2012 “JLA by George Perez” Wonder Woman Commission

Aric Shapiro is a comic art collector with the good taste to pursue a series of Justice League of America member spotlight commissions by the always incredible George Pérez. An online acolyte of Pérez, Mitch Ballard, then colored some of the pieces with Shapiro's consent.
"Wonder Woman by the greatest artist to ever draw her!!!!! This piece is a huge trip down memory lane and now proudly hangs in my daughter's room. Brilliant is an understatement. Thanks to Mark for picking this up for me"
Pérez's uncolored original can be viewed here.

Seeing as I've featured a lot of posts spotlighting the art of Brian Bolland (who only provided covers for about 3½ of the Amazing Amazon's lowest selling years,) and comparatively few for Pérez (who rebooted the character, drew her comics for a couple of years, and wrote them for five,) I continue to swim against the current of Princess Diana fandom. I'm glad Pérez stuck with his own nifty Post-Crisis costume, but then he gives Diana that weird Ross Andru-ish face that started cropping up in his work in the late 90's. I'm not a huge fan of the moonfaced maiden Pérez invented in the mid-80s either, so I guess I'd rather set the Wayback Machine to Pérez's flirtations with the character during the Bronze Age, back when she had an Invisible Plane and Steve Trevor as a love interest and wasn't just Supergirl in a bathing suit working at a Greek Whataburger.
