Ben Caldwell on Paradise Island
It’s no secret that Ben Caldwell’s a big fan of Wonder Woman. Between his Wonder Woman story in Wednesday Comics and his awesome, but unpublished, pitch for a Wonder Woman manga, his love for the character is kind of famous.
So it was cool that after I wrote that screed last month on what makes Wonder Woman tick, Ben and I exchanged a few emails, one of which included the above pages from his sketchbook. It’s from another concept he was considering, but ultimately decided not to pitch: a series of children’s books about Paradise Island. My heart breaks a little knowing that it won’t become a real series, but it sure is fun to imagine what it would have been like.
