I was at HeroesCon a few years back and ran into Jill Thompson. “Whatcha working on, Jill?” I asked. She said it was secret, but showed me a page of art with an island on it. So I guess that Jill Thompson’s Wonder Woman project has been a badly kept “Secret” for a while. However on FB yesterday she cleared up what the project is and even gave it a name:
hMy upcoming Wonder Woman Graphic Novel is a stand alone story written and illustrated by me. My letterer is Jason Arthur. It is set in my own personal continuity. Not Earth 1. Not any established DC place. Grant Morrison is not involved. He has his own thing. This one is All made up by me. All written by me and all painted by me. The title of the story is called The Very Selfish Princess and I hope you love it as much as I do! Check with DC for the release date!
It is safe to say this project has been in the works for a long time, but one thing is certain, it will be gorgeous when its done! It also fits in well with the whole “super heroes for girls” initiative DC announced yesterday. More Wonder Woman!
