We had a great time at our very first Wondercon! We met some really interesting characters and I even got serenaded by a pair of fabulous adventure time cos players. This particular print did really well so I thought I’d post it on here, I don’t normally illustrate comic book characters but it was fantastic to see people connecting with this take on Wonder Woman. I’m happy that ladies who dropped by our booth were able to walk away from the convention with a reminder of how wonderful they are.
Here’s another infographic I did for HalloweenCostumes.com, this time illustrating the history of the emblem on Superman’s chest.
Until I researched this, I had no idea just how many variations the shield went through in its first five years, before they settled on the classic design that went mostly unchanged for over five decades.
My previous infographic (illustrating the evolution of Iron Man’s armor) can be seen here.
Somebody on Twitter was bitching about how they wished the Man of Steel chest emblem was more “historic” or something and I wanted to be like, “Son, which historic chest emblem do you mean?”

Because a post crossed my dash recently asking why we need to push for more representation in comic books and media in general. 50 years later, this man still tears up because in one panel, Peter Parker spoke to an unnamed black kid. That’s why we need representation.
