Welcome to another Wonder Woman Wednesday Vintage DC Fans!
WONDER WOMAN Vol.1, No.26, November 1947; Cover Art: Harry G. Peter; Writer: William Moulton Marston; Penciler: Harry G. Peter; Inker: Harry G. Peter
In the first of three adventures in this issue, giant women dwelling on the planet Mercury capture Wonder Woman and her Holliday girl friends. In the second story, Tigra Tropica and her trained tigers try to terrorize millionaires into giving her money, while in the final feature, it’s time for more planetary intrigue as Earth is threatened by a red planet, King Crystallar of the White Star and the Genii People ask for Diana’s help, and everyone is captured (again) by Queen Supreema.
But things are not as they seem! A “Wonder Women of History” feature focuses on Carrie Chapman Catt, founder of the League of Women Voters as well as the International Alliance of Women, president of the National American Woman Suffrage Association, and key campaigner in the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment to the US Constitution in 1920 that gave women the right to vote.
