Harrigan and Mutt & Jeff. Alan Scott also acquired a pet dog, named Streak, that would sometimes feature on the main cover.
Given the demand for paper during wartime, finding a 128 page comic of all new material on sale for 25c was a welcome discovery. The Big All American Comic Book was a stand alone issue edited by Sheldon Mayer and starred characters from the All American Publications lineup, including lead heroes Wonder Woman, Hawkman and the Flash, alongside lesser lights such as Scribbly, the Whip, the Ghost Patrol, and Little Boy Blue. It was published by William H. Wise and company, an outside publisher with access to paper stockpiles.
