Wonder Woman!

Zap! Pow! Bam! The Superhero: The Golden Age of Comic Books, 1938 - 1950 is on display at the Skirball Cultural Center through August 9th, 2009. Wonder Woman is but one of many characters to blast into this exhibit, which showcases the work by Jewish artists who created these heroic comic book characters during the late 1930's & '40's. The Skirball Center is located in Los Angeles, 310/440-4500.

The top image is an interpretation of Wonder Woman with a more contemporary spin by Ngoc Vu, while the lower image is how she first appeared fighting Nazi's back in the 1940's.
