Black Canary & Wonder Woman by Stjepan Sejic

Stjepan Sejic draws some beautiful women and excels at dark fantasy characters and themes, which is why he has done such killer work for Top Cow over the last couple years.  That might also be why I think he renders such an amazing Wonder Woman.  She's muscular and powerful without losing her beauty or femininity.  Most importantly, she looks like she doesn't need a battle axe or sword to win a war.

His Black Canary is interesting in this image in that I'm not sure I've ever seen her wear a top exactly like that.  It looks a little like her Brightest Day with her bulkier leather jacket replaced by a form-fitting biker jacket with fastens instead of zipper.  Either way, I like it, particularly the shiny buckle or button at her throat, which reminds me of the canary that used to adorn her choker in the Golden Age stories.

Check out more of Sejic's work at his DeviantArt page.


  1. I must say Wonder Woman is my all-time favourite female superhero, next to the great Black Canary of course!
    I absolutely adore Princess Diana, and often contribute to many blogs related to her. Wish she and Dinah would team-up more often.

  2. Oh, I like Wonder Woman more than Black Canary, too! I might have started a WW blog if there weren't already so many good ones, especially Frank's at

    I think my favorite Dinah/Diana moment was their sparring session in the early issues of Gail Simone's BoP run.

  3. Love the style, especially how he draws faces. Black Canary looks a bit like Kristen Bell here, which I find intriguing.

  4. Yeah, I can see the Kristen Bell similarity. Interesting. She wouldn't be my pick for a live-action Canary, but Dinah could do worse.
