New Wonder Woman 2011 by guinnessyde New Wonder Woman 2011 by guinnessyde
As a life long DC Comics aficionado, I have been critical of DC's many editorial and creative decisions and changes throughout the years. They're recent announcement is their most drastic to date. That said, there comes a point when I have to trust the caretakers of the characters I love so much. It doesn't mean I'm not gonna raise hell if I disagree with their direction as it unfolds. But the new "number ones" are going to happen and these decades old characters are going to be rejuvenated. I am going to embrace it.

So in honor of that, and based on the very little artwork that's been unleashed, here is my take on the all-new (?) Wonder Woman!

I dunno. One arc it's shorts, the next it's pants. I mean, how hard is it? You and I change clothes on a daily basis. So do people that work at Target!

Let's see favorite part of the NEW new costume: Back to the broad tiara, the boots are more in line with what she had before the new costume, and no more ropey ties on her arms from the tank top. Don't get me wrong I was okay with her new costume after #600, but I'm very pleased with the rebooted costume even if they gave her pants. Nice sketch!

They've actually taken off the pants since after this sketch.

I'm optomistic about the reboot and alot of the redesigns as I hold some doubts about the looks of some, even the ones I seem to dislike are growing on me Wonderwoman I think workss well in the new duds shes younger her costume is more sleek and more modern while the character is easily recognized as Wonderwoman I loved your take on her and Superman and heres hoping September will be great for all DCU fans

Oh DC... I still don't get why they think covering up her legs yet still having 70% of her breasts showing isn't still revealing is beyond me.

You certainly did a great job on the outfit though. I especially love the muscle definition you've given her as it really matches her persona. The hair is fab and she looks poised to kick some ass. I just pray that Wondy doesn't become the "chick who kicks ass" at DC. The last thing we need is a Wonder Woman without a heart and soul.

Thanks for the feedback. It should be an interesting first issue, I'm anxious to see how her character is handled this time around.

The solicit is certainly vague as can be. The image makes her look most like a warrior while the solicit seems to hint at there being some kind of suspicions surrounding the character. I feel like they're going to purposely mess with the George Perez origin which, although it is complicated, is perfect as is.

I think GP's WW origin was so definitive. I hope that it mostly sticks.

Definitely. His origin was so epic and he really didn't leave a single detail out. The Amazons had a history, Diana's name had a history, the Wonder Woman costume had a history, the bullets and bracelets game had a history... it was just all so well-planned. To simplify that now would really be insulting to what he's done.

I love this.

I'm not very critical of DC, probably not as much as I should be. I get pretty excited about every new thing they do. And I love Wonder Woman in all of her many forms. I have her most recent "Odyssey" costume tattooed on my arm (with 6 ... soon to be 7 ... other characters).

So I'm excited about this upcoming stuff!! And I can't wait to see your takes on all the new versions of the characters. Your work always amazes me.

This pic looks great & I also have been critical of DC also in regards to the decisions I make.Hell I still don't understand why Marvel is in bed with Disney.

Marvel with Disney? Yeah, that's easy: money. Disney gains the character rights and that means merchandising.

Thanks! We'll see what unfolds with DC in the next few months.

No problem,go to comics.ign.com because they unveil new Batman books & creative teams. The only thing I don't like what Disney did was basically telling Lionsgate to kick rocks as far as animated movies go.IMO I think DC has the better animated films than Marvel

DC is leaps and bounds more superior with their animation (being partnered by WB studios) than Marvel and I hope being now owned by Disney, they can do something to catch up. And yes, i am up to date with DC's new art reveals. Cool costume, but very disappointed that Dick is Nightwing again (yes most are happy about that, I realize).
