The daily Wonder Woman newspaper comic strip began on May 1 1944, and ran until December 1 1945. There was no accompanying Sunday strip. It was syndicated to newspapers by King Features. The strips were written and drawn by Wonder Woman's creators, writer William Moulton Marston and artist Harry G. Peter.

The comic strip was a separate continuity from the comic books. (The introduction to Wonder Woman: The Daily Comics 1944-1945 jokingly suggests the strip is based on "Earth N -- for Newspapers", but this is not an official Earth designation.) The opening story-line was a relatively faithful retelling of Wonder Woman's origin from Wonder Woman #1, but after that the comic strip was less fantastic than the comic book, with Wonder Woman facing fewer super-villains and more mundane criminals (although versions of the Mole Men (from Wonder Woman #4) and Cheetah did appear in the comic strip). The comic strip continued the comic book's theme of the superiority of female rule, and the use of bondage imagery to illustrate that theme.
