Wonder Woman: The True Amazon Reimagines Diana's Past

She doesn’t occupy the story for long, but I couldn’t help but be fascinated with young Diana in Wonder Woman. The only child on an island of adults, her childhood would be unlike any other in history. What would that be like?

DC Comics Art Academy Featuring Jill Thompson

Welcome to the DC Comics Art Academy, a series of art tutorials recorded at Comic-Cons throughout 2015 and featuring many of the gifted and unique artists working for DC today. In today's installment, celebrated illustrator Jill Thompson shows how she creates comics using her signature watercolors by drawing a character for which she's become known—The Sandman. Utilizing tools and processes not typically used in comic art, it's a truly unique demonstration caught at last year's San Diego Comic-Con. 

NOTE: Unfortunately, due to technical difficulties the opening of this art demo wasn't recorded, but we felt it was still worth sharing what we captured.
