Welcome, my comic collecting cohorts, to another episode of Comic Cover Of The Week, and once again we bask in the illuminating magnificence of Jenny Frison’s incredible artistic talent.
DC Comics’ Wonder Woman Rebirth series has been a revelation since its 2016 relaunch, the twice monthly title has been one of the most beautifully crafted and emotionally absorbing runs in Diana’s long and varied history. Enhancing Greg Rucka’s initial story arc were the vivacious visuals courtesy of Liam Sharp and Nicola Scott, with each and every panel a masterpiece in its own right.
Rucka’s epic “Truth and Lies” saga came to a close in issue #25 after its award winning run, with the initial team of superstar creators leaving the book to move onto other projects for DC. And though the sacred duties for guiding our favourite Amazon warrior Princess have now fallen into the capable hands of Shea Fontana and Mirka Andolfo, one of the original artistic architects is still onboard with the title, the fantastic Jenny Frison.
Jenny has been the variant cover artist for Wondy’s rebirth since issue #7, taking over duties from Frank Cho who sensationally quit after apparent ‘artistic differences’ with series writer Greg Rucka. Frison’s variant covers have been breathtaking, beautifully rendered paragons of artistic endeavour and this month’s issue is yet another paradigm of grandeur, and quite possibly my favourite piece from the talented artist yet.
Wonder Woman #27 continues the “Heart Of The Amazon” tale and finds someone close to Diana being the architect behind the recent attacks on her and her friends… but what has this person learned about her powers that she never even knew herself?
Wonder Woman Rebirth #27 is available at your local comic-book emporium right now.
The Truth is finally laid bare before Diana, in this enthralling last instalment of Greg Rucka and Liam Sharp’s mythological masterpiece ‘The Lies’. This issue marks the sad departure of Liam Sharp’s astounding artwork, as he moves on to other projects for DC Comics, with Bilquis Evely taking over artistic duties for issues #24 and #25.
“The conclusion to Diana’s search for the truth takes her on a journey into darkness, but the price of understanding may be one sacrifice too many for Wonder Woman…”
Sensational scribe Greg Rucka’s run on Wonder Woman Rebirth has been astounding, his alternating storylines have offered up some of the most exceptional tales of Amazonian ancestry since the great George Perez. Alongside Greg have been two of comicdom’s most prolific and talented artists, Liam Sharp and Nicola Scott, with both wowing us on a monthly basis with their vivacious visuals and astonishing attention to detail, making each and every issue a literal masterpiece.
Making every month a pricey one for this particular comic-book collector are Jenny Frison’s absolutely beautiful variant covers, they are so resplendently gorgeous, that I have literally no choice but to purchase them alongside the regular covers which feature Liam and Nicola’s equally scintillating cover imagery.
Wonder Woman Rebirth #23 is available at your local comic-book emporium right now.
