Wonder Woman #171

Wonder Woman #171 (On Sale: May 4, 1967) has a Ross Andru and Mike Esposito cover.

Inside we have "Terror Trap of the Demon Man-Fish" by Robert Kanigher, Ross Andru and Mike Esposito. After visiting Mouse Man in prison and trying to get her former foe to reform, Wonder Woman visits Paradise Island. While participating in several contest with her fellow Amazons, Wonder Woman is attacked by a giant Man-Fish. The creature snares her in a net and tries to make the Amazon part of his mermaid aquarium.

The backup story "Menace of the Mouse Man" is also by Robert Kanigher, Ross Andru and Mike Esposito. When Wonder Woman returns from her visit to Paradise Island, she learns that Mouse Man has escaped from prison. The criminal quickly goes to work on several robberies. Wonder Woman baits Mouse Man with a jewel exhibit hoping to capture her foe when he shows up. However, the diminutive criminal is prepared for the Amazon and captures her with her own magic lasso.
