New comics collections out this week: Wonder Woman in the Fifties; Superman: Kryptonite Nevermore; Doctor Strange: Alone Against Eternity

Click the links to order from Amazon.

For the first time ever, DC collects the best Wonder Woman tales from the 1950s. In this decade, the Amazon Princess fought for justice against spy rings, robots, hidden societies of evil, supernatural beings, and much more. Plus, a female reporter uncovers Diana's greatest secrets on a trip to Paradise Island.

Everyone knows Superman's major weakness: Kryptonite. But what happens when that's taken off the board, as a scientific experiment turns all the kryptonite on Earth to iron? Originally published in 1971, this story turned the Man of Steel's status quo on its head. When all Kryptonite has been destroyed,the Man of Steel is anything but invulnerable as his powers slowly begin to fade and a doppelganger Superman arrives on the scene with strange powers of its own--and any contact between the two might result in the destruction of the planet!
Collects Superman #233-238 and #240-242.

Steve Englehart and Gene Colan set before you a series of unmatched Doctor Strange classics! Dormammu and Umar attack, and Eternity declares that the end times are here. To save us all, Stephen Strange must confront - himself - or it'll be the end of the world as we know it! Englehart concludes his run with a Dracula crossover, a trip to Hell and a time-travelling Occult History of America. Then, Marv Wolfman and Jim Starlin take the reins, pitting the good Doctor against Xander the Merciless and Clea gone mad! It's a descent into the bizarre Quadriverse that ends with a reckoning, as Strange confronts his status as Sorcerer Supreme! All this, plus a beautifully illustrated Annual by co-writer/artist P. Craig Russell!
COLLECTING: VOL. 4: DOCTOR STRANGE (1974) 6-28, ANNUAL (1977) 1; TOMB OF DRACULA (1972) 44; GIANT-SIZE DOCTOR STRANGE (1975) 1 (COVER ONLY)
