Wonder Woman PSA-Irwin Hasen-1950

WONDER WOMAN was drawn originally in the distinctive, old-fashioned style of the aged artist HG Peter. A few other artists tried their hand at the Amazon princess after Peter's passing before the classic Andru/Esposito team became her regular chroniclers settled in for the long run. Here, however, we have a one page Jack Schiff PSA from 1950 where we see a sleek and beautiful Wonder Woman unlike any version that came before or after it up through the Silver Age. Makes me wish the still very much with us Hasen had taken over the strip! Ah, but then we might never have had DONDI.
