cheetah

for the 99.9% of you who don't know, cheetah is one of WWs oldest foes. the "original" cheetah wore a head-to-toe cheetah outfit with ears and a tail, the newer cheetah is basically a sexy (or creepy, depending on your point of view) were-cat. obviously i didn't go either route, opting for a look that might be favored by a villain who wasn't actually a cartoon or a porn star. cheetah is a wealthy, ruthless socialite who engages in sensational crimes for thrills.* but this time her crimes might be bigger than she realized....

i had more to write about cheetah, but then i realized most people probably don't care. and i am sleepy.





*sound familiar?

Your thoughtful vision of the WW mythos is, of course, too good to stick.

This reminds me of that Miles Davis album. What was it again? "Kind Of Bleu"?

Wow these a magnificent. But I got to ask. Is it easier for you to draw men or women? Because I don't know if its because you are doing WW, but I've been seeing more drawings of women lately.

I'm a HUGE fan of Wonder Woman and Cheetah! Don't sell the character short. She's been around for like 60 years!!! GREAT job! Can't wait!

Always like when creators re-think the classic characters. Looking forward to this when it comes out.
