Sensation Comics, you may recall, is the digital-first Wonder Woman series that will feature diverse folk doing diverse stories about everyone’s favorite star-spangled Amazon. Digital comics will be collected into print issues every few months. So dropped into this rather barebones exclusive story about issue #3 is the stunning news that Gilbert Hernandez will be drawing a Wonder Woman story! And Sean E. Williams and fashion-y illustrator Marguerite Sauvage will be doing another!

SENSATION COMICS FEATURING WONDER WOMAN #3
Written by GILBERT HERNANDEZ and SEAN E. WILLIAMS
Art by GILBERT HERNANDEZ and MARGUERITE SAUVAGE
Cover by IVAN REIS and JOE PRADO

When Wonder Woman allows an other dimensional science-villain to capture her, she expects to swiftly deal with his android minions and save the day. But he’s able to brainwash her and that’s when things go haywire! Then, back on Earth, we share a rare moment from Diana’s rock-star days.


Can you guess which story is from Beto?

Andrew Wheeler got properly excited about this and offered some Gilbert art from Wonder Woman Day over the years.

Sauvage is also an exciting choice to draw Diana. (She recently scored the gig doing covers for Hinterkind, the Vertigo series.)

All behind this rather more typical Reis/Prado cover.

  1. Right -the ‘people’ that make the actual decisions for multi-national corps would never allow an *independent-type* creator work on something like being a permanent contributor for a title like Wonder Woman. The people who make the ultimate executive decisions at Marvel and DC do not care about sequential story telling -all they care about is sitting in traffic, being pretentious about brand names, making fun of people that cannot own a car, and sports -why would what they think as ‘creepy’ or ‘weird’ be considered quality work for a main stream character-based asset like Wonder Woman. Time/Warner will spend the bucks conditioning our brains to be aware of Wonder Woman, but they will not spend on publishing full-time new / or cutting edge / or insightful works of art to be represented as part of their main brand identities -instead we have to be engineered as *consumers*, and anything that instigates new thinking, would instigate new markets, as new markets mean they would have to do actual work in their Marketing and Advertising, and Creative departments to keep up on actual human supply/demand. Time/Warner is not in the Sequential Story Telling businees -they are in the *convince us consumers to spend going on $4.50 for a comic book* business. And we keep enabling them by spending… How long until they out-source their creative department entirely to India or China?
