Issue Notes

Bob Kanigher launches a Silver Age revamping of the book, starting from square one with a new, blonde Queen Hippolyta officiating the contest that sends Princess Diana to Man's World. In the next few issues, Diana will assume a secret identity as secretary to Col. Steve Trevor in Military Intelligence, and many of the old Golden Age villains will be relaunched.
