    Like the tiara, but definitely not the collar thingy. Is that supposed to be a lion? Dare I ask what that has to do with Wonder Woman? Girl? Lady?

    Now if that’s not Wonder “Whomever” I take that last comment back. 😉

    On an off-topic remark, is that “Jeff Art” I see on the UGO’s Comic Con 2010 coverage add?

    i like the collar and lions are very Greek/roman so it fits

    This is the new Wonder Woman design launched the other day for issue 600 (and the next year apparently); even though I don’t particularly care for it I wanted to give it a whirl. I couldn’t tell what the collar design was exactly from the image I had, so I kind of took a leap of faith.

    And yes Worf, those are recycled Sketches of the Day they used for their ComicCon stuff. Neat to see it up! I need to get a copy of that city background they used for the sci-fi looking woman, that’s pretty neat.

  4. I usually critique stuff on its own merits. However, SOD 182 compared to SOD 181 is a major improvement. Though Wonder Woman is supposed to be a young lass, she should be portrayed as a serious, ready-for-business woman. Ummm… office business… yeah, that’s it.

    I think that’s why Linda Carter really stood out. In her satin tights, fighting for her rights. She defined office cute, and was a pre-cursor to cougar and MIWLTHCW (Mom-I-Would-Love-To-Have-Coffee-With). You know what I mean.

    No, seriously. Wonder Woman is sexy and sophisticated. That’s why SOD 182 works and SOD 181 is “meh”. It’s the reason why I think the official reboot Wonder Woman as an urban high school club-hopper doesn’t work.

    By the by, I though “reboot” was cool when they did it for Star Trek (excellent movie!). But now it’s an excuse to lame something up more. I think of it as Highlander, then Highlander 2… then came the third Highlander.

    The studio even said “Please ignore Highlander 2, we’re so sorry”. Even Star Wars Episodes I & II. Well, here’s III, accept our apologies.

    That’s the new Wonder Woman. And Coke II. Dare I mention Schumacher’s Batman? Look, Lucky Charms doesn’t need more marshmallow shapes. I’ll stop ranting now.

    Atomic, you realize SOD.181 was Wonder GIRL, not Wonder WOMAN, right? Two totally different characters …

  6. @Jeff: My bad. *sheepish blush*

    I stand by my disdain for Straczynski’s Wonder Woman.
