Wendy meets Wendy

posted on June 8, 2021

When artist Thom Zahler sent over his first rough for the recent Wayback Wendy cover, I really liked the composition showing Wendy’s older self coming back through a time portal. However, since, in the strip, Ruby Lith and Mindy were talking about the paucity of older women in comic books, I wanted the older Wendy to be demonstrably older and wearing more age appropriate clothing.

When I got Thom’s second sketch, it was immediately green lit for another gorgeous Zahler/Atomik Komix cover.
