Sideshow
Sideshow

Continuing Sideshow Collectibles' premium format figure line based on Mark Millar's, Dave Johnson's and Killian Plunkett's Superman: Red Son, this week the company unveiled its Red Son Wonder Woman in full. Previously teased when the line was initially announced, the Wonder Woman statue does indeed take much of its design inspiration from the previously released, "standard" DCU Wonder Woman premium format figure. Still there are enough changes to make it an exciting new piece.

Capturing the Art of War With David Finch’s Wonder Woman Statue [Review]

DC Collectibles Wonder Woman: The Art of War by David Finch Statue

Following suit with the Batman: Black and White and Superman: Man of Steel signature designer statue lines, Wonder Woman finally got her own line last year. Dubbed Wonder Woman: The Art of War, the series presents full-color depictions of the Amazonian warrior from some of the most iconic artists in DC's employ. These interpretations don't have to be tied to any specific era or version of the character, and merely allow creators like George Perez, Jill Thompson, Cliff Chiang and more to put their own spin on the most powerful woman in comics.

While I'm not personally a fan of Finch's often over-rendered pages and inconsistent character models, the good thing about a statue is that you can't over-hatch it. Thanks to the deft craftsmanship of sculptor Clayburn Moore, the Wonder Woman: The Art of War by David Finch statue manages to be inspired by Finch's work without being held back by the artist's own shortcomings.

Gallery: Best Wonder Woman Art Ever

ww-feat

Since her 1941 debut, Wonder Woman has been one of the cornerstones of DC Comics, and of superhero comics in general.

In her 74-year-history, scores of artists have put their spin on the character, from subtle changes to her classic red, white, blue and gold costume to the "new" Wonder Woman of the late 1960s to some far more maligned interpretations that featured jackets and long pants. We've compiled a gallery of some of the most iconic Wonder Woman artists of the past seven decades, along with some positively stunning modern designs.

Stephen Byrne Gives DC Heroes a Modern Twist in ‘Trinity’ Short Story [Full Comic]

trinity-feat

Superman would have entered the public domain last year if Congress hadn't extended copyright protection more than fifteen years ago. For now, and possibly forever, DC has the exclusive rights to profit from the character --- but that happily hasn't yet stopped artists from paying tribute with their own fan-made, not-for-profit works. Among those works is artist and animator Stephen Byrne's awesome nine-page silent story starring his modern makeover versions of DC's 'Trinity', Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman.

The redesigns started out as a pin-up that proved especially popular on social media earlier this year. Byrne decided to turn the pin-up into a story, and has been posting the pages online as he completes them, with the final page going up just this past week. The story has a surprising twist in the tale that you're unlikely to see in an official Superman comic. And we don't just mean Batman using a gun.

Although cosplay has been present for decades within the comics, anime, and sci-fi/fantasy fandoms, social media has played an integral role in the thriving communities of costuming that exist, such as Cosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum. Over the years, the cosplay community has evolved into a creative outlet for many fans to establish and showcase some impressive feats of homemade disguise, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics at conventions.

In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.

‘Batman vs. Superman’ Will Embrace Wonder Woman’s Long, Long History

Wonder Woman
Warner Bros.

It’s no secret that Hollywood has a hard time embracing older women (related: this brilliant Amy Schumer sketch), but there’s one who will never have to struggle to get work: Wonder Woman. The immortal superhero has been alive for centuries (depending on which origin and continuity you prefer), and in case you were worried that the new Warner Bros. iteration of the character would try to make her more human, you needn’t worry anymore.
