    Default 80 Years of Wonder Woman Covers

    Few months back in the Superman board there was an 83 years of Superman covers thread where you post what you consider the single best cover featuring Superman for each year of his publication. Thought it'd be fun to try this with Wonder Woman's 80th anniversary.

    Ground rules are mostly the same as it was there:

    1. It has to feature Wonder Woman (Diana) as a central part of the picture (no ensembles unless she's squarely in the middle of it)

    2. Main canon books (at the time) are preferred but Elseworlds aren't off the table (but try to keep it Wonder Woman-centric ones)

    3. No substitutes with other Wonder-characters (Steve Trevor, Nubia, Artemis, Donna, Cassie, Hippolyta, any of the rogues, etc) unless Diana is also prominently featured.

    4. The main ongoing titles are preferred, but miniseries and graphic novels are acceptable. Team/ensemble books like the JL, JSA, TT, or JLD are not.

    5. Variants from permissible books are fine.

    6. Chronological order year by year.

    To stat off:

    1941 (was on sale in November 1941)

    Is there even a contest for 1942?

    Yes, I imagine a few of these years will have some obvious candidates.

    How does this work? Only one cover per year in the thread? Meaning that the next person should post from 1945 even if your pick from 1944 is not their favorite?
    I only support clay origins.

    Yes, like that. Though we can cycle back if we get through 80.

    This wasn’t a great year for covers IMO. But I like the urgency in Diana’s form here.

    This one for its uncharacteristic simplicity.

    Wow…talk about a sign of the changing times! Even the typeface for ”Sensation” says this is now a romance book.

    Probably swiped from Ballerina Diana in the back there, presumably, since she's seems off in her own world.
