Get us out from under, Blunder Woman
Wonder Woman…Wonder Girl…Wonder Tot…it's a wonder anyone bought Wonder Woman! Back in the early 1960s fandom had the Alley Awards. There was an early designation for "Worst Comic Book;" the Bob Kanigher-edited and written, Andru and Esposito-drawn Wonder Woman "won."
This early fanzine strip is from 1964. In a great little short by Marv Wolfman and artist Dave Herring perfectly captures the Wonder Woman comic. Odd was a fun fanzine, inspired by Harvey Kurtzman and Humbug.
I had to really work at this spirit-duplicated strip to make it presentable. Like a lot of ditto'd fanzines it was unevenly printed.
To Dave Herring and Marv Wolfman, thanks for a very funny strip.
