Preview!

Newsarama has a few preview pages for Manhunter #26 up. Special (Hattip Elayne)



Not an official Wonder Woman comic, sadly (though at the rate we're going we'll see it before we see Wonder Woman #3!)

  1. I really do not like that page. Everything else looks great though. This should be fun, fun, fun, funnnnnn!

    (And would you mind terribly if I made a redisign of Arisia's costume? The little fashion designer in me is hard at work!)

  2. Sandi -- ACtually, we were JUST talking abotu that over on a thread at Zamaron. I want to too, except I can't draw very well.

    Hell, if you e-mail me, I'll post it there.

  3. Sweet.

    I'd read Zamaron, but I'm not really a Green Lantern fan. When 52 is over, I'll check it out, since you've inspried me, (maybe Catwoman as well. Do you recommend that?).

  4. The art on those pages is incredible! I know Robin Riggs from Supergirl...who's the other guy, Javier Pina? Is he new to 'mainstream' comics? The interior art makes Arthur Adams cover seem pale in contrast...and I like Arthur Adams!

    I agree, Ragnell, WW fans better take her appearances where they can...until DC can find someone who's interested/available for more than 5 issues(grumble, grumble)...you say WW is one of the Big Three, DC? Your actions seem to prove otherwise...

  5. Hey, Ragnell, I did the drawings. I hope you like them. :) I'll try and e-mail them to you tomorrow.

  6. And speaking of costumes, isn't it time for an upgrade for WW? Maybe something a little...I don't know...Greek? What about her costume from Kingdom Come? I wouldn't even mind seeing her put on on Attic-style helmet for big fights.

  7. Sandicomm -- Sweet!

    Hale -- Hmm.. They've used the armor from there, but I don't see Greek coming back. I heard Picoult asked to change her costume and they wouldn't let her.

    Iconic stuff.

  8. What I love most about these pages is how much has been put into the body language and expressions. Even if you didn't know the characters you could easily point out winch one's the princess given power by the gods and which one's the overworked single mother in a 'borrowed' superhero suit.

  9. I don't see WW's costume as "iconic" in the same sense as, say, Superman's, where you can't change the beltloops without causing a kerfluffle. Batman regularly changes belts, boots, capes, etc. and no one seems to mind. Likewise with Captain America. I think an Amazon warrior would have a more practical costume, and maybe one that reflected her culture a little better. But you're right; it's not likely to happen.
