“Marguerite Sauvage’s Wonder Woman and the Slowly Changing Face of Comic Book Fashion”

At Comics Alliance, Juliet Kahn writes about clothing and costumes in comics, getting Wonder Woman right and Marguerite Sauvage’s work in Sensation Comics #7. “The slightest hint of a damn given to the fashion featured in a comic book makes it immediately more immersive, more affecting, more resonant—because suddenly, its characters look more like real people. Suddenly, the reader has gained insight through a new layer of meaning. Fashion is characterization and world building and visual design all in one. Ignoring it isn’t just lazy—it’s actively detrimental to the work as a whole. It is a fundamental, non-negotiable aspect of storytelling.” (Thanks, Mark!)
