It's not surprising that Wonder Woman is doing something heroic, but this time it's the character's collectible comic books that are fighting the bad guys.

An upcoming eBay for Charity auction will offer three rare Wonder Woman issues to benefit an organization that fights against human trafficking.

EBay reports that the auction will feature three "highest-graded" copies of Golden Age comic books: Wonder Woman #1 (1942), Sensation Comics #1 (1942), and Wonder Woman's first appearance, All-Star Comics #8 (1941). The Wonder Woman stories are all written by Wonder Woman co-creator William Moulton (under the pen name Charles Moulton) and drawn by Harry G. Peter.

A portion of the proceeds will be given to Trafficking Hope, a non-profit organization that campaigns against human trafficking.

The comics come from Darren Adams, the owner of Pristine Comics, who previously sold Action Comics #1 (1938), the first appearance of Superman, for an eBay record price of $3.2 million. This auction may also generate some record numbers, thanks to the success of the Wonder Woman feature film. According to The Hollywood Reporter, eBay is experiencing a 59% increase in sales of Wonder Woman material in 2017.

More information on the auction, which begins at 8 p.m. EST on August 13, are available below and at eBay.
