    Jill Thompson's Chicago Tribune article in print in today's Sunday newspaper

    From Vu

    The Jill Thompson article, written by Christopher Borrelli, that we previously mentioned will finally be seen in print on the Sunday Edition of the Chicago Tribune (02 July 2017) newspaper.  Thanks to pressreader.com for providing the cover and finalized article, with a different title, "Chicago Artist Breathed Life Into Wonder Woman" (as seen on the cover page).

    Here is another excerpt:

    Not until "Sandman" in the early '90s did she feel recognized for her work.

    "This is an embarrassing story," [Neil] Gaiman said, "but I was signing comics in San Diego, and this fan brought me a picture of (his character) Death that Jill had drawn for her. I had to find her, and that afternoon Jill was in my signing line, and I said I saw her drawing and asked if she was interested in working on 'Sandman' and she thought I was toying with her, and so I called Karen and asked if we could spring her from Wonder Woman."

    DC Comics

    Chicagoan Jill Thompson has been a longtime artist for DC Comics and is one of the first women to make a name in this once-male-dominated industry. She has also been one of the artists behind “Wonder Woman” comics. (Phil Velasquez/Chicago Tribune)
    Excerpt:

    She found herself as the artist to DC writer/artist George Perez, whose take on Wonder Woman in the late 1980s would set much of the tone and mythology associated with the character since. He approached Wonder Woman as a sort of utopian feminist-warrior ideal. He underlined her connection with the gods, and provided depth to her island paradise of Themyscira. Nevertheless, though Thompson was hired by DC editor Karen Berger, Wonder Woman comics at the time were still written and drawn entirely by men.

    "I remember people telling me then how important it was for a woman to draw a monthly book," she said, "but I also remember, the first time I spoke on the phone with George, my body blushed I was so nervous — I remember that I sweated right through my shirt."

    Thompson, who had grown up as a devoted comics reader — and who at 50 now says she never seriously considered doing anything but drawing comic books for a living — revered major-league names like Perez. She just wasn't much of a Wonder Woman fan.

    Dear Princess Diana,

    I just wanted to let you know how grateful I was that you allowed me to document your adventures, and it is with great sadness that I must now announce my retirement from the ‘Wonder Woman’ series.

    I’ve learned a lot these past few years and I’d like to think that I’m a better person for having followed your adventures and hope that I did your exploits justice. As so often happens in life, it’s time to move on to start working on that next chapter in the book of life (a recurring image you’ll notice in my final issue). …

    Well, that’s it for me. I’m glad your current troubles are over and hope your future will prove less hazardous. In your line of work I know that seems unlikely, but there’s no harm in hoping.

    Take care, Princess Diana. And as they say over on Themyscira: the Glory of Gaea be with you.

    Best,
    George Perez

    News: When Byrne Was Offered Wonder Woman...

    Topic: Mr. Byrne....Q about Fearbook
    Posted: November 25 2004 at 2:32pm

    When I was offered WONDER WOMAN there were a lot of things that came immediately to mind -- not the least of which being that I would have to be out of my frigging mind to follow George Perez, even if it was ten years later.

    One of the actual story concepts that came to me, tho, in the midst of my fear and trepidation, was to wonder just how our Decent, God Fearing Nation would respond to a woman who was walking around claiming to have, you know, actually met the Greek Gods. Bound not to sit too well with the Jerry Falwells, I figured.

    Unfortunately, this also seemed like a story that I could not really handle properly in a monthly superhero comic. (Hey! This was ten years ago! Today, I know, I could do 200 pages of Wonder Woman pacing her apartment worrying about all this. Now that's comic books!) Then I was asked to do the novel, and I realized that was a perfect place to explore all the themes this idea suggested.
