This is awesome. Rory Philips redesigns Wonder Woman:
I have always thought Wonder Woman should look more like a warrior, and less like a pinup. The Amazons of Classical Greek lore were from the region of Scythia. I wanted her outfit to reflect that culture and be almost ceremonial.
Wonder Woman strikes me as one of those characters who can not only stand up to constant reinvention like this, but thrive from it; her look is iconic, but not so iconic that deviations from the classic seem “wrong” for whatever reason (See: Superman and those missing red shorts). Every time I see things like this, I find myself wishing that DC would launch some kind of series where new cartoonists and designers get to tell “their” Wonder Woman stories, out of continuity, and just create this amazing anthology of new, based around a character that pretty much has it all: Mythology, adventure, romance, comedy, the whole shebang. A new Sensation Comics that would actually be sensational, you know?
Then I remember that, the way these things are now, such a project would be announced, everyone would get excited, it’d get solicited and then a month before it was released someone would reveal in an interview that it was now being handled by Scott Lobdell and Brett Booth because of schedule or whatever.
Still. This is a great redesign. Click through and read the details.
