I don't like the way Wonder Woman is drawn in the New 52.

#1 Edited by justforthecomments (40 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't know if it's just me, but i really don't like the art in the New 52 Wonder Woman comics.....  Like compared to Wonder Woman vol. 3 after the Infinite Crisis the art was pretty amazing.  And now...  I don't know how to describe it. But I do enjoy the art in the Justice League. Better yet I don't like Cliff Chiang's art of Wonder Woman, but i like Jim Lee's work.  But personally overall i think I LOVED Rachel and Terry Dodson's the best. :P Just throwing this out there because i noticed a decrease in art awesomeness...  But if any of you like it that's fine too!!  This is just what I think..

At first I didn't like it, but I have to say it has really grown on me.

I have to say that while I do not hate Jim Lee's art in Justice League I have to say I really like Cliff Chiang's work in Wonder Woman and think it is the better version of the character in the new 52. That being said I also think the characterization of Wonder Woman in  the solo title is better than what has been shown so far in Justice League.

I don't like the heavy outlines and the way Wonder Woman's body just seems cell shaded in comic form, if you can understand that.

It's very cartoonish, but if I look back at some of the people who drew WW in the past, it is pretty damn good.

I love the art in the new Wonder Woman. It's how she's drawn all tiny-waisted and waifish by Jim Lee in Justice League that bothers me.

love the way she's drawn in her book. hate how lee draws her in justice league.

Chiang draws her brilliantly. She doesn't look over-sexed with big boobs, but is still pretty. AND she doesn't look "white" in her book.

I don't love it, I don't hate it, I'm completely neutral to it.

Love the way Chiang draws Diana. Looks powerful and strong, but retains her beauty.

I have to say I dont really like it either. I have a hard time picking up a title if the art isnt very good and this is one of them.

There's a cerain artistry in the style he draws. My problem lies more in the way he illustrates her and the odd gloomy atmosphere I see all the time but I guess that's just the tone of her book.

First one I like a lot, streamlined, hips, curves, defined and overall great. But her second photo she looks so hulky, her body isn't very defined, chest looks more like her boobs combined into one and created the uniboob. Her face is pretty though that's a constant(except the manly shots when she was in Hades).

Not even gonna start with the pants that's just..no.

@jointron33:

WHAT? I TOTALLY disagree. Chiang draws her as the whitest white woman that's ever been created. That's because of the razor thin lips. They look like a slice of baloney folded in half. Real white women overdraw their lipstick and get collagen injections so they DON'T have lips like that. And please don't get me started on the broad shoulders, thick waist, overly long limbs and complete lack of curves (other than her breasts which appear to be mashed down under her chest-plate). Other people say she's not being sexualized, I say she's being purposefully DEsexualized.

I don't like the gloomy rural backgrounds either.

Gotta agree with Scorpio. Part of being Wonder Woman is the embodiment and empowerment of yenno..women. And part of that comes with femininity. Yes guys will notice her body and stuff but that's biological, you can't stop that, but she's classy, respected, and doesn't need to look more of a man to do so. If anything it just says women need to be more manly to be powerful. Not that I'm saying Chiang draws her purposely for those reasons.

I like both artists. They have their unique style and I guess each style works well in their respective comics.

A lot of the DC 52 costume redesigns seem to have focused on making them as gawky and graceless as possible.

Really? e_e you think this:

Is gawky and graceless?

It's more streamlined and and colors go together well especially the silver armored parts. It's nice.

Before it looked more like panty hoses with the billion stars but now it's more so a sleek armored leotard. Watchu talkin bout willis.

I agree the character is drawn way better in JL but the writing is great.

I thought the desert scene was effective with the drawing style that is used now

@Wboy: "this is gawky and graceless?"

Compared to some of Wonder Woman's earlier costumes, yes, yes it is.

And in this case, needlessly sexist -- her iconic spandex is replaced by a tackily chromed up and poorly colored metal teddy.

I adore Cliff Chiang. He is absolutely perfect for this book.

me too... and i really love the way he draws WW's face, and the best thing is each of his characters have a unique face which is really uncommon in female character arts by some other reputed artists... even the likes of Jim Lee and Ed Benes. Also his Wonder Woman has the same face in most of his panels, which is not the case in the JL books.

I love CLiff Chiang.He is an amazing artist and I think that he fits the book perfectly.

#29 Posted by SCORPIO_CASSADINE (739 posts) - - Show Bio

And that's one of the reasons the book doesn't fit with me. Chiang's Diana and Zola have the same face with different hair. They look like old fashioned Kewpie dolls with big eyes and cupid bow lips. The art is just not stylish or contemporary enough for me to find it aesthetically pleasing.

And oddly enough, when Chiang was on Green Arrow/Black Canary I really dug his stuff. Even his JMS WW Brave and the Bold issue was passable. As soon as WW #1 hit I started wondering when his style changed.

actually Cliff Chiang's distinctions of characters faces are far better than most artists...checkout Ed Benes and Jim Lee for instance

I don't like how she is drawn in the new 52.For me it is a bit (cartoonish)

I f*cking love it.

#34 Posted by ZEELLO (223 posts) - - Show Bio

I flipped through vol 1 and I thought it looked great. I think I keep thinking WW's costume logically would clash with the grisly and mystical (and perhaps unheroic) setting of the book yet amazingly I felt the opposite effect being achieved.

@Ms. Omega: See that is why Olivia Wilde should play Wonder Woman she kind of looks like her in this picture.

#36 Edited by LoganRogue24 (1187 posts) - - Show Bio

to me its a a streamline look to her old suit with some new bits added or tweaked.

I'd greatly prefer either of them to Chiang but Chiang is preferable to his horrible fill in artists.
