YMMV and all that, but Hickman’s approach makes including both series in this list difficult unless something contextual occurs at the least. Thanks to Mike McDermott for bringing this to my attention!

RUTGERS UNIVERSITY PRESS

WONDER WOMAN BONDAGE FEMINISM IN COMICS 1941-48 SC 26.99 Page 442
Noah Berlatsky
William Marston was an unusual man –a psychologist, a soft-porn pulp novelist, more than a bit of a carny, and the (self-declared) inventor of the lie detector. He was also the creator of Wonder Woman, the comic that he used to express two of his greatest passions: feminism and women in bondage. Comics expert Noah Berlatsky takes us on a wild ride through the Wonder Woman comics of the 1940s, vividly illustrating how Marston’s many quirks and contradictions, along with the odd disproportionate composition created by illustrator Harry Peter, produced a comic that was radically ahead of its time in terms of its bold presentation of female power and sexuality.
