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."
