Raph - Australia

I first arrived in Australia in 1983. As an oversea’s student from KL attending boarding school in Bendigo (Vic), I was limited to what I could bring with me from home…somehow, I managed to smuggle amongst my luggage of essentials, a copy of Nos. 300 DC Comics Special Anniversary Issue of Wonder Woman…this is now a much treasured item in my Wonder Woman collection.

I became a fan of Wonder Woman through comic books, because in 1976 when the TV series first appeared with Lynda Carter in the leading role, wearing that ‘revealing’ costume… the show was banned in Malaysia!

The following year a school friend introduced me to my first Wonder Woman comic book, it was the issue where she did battle with ‘the queen of Egypt’…in one particular scene, the imprisoned Wonder Woman freed herself by spinning her body with her golden lasso, and tunnelling her way out of her cell was truly spectacular… It wasn’t until 1980, when my family moved to Hong Kong, that I got to watch the re-runs of Wonder Woman on TV.

In Hong Kong I discovered a book featuring the Golden Age Wonder Woman, published by Tempo Books, I was fascinated that Wonder Woman originated from the 1940s. I used to spend hours examining the black and white cartoons from this book, which I lost when we moved back to KL the following year. However, as an adult and through the wonder of ebay, I recently managed to acquire a copy for my collection.

Favorite items: The majority of my collection are comic books ranging from the Golden Age, right through to the 2011 ‘New Wonder Woman’. I do not collect everything, but rather examples of series of stories from each era. The oldest copy being Nos. 21 from 1943 Sensation Comic, featuring Wonder Woman tackling a fighter plane in mid air… now that is what I called a ‘hero image’! As a keen collector of Wonder Woman books (comics and publications), this obsession has also led me into collecting some associated Wonder Woman action figures and statues…my favourite items are the Wonder Woman mego doll and Lynda Carter statue…both treasured Christmas presents from my partner. One day I hope to acquire a copy of 1942 Sensation Comic Nos. 1 to my Wonder Woman collection. As for now, I look forward to a Wonder Woman movie or perhaps a new TV series…the time is now.
