…you come across an artist that, in your opinion, hits it out of the park. The last time that happened for me it was Tomas Giorello on Conan. His work on the title is just stunning. Well…while maybe not quite on the same level, I recently discovered David Finch’s work on Wonder Woman, and I have been super impressed.
Teaming with his wife…he has done great work on the character, and the art is simply beautiful. With Wonder Woman it is always about restraint. The fan boys always want more…uhhh…well, more. You know what I mean. But, as the late Dave Stevens illustrated in the Rocketeer, more is not better. And I think, for the most part, Finch has managed that tight rope here on Wonder Woman.
Check out issues 36-41 (the latest issue) of the title. As this cover of issue 41 illustrates, I do not think you will be disappointed.
Until next time…
P.S. I don’t know if these issues will ever be considered “collectible”. I think they may be…and am buying multiple copies of each issue. If they never are, I will give them away to people to show them what a comic can be!
