Wonder Woman Stars In: “The Amazing Spy Ring Mystery” Details inside….
Welcome to another Wonder Woman Wednesday Vintage DC Fans!
WONDER WOMAN Vol.1, No.43, September 1950; Cover Art: Irv Novick; Writer: Robert Kanigher; Penciler: Harry G. Peter; Inker: Harry G. Peter
In the first of three stories, Wonder Woman is wrongly accused of being the master spy known as Z-One. The real villain is already dead, but Diana is publicly posing as the agent in order to smoke out three lieutenants that complete the spy ring, and her final challenge is a deceptively simple word puzzle. In the second adventure, Lenard Shipline owner Lemuel Tugboat has his ships threatened by a saboteur, including one on which Etta Candy and the Holliday Girls are sailing.
It’s all the work of Nuclear, magnetic murderer, otherwise known as Percy Playboy. In the final feature, it’s a Southern Gothic swamp mystery as the deranged sibling of explorer Globe Trotter uses marauding elephants against the Amazon Princess in order to secure his family fortune. A “Wonder Women of History” feature focuses on publisher, lawyer, and activist Myra Colby Bradwell.
