The introduction of Giganta
THIS IS ONE OF THE CRACKIEST WW STORIES EVER.
The story reveals Marston's usual lack of compunction about deus ex machina and, shall we say, casual grasp of science. Remember that he was a psychologist, with more than a hint of the huckster about him. His editor revealed years later that "if I had let him put in all the symbolism and stuff he wanted to, the stories would have been even weirder." The mind boggles.
This story was 36 pages long, so there are lots of scans, 9 pages worth. Good thing, because I didn't want to have to drop any of them.
Also, you can see Silver Age Giganta here.
