Signing: Liam Sharp at The Escapist (July 2)

sharp-wonderwomanDC fans are chomping at the bit to see how the company’s characters will fare following “rebirth.” However, perhaps none more so than Wonder Woman who saw significant changes made to her origin story during the New 52 initiative. Anticipation was high but after the title dropped this past Wednesday it appears writer Greg Rucka landed the invisible jet to the satisfaction of the critical flight tower. Helping Rucka to lasso the character in this first issue were artists Matthew Clark and Liam Sharp. Sharp will continue, along with Nicola Scott, as a regular artist on the title. If I understand the alternating issue system the even issues will feature Scott as the artist helping Rucka tell a “year one” story. The odd numbered issues feature the pencils of Sharp telling a modern Wonder Woman tale. Right? I know someone will correct me if I’m wrong. Comics are confusing.

Sharp will be at The Escapist Comics, 3090 Claremont Street in Berkeley, on July 2 starting at 3 p.m.

The artist has a long history in the comics industry having worked on iconic characters such as Judge Dredd, The X-Men, Batman, Superman, Spider-Man and others. In recent years, his become an industry innovator as one of the founders of Berkeley-based Madefire. The company has a unique publishing model.
