Cover page for Sensation Comics featuring:
Wonder Woman (Issue No. 1)
My final point refers to the distinctive art style of this action comic. All characters are created in a realistic way which is juxtaposed to the fantasy diegetic world of the narrative. Wonder Woman’s muscle structure is very prominent, her facial structure and hair resembles a real human being.
This is the perfect example because it is contrasted by the fantasized narrative and background of this particular panel. We can tell by the twirling lines that are coming out of the movement of her arms that it implies she is flying off from this scene of action.
The whole scene is a part
of the diegetic world because it works in sequence with the comic’s narrative.
The overly dramatized background plays with the unreal image of Wonder Woman
flying off. With this in mind, everything that is going on behind her,
(including the lines of motion and background) contrast the realism of her physical
Overall, this was a really cool comic to start off with and I’m excited to read the next issue. It has a lot of cool aspects to it and what I love about it most is that the colours really jump out at you. It helps to have some background knowledge on the superheroes in general because there is a lot of intertextuality throughout this comic. It always references back to other superheroes that we have no doubt heard of through the media and the film adaptations on screen. Looking forward to hear what you guys have to say!
