IDW, DC Team for 'Wonder Woman: The Complete Newspaper Comics'
New hardcover collection bring material by Wonder Woman's creators back into print for the first time in seven decades.
After almost 75 years of minor neglect, DC Entertainment’s Wonder Woman continues to have a good 2014. Following the announcement of Sensation Comics, a digital anthology series (with subsequent print edition) focusing on the iconic Amazon warrior, IDW Publishing and DC Entertainment announced Tuesday that the character’s short-lived 1940s newspaper strip would be returning to print for the first time in seven decades.
The hardcover Wonder Woman: The Complete Newspaper Comics will collect the entire run of syndicated strip by William Moulton Marston and Harry G. Peters, the same creative team responsible for Wonder Woman’s original comic book stories.
The 196-page collection, published by IDW Publishing in partnership with DCE and the Library of American Comics, will be the first time the work has appeared since its original publication; The newspaper strip only lasted for a little over eighteen months—from May 1, 1943 through December 1, 1944—and has gone unseen, and mostly forgotten, ever since.
Wonder Woman: The Complete Newspaper Comics will be released in August, the same month as the first print issue of DC’s own Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman, signaling an increase in the character's profile ahead of her movie debut in 2016's Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice.
