WONDER WOMAN #49 (Dec 1990)
Wonder Woman, Jim Lee, JMS, and the pants
by Colleen Doran on July 30th, 2011

A lot of internet natter following my Wonder Woman concept design sketches for J Michael Straczynski. It’s a good thing I have most comics commentary sites on block or on strict time limits, or I’d have been sucked down the rabbit hole. My editors want me to get my books done, dontcha know.


Anyway, some nice folks asked why DC had never hired me to draw Wonder Woman before. Well, I’ve drawn Wonder Woman several times, including a stint as fill-in artist for George Perez. The last time I got to play with Wondy was in 1997 in a 48 page comic written by Trina Robbins inked by Jackson Guice. Jackson is a terrific artist and a wonderful person, but we did not mesh well, and the book was not entirely well-received.
