Wonder Woman by Colleen Doran

January 7, 2021|In General

For the better part of 40 years, Colleen Doran has had a diverse career in comics, encompassing her own epic saga A Distant Soil, assignments from publishers both large and small, and collaborating on graphic novel projects with writers at the top of the field.

She’s also notable for sharing her thoughts on the business and her experiences in it through her site and Patreon.

Recently, she shared a couple of Wonder Woman commissions via social media and I thought it would be interesting to use them to show some of the different examples of trade dress the comic has gone through.
