The sequel to 2017’s “Wonder Woman,” “Wonder Woman 1984,” got a new teaser trailer Friday, but chatter about “Wonder Woman 1984” isn’t all about the movie. The DC Comics superhero will be getting a comic book tie-in as well, and if you haven’t picked up a comic book in a while, “variant covers” are a thing now to get collectors to buy more copies of the same title.
DC seems to have teamed up with Rooster Teeth comics and let illustrator Robin Eisenberg draw one of the variant covers, and DC says there’s only one word to describe it: rad.

I can think of a hundred better words than rad. Most of them aren't suitable for public utterance.

Made from clay, in the image of Gods, blessed to be a perfect Amazon….and this is what you do to her?
THIS is not a warrior.

This cover gave me diarrhea.

Remember when you had to know how to draw before you could work in comics?

Is this a joke?

😂😂😂 I LOVE how the 'artist' used only one line-width in the whole image. Also how each of her tights are of a similar size as her waist. And no matter how fat she gets, her breast size will always be an A. And the purplish-gray skin tone makes her sooo non-problematic.

This might be the ugliest cover we've ever gotten, thanks.

Huh. I always thought you had to be good at art and faithful to source material in order to work for DC Comics.
Guess I was wrong.

Imagine buying the book and they only have that variant cover left 🤣

An absolute misrepresentation of the character.

Why is DC trying to not sell comics?
— John Joseph Ball King Toad Inc. (@Comicartmaster1) August 8, 2020
I see that the standards for drawing skills have dropped significantly in mainstream comic industry. 🤮

That does not look like something that I would want to buy. I question who would want to buy it.

.@ATT please just shut this embarrassment of a company down. They have no respect for the characters nor their audience. License out the characters to people that actually care.

What the hell is this. For a mainstream comic book company this cover even as a variant is lazy and uneventful. I could do better than this even if I was plastered drunk.

Please tell me this was the winner of some kid's fan art contest who drew their mom as Wonder Woman and not something that anyone actually paid for.

More like Wonder-Bread Woman.

Damn, we're basically one step away from using stick figure fridge art, aren't we? How the mighty have fallen, DC.

Is this a first draft or something?

Wonder Woman was made from clay by the gods to be perfect. This body meets no one's definition of perfection. Even as a depiction of a larger woman it's a failure, as no woman with hips that massive could have barely-pubescent cleavage.

I mean if you can’t draw people you could have just used a stock photo of Gal Gadot.

Where’s Wonder Woman?

The few people who can appreciate this level of art will happily snap it up.
