This 48pg trade was my First Graphic Novella.

“Actress Brenda Kelly is Wonder Woman…at least in the weekly movie serials of Hollywood’s Golden Age. But as postwar America turns away from the threat of the Axis powers and declares a Cold War on a new enemy Communism Brenda soon finds both herself and the character she plays being used by Red-baiting politicians to further their own political careers while destroying the lives of innocent people. Among those accused of having Communist loyalties is Brenda’s screenwriter boyfriend, whose career has effectively been ended by the policy Brenda and Wonder Woman have helped to promote. Can even the so-called Wonder Woman save the man she loves?”

Done entirely with a Brush, the art on this book represents an intentional stylistic echo on my part of 40′s comic art and the drawing traditions of H.G. Peter’s original comic. Bernie Mireault & I worked closely to choose a colour palate for this book that captured the saturated colours of early comics, & the first Technicolor films that Brenda Kelly would have been dreaming of being the star of.

The original script would have called for a book that was several times longer to do justice to, and sadly had to be cut short due to preset page counts. The plot shows some odd brevity as a result, the missing development is missed. But despite that it reads well and I feel this book is an overall successes.
