A birthday salute to Wonder Woman’s first artist…
The late H.G. Peter — born 141 years ago on March 8, 1880 (!) — was the first artist to draw Wonder Woman, an illustrator with a distinctive, often oddball style that’s easy to pick out from his Golden Age compatriots.
He also happened to be one of the oldest creators of the Golden Age — he was 61 when William Moulton Marston’s Amazing Amazon debuted in the fall of 1941, in the back of All-Star Comics #8.
Wonder Woman wasn’t on the cover of that issue, but it wouldn’t be long before she headlined two titles — Sensation Comics and her eponymously named series.
