World of Wonder Week 25!
A Series of Firsts
Last week, we read about DC’s first alternate Earth story. I figured we’d continue on that path. As World of Wonder’s first week post Crisis on Infinite Clubs in the first month of the first year of a new decade, we will be reading a series of firsts. All-Star Comics #8 marks the first appearance and original origin of Wonder Woman. The story continues into the first issue of Sensation Comics and the first issue of Wonder Woman (1942-). With Wonder Woman #750 arriving next week, what better time to visit where this icon got her start? Wonder Woman’s Invisible Jet makes its first appearance as well!
When: 2020-01-15T08:00:00Z → 2020-01-21T08:00:00Z
What to read: ALL-STAR COMICS (1940-) #8, SENSATION COMICS (1942-) #1, WONDER WOMAN (1942-) #1
