Wonder Woman v1 #199, 1972 - In a superhero comic notorious for its frequent bondage covers, Jeff Jones brings his own illustrative interpretation. A masked executioner looks on while a powerless Wonder Woman anxiously awaits her fate. The cover design suffers from too much text, but Jones' mastery of light and shadow adds a quiet sophistication rarely seen in comics. The softness of his rendering also seems to suggest a more feminine tone. Other artists in this issue include Don Heck, Dick Giordano and Ross Andru (reprint). This is number 1 of 2 Wonder Woman issues with Jones art and/or covers. See today's posts, more Wonder Woman or Jones issues. See also this blog's Jones checklist.
