IDW to release Wonder Woman comic strip collection in August

by  in Comic News Comment

The original Wonder Woman comic strip will be collected for the first time in August in IDW Publishing’s 196-page hardcover Wonder Woman: The Complete Newspaper Strip 1943-1944.

It’s part of the March 2013 partnership with DC Entertainment and the Library of American Comics that includes the Superman and Batman comic strip collections. Unlike the other two superheroes, who had lengthy tenures in newspapers (even if the Caped Crusader’s was broken up into three major runs), Wonder Woman’s was short-lived, lasting only from May 1, 1943 to Dec. 1, 1944.

Written by William Moulton Marston and drawn by Harry G. Peter, the team behind the Wonder Woman comic series, the strip covers familiar territory, from Diana’s roots on Paradise Island to the arrival of Steve Trevor to mission in America.
