Diana Prince really is on a roll this year. Not only is the DCEU's Wonder Woman winning hearts of fans and critics while moving past all sorts of milestones at the box office, but it seems like a Wonder Woman comic has just been sold at an auction for almost a million dollars.

Not only does the Princess of Themyscira have the highest grossing female-led superhero film, she also has the highest selling female-led comicbook of all time.

According to a report by Bleeding Cool,All Star Comics #8 , a DC comic which contains the Diana's origin and the first appearance of William Moulton Marston and H.G. Peter has just been sold on ebay for an astounding price of $963,223.

Sold by Pristine Comics (the same dealer which had sold Action Comics #1 for $3.2 million back in 2014), this new auction sale makes Action Comics #8 the priciest female-led comic books in auction history.

Given that the comic remained flawless despite being first released in December 1941, it's no surprise hearing that the comic came up to close to a million at the event , after all, it's hard to maintain a comicbook's quality, especially if it reaches 75 years of age.

Wonder Woman's surge in popularity probably also helped with the sale – the success of Gal Gadot's first feature film as Diana Prince has certainly brought in a keen interest from the public.

Gadot will reprise her role as Wonder Woman in the DCEU's Justice League on November 17, 2017.
