Written by Glen Hanson and Alan Neuwirth, with stylish art by Salgood Sam and eye-catching colors by the legendary Bernie Mireault, REALWORLDS: WONDER WOMAN takes place at a time when the American dream was not all it was cracked up to be. Actress Brenda Kelly is Wonder Woman…at least in the weekly movie serials of Hollywood’s Golden Age. But as postwar America turns away from the threat of the Axis powers and declares a Cold War on a new enemy, Communism, Brenda soon finds both herself and the character she plays being used by Red-baiting politicians to further their own political careers while destroying the lives of innocent people. Among those accused of having Communist loyalties is Brenda’s screenwriter boyfriend, whose career has effectively been ended by the policy Brenda, and Wonder Woman, have helped to promote. Can even the so-called Wonder Woman save the man she loves?
