Despite the overwhelming racism, ugly artwork, and bondage fetishism, I somehow managed to kind of enjoy this book. The stories are pretty simple and there's plenty of action - exactly what you'd expect from a World War II era comic book. The villains are all agents of Axis powers, children help save the day, Steve Trevor takes his off shirt a couple of times (!!), Hitler chews on a carpet, and America is saved! For a richer experience read all of the Germans' lines like they do in that 'Whitest ...more

I found a cheap copy of this at Forbidden planet and decided to try it as I liked the art and have always been curious about early Wonder Woman comics. It was AMAZING! Much more like the 30s serials and comics that I love than the later superhero comics. It was quite interesting to sit and read about Wonder Woman bringing hope in the war and imagining reading this while the war was still going on. I don't think most comics these days try and be as relevant. There were astro travel adventures to ...more

This book begins with Wonder Woman #2 and ends with Wonder Woman #3. In between, the book features Wonder Woman stories form Sensation Comics #10-#14 and Comics Cavalcade #1.

Moulston's plotting of Wonder Woman #2 and #3 is particularly clever. After Wonder Woman #1 followed the popular practice the day of four unrelated stories starring the heroine, in Both Wonder Woman magazines we're presented with four stories that are closely related. The first set teamed Wonder Woman against Ares, the god o

Volume two of the Chronicles runs through the end of first full year of Wonder Woman comics (1942) and into the second year (1943). It is a collection both expanding the WW universe from the first introduction and reflecting the era in which it the stories were originally published with Diane battling the nazis and their allies, be they soldiers or evil gods.

While the stories continue from where the earlier collection's ones left off, they are running out of the steam that pushed the earlier col

The original Woner Women comics from the 1940s.
The stories by William Moulton are a bit weird, rather different than most superhero comics. The stories are not always very good, and sometimes they don't make sense at all, but they are always original.


The art by Harry G. Peter will not be appreciated by everyone, but I certainly love it. And again, it is very different form the art in most superhero comics.

Wonder Woman battles the forces of the war-god Mars and the treacherous German spy Paula von Gunther, in between trying to balance her double-life as Diana Prince and fend off ordinary Axis adversaries. With its rather grotesque art and Marston's bondage themes this isn't for everyone's taste, but I like it.

Nope. Done with these. Racist, plodding stories with tons of words that are worth skipping. I don't know why but these stories were particularly painful as compared to the previous volume.

The art isn't too bad (when they aren't portraying a minority), but that's about it.

Camp of the highest quality. Pretty sure it's unintentional. Which makes it funnier.

Not exactly politically correct, but interesting to get some background on the Wonder Woman character.
