Hey all! Above are two Wonder Woman house ads hailing from romance issues with 1963 cover dates. Last year I shared a few Wonder Woman ads from the late '60s and early '70s romance issues advertising the issues in which Wonder Woman renounced her powers and lived as Diana Prince. The above ads were published years earlier, but were similarly directed toward the romance comic audience. Though Wonder Woman was billed as a super-heroine, these ads sent the message to romance comic readers that she was still relatable and not immune to the hardships associated with love -- despite her super powers.
