IDW To Publish Collected Wonder Woman Newspaper Strips

IDW Publishing has announced that, in partnership with DC Entertainment and Library of American Comics, it will collect the entirety of the original Wonder Woman newspaper comic strips that ran from May 1, 1943 until December 1, 1944 in one volume for the first time.

A few years after Wonder Woman was introduced in comic books, the same creative team of writer William Moultan Marston and artist Harry G. Peters began producing a daily newspaper comic strip.

The 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.

Wonder Woman: The Complete Newspaper Comics will be released this August.
