DC Women Kicking Ass

Thoughts, pictures, reviews and other stuff about the women in comics who kick ass. This is a feminist site. Deal with it.
"... just a dreadful little site that just basically compiles lists." - poster/DC Comics forum
"... provides a much-needed voice that is not often heard on traditional comic sites." - Wired's Geek Dad
... she's pretty amazingly ignorant of comics outside of the Batverse and some recent Wonder Woman, and seems pretty clueless about the way the industry works. That and she doesn't write that well at all." anonymous poster, Dreamwidth

Cliff Chiang on New Wonder Woman Character Designs

Today at NYCC during the panel DCE: From Concept to Page Cliff Chiang previewed the look for three new characters in Wonder Woman. 

No big suprised given the teaster at the end of Wonder Woman 12 is Orion. Chiang talked about how they tried to keep some of the Kirby design elements but modernize it. They ran into some issues with one version that reminded people of Ant Man. Chiang’s response? “We think Ant Man is a great design.”

Azzarello suggested that he have a racing jacket which did not have fans at first. “We didn’t want Superboy in the 90s”. 

The final design is on the right.

Chiang also showed off the design for a new character “Sirocca”. He spoke about how her hair became a key part of the character design. This character will be showing up in the next issue and according to Chiang, “she floats a little.”

The final design is for Dionysus. Azzarello and Chiang said that traditionally, as Bacchus, he’s shown as jolly character. As they looked to modernize the character Chiang said they thought of “this guy who has eaten and drinken everything” and reimagined him as thei “weird Japanese hipster” with a fox belt and fox teeth.

Chiang also walked through his 0 issue and I found it interesting that while many people thought he was channeling Kanigher’s Wonder Woman in the opening, Chiang said he was actually thinking of an old Thor comic.
