(Y-11) Old School Monday… Sensation Comic (1942-1952) #1

Hello and welcome to another Old School Monday,

As I mention last week, I’ll continue with the origin story of one of the most important characters in comic book history, Wonder Woman.

As the story follows, Princess Diana brings back Captain Trevor to the world of man, here while waiting for him to get better, stops a bank robbery, becomes a carnival performer and switches identity with a nurse, from whom, she receives her incognito name, Diana Prince.

It is really interesting to see how the other characters, and Wonder Woman herself, depict women, I know that we are talking about another era, but it is really palpable how women supposed to be pretty and that conflicts with being powerful.

At least there is an effort to try and break down that misleading notion of not being able to be both, women can be whatever the fuck they want to be.

I’ll continue next week with the first issue of Diana’s solo series.
