Published by PIE comic art, they asked yoji shinkawa (the artist behind metal gear solid) to draw the cover for the japanese release, and it's amazing!

Nice. Saw it was the Metal Gear Solid artist immediately.

I wonder how the movie will perform in Japan.

Shinkawa needs to make alt covers and posters for everything.
That poster he did for Pacific Rim was baller as hell.

It's unfortunate how many otherwise extremely talented artists fall victim to this. Jim Lee being one of the bigger examples I can think of.

It's probably this:



French edition cover:


It's a really great book. It collects the 40s and 80s origins as well as some important and celebrated WW stories. And it's on sale on comixology this week.

I really don't understand his appeal. He's alright, but I just don't find the samey nature of most of his work appealing.

I think it's awful tbh. I love his art and his original designs, but that's just one lazy take on Diana. It's just the same Meryl style design he has always drawn, with a sword, and there is barely any attempt to make armor look good rather than just being detailed filled into the skinny body frame. One of his lamer guest efforts.
