Remember when super-heroes took interest in the lives of everyday people?
The Golden Age Wonder Woman – the best version of the character, in my book – takes a bit of time out from wiping out Nazis to reunite a pair of children with their mother and enable a sentient fir tree to find fulfillment!
Take that, New 52!
“The Fir Tree’s Story” originally appeared in Sensation Comics # 14 (DC Comics, February 1943). The story was written by Wonder Woman’s creator, William Moulton Marston, and drawn by the inimitable Harry G. Peter.
