Darwyn Cooke and The Fifty

I have loved this piece since I bought it at the first Wonder Woman Museum auction (then Wonder Woman Day and now Women of Wonder day I think).

Darwyn Cooke Wonder Woman

It is a blue pencil piece but was good enough to be published in The Absolute New Frontier. That was after I bought it, hehe. It really captures everything great about Darwyn's rendition of this classic character. I love the thickness of the female form, the unabashed proud warrior aspect, and the killer costuming. It is just a wonderful piece.

So it was never a doubt about it making The Fifty. What was a surprise was the ranking I gave it. I changed the rankings around a bit when this one went in. So here we go with the latest list.
