Golden Age Wonder Woman meets the Mole Men
These are from Wonder Woman #4, 1943.
When I was a kid in the 70's, I bought a current issue of Wonder Woman that dealt with these same Mole Men. In fact, the story was almost the same, except without Paula von Gunther. And there's another Golden Age story I shared with y'all recently where Wonder Woman dealt with the Seal Men. In a nutshell, WW kept encountering semi-animalistic men who cruelly oppressed normal-looking human women until the Amazing Amazon showed up. Oh, if only the symbolism were less subtle!
