Welcome to another Wonder Woman Wednesday Vintage DC Fans!
SENSATION COMICS Vol.1, No.7, July 1942; Cover Art: Harry G. Peter; Writer: William Moulton Marston; Penciler: Harry G. Peter; Inker: Harry G. Peter
Milk does a body good, but when Alphonso de Gyppo – a lackey of Wonder Woman’s arch-enemy Baroness Paula Von Gunther – seizes control of the milk industry in order to sow chaos and confusion for American store owners and shoppers alike, it’s time for the Amazon Princess to step in and save the world for regular balanced breakfasts everywhere.
It just has to be an evil plot when milk goes up to twenty-six cents a quart – “Why, that’s outrageous!” exclaims Diana – but she’s not about to let the International Milk Co. get away with this price gouging insanity! An attempt to drown Diana in milk naturally goes awry, and Wonder Woman quickly defeats Gyppo and the Baroness after raising public awareness about the Nazi-inspired milk money scam. Got justice? Additional features with Black Pirate, Mr. Terrific, O’Malley, Gay Ghost, Little Boy Blue, and Wildcat round out the issue.
