Wonder Woman 600 by AdamHughes Wonder Woman 600 by AdamHughes
Client: DC Comics
Media: Pencil, india ink, and Adobe Photoshop CS2

This is the variant cover I did for DC Comics' WONDER WOMAN#600. DC has been getting modern artists to pay homage to classic Golden Age DC covers, and this was my attempt.

Have you any idea how that caption on the 'original' cover could be mis-read?

I mean strip character...hmmm?

This is all amazing. As a veteran, I only suggest that they monochromatic background doesn't include the flag which is also a focal point in the older version. Your anatomy, line work, and textures just blow me away every time. What programs do you color in?!

That's the original debut cover for wonder woman. The one Adam drew is a homage.

It was a pleasure meeting you at HeroesCon and at Heroes Aren't Hard to Find in Charlotte. Thanks for autographing "Cover Run" for me. It's a beautiful collection of your work, and I really enjoy your comments. And I'm glad my dog could provide lunch for your dogs!

So far I saw yours and Mignola one for this classic covers homage, and both are just amazing. In yours, I love how that classic colors and designs fit your style so well.

What an inspiration you are for me, mr. Hughes, if you don't mind me saying it.

Saw this in the DC exhibition today at the London Film and Comic Con! Your version that is. I certainly didn't expect it to be up so quickly. And it was definitely my favourite part.

Okay the weird slightly drugged Batman statue was my favourite.

Then this.
