SAID IT: “Drawing Wonder Woman isn’t just drawing a comic, it’s drawing an icon-the most famous and recognizable female superhero in the world,” exclaims artist Liam Sharp. “To get to draw her in her 75th year, with a new storyline scribed by no less than Greg Rucka, makes this without doubt the most important drawing gig of my 30 years in comics.”
