Colleen Doran’s Wonder Woman Concept Art

Posted by Grey Saturday, August 6, 2011

Ahead of DC's world-ending "New 52" initiative, let's take a look at one of an abandoned vision of Wonder Woman.

J. Michael Straczynski's run on Wonder Woman was probably doomed right from the start for various reason, many being the same ones with his absurd "Grounded" arc for Superman. With Straczynski leaving the title prematurely, one had to wonder: Apart from the new costume designed by Jim Lee featuring the pants & jacket-wearing Wonder Woman since issue #600 last August, what could have been in store for Princess Diana?

As it turned out, another costume change.

Writer/artist Colleen Doran, who brought us the brilliant A Distant Soil, has recently posted a concept art of a distinctly different Wonder Woman on her blog. Doran has explained that the artwork was produced by her when Straczynski, during his run of Wonder Woman, approached her to developed a more fantasy-oriented version of Wonder Woman.

While we would never know where this could have lead us with Straczynski's premature run, this is an interesting what if scenario for the Wonder Woman fans to sink into.

From the words of Colleen Doran herself:

Some time ago, J Michael Straczynski approached me about developing a new look for Wonder Woman for a possible, more fantasy-oriented version of the comic series. Obviously, this did not happen. But JMS gave me permission to post the sketches. This was a pencil doodle that I whipped up in color in Photoshop. I’ll be making some of the sketches available for sale over the next few weeks and will post as they become available.

I’ve worked on Wonder Woman a number of times in the past and really enjoyed it. I was a big fan of the George Perez run in the 1980′s.

I don’t know if I’d have had time to do a WW project anyway, considering my schedule is kind of horrible for at least another six months, but you never know. Hope you enjoy the sketches.

Probably dumb posting these during San Diego Comic Con. Doubt if anyone will see them, LOL!
