Wonderful stamps

A stamp that depicts Wonder Woman during the Silver Age (1956-72) will be among four issued by USPS this fall.

The Postal Service will release four stamps this fall to commemorate the 75th anniversary of one of the world’s most iconic superheroes: Wonder Woman.

The stamps will be among other Wonder Woman items revealed July 23 at Comic-Con International in San Diego. USPS will dedicate the stamps Oct. 7 at New York Comic-Con.

Wonder Woman debuted in 1941 in All Star Comics at a time when female superheroes were rare. With her star-spangled costume, bulletproof bracelets and magic lasso, she quickly broke out and headlined her own title by the following year.

Generations of fans have come to adore Wonder Woman through comic books — reflected in the stamps’ depictions of her in the 1940s, around 1960, in the 1980s and in the 2010s — as well as other media adaptations, including the beloved 1970s TV series starring Lynda Carter.

Wonder Woman, who was also featured on 2006 stamps, made her first big-screen appearance earlier this year in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and will be seen next year in a solo film starring Gal Gadot.

USPS is encouraging fans to share the news using the hashtags #WonderWomanForever and #WonderWoman75.
