H.G. Peter

It’s rare I see a Wonder Woman piece I haven’t seen, but here is one. It’s looks like a poster from a book. Beautiful Wonder Woman.

It’s beautiful, but I don’t think that’s H.G. Peter art.  The background line art is, but compare the faces to the central figure.  Those are not the same face.  According to Les Daniels’s Wonder Woman: The Complete History the poster is from a promotion for a short-lived WW newspaper strip from King Features.  The strip debuted in 1944.  I’d bet the face was changed by another artist by King Features to reflect the more “glamour-girl” look that was popular in newspaper comics in those days (as with Brenda Starr, for example).
