As soon as I heard the first rumours about DC's WEDNESDAY COMICS, I thought, hey, that's got to be Mark Chiarello editing that. It just had that stamp, that cross of maverick thinking, extremely good taste and the faint whiff of classicism. And now the story is going overground (see here and especially here), confirming my first thought. Great - this is the first in DC's cycle of experiments with the weekly format that I'm actually interested in. More of that European love of anthology formats, I suppose.
Anyway, not amongst all the big names dropped in the first wave of publicity for the weekly is friend-of-this-blog Ben Caldwell. He's working on a Wonder Woman story for it, and has sent along these two little teasers for the project. Great to see Ben getting such a high profile gig: he's a great stylist, and here's hoping this breaks him into the big leagues. And that colour guide gives us a glimpse at the rather glorious format DC are using for the project. Big comics = the future.
