    Adam Hughes 52 #12 Complete 2-Page Story "The Origin of Wonder Woman" Original Art (DC, 2006). One of the masters of "Good Girl" comic art turns his significant talents to the "goodest" of Good Girls... Wonder Woman! In just two pages Mark Waid and Adam Hughes recap the origin of the amazing Amazon from Queen Hippolyta forming her out of clay, and getting the blessings of the Greek Gods, to an adult Diana defending the weak as Wonder Woman (with a cameo of a very ticked off and tied-up Cheetah). The whole thing is, well... wonderful, but the opening and closing panels are both just breath-taking! Rendered twice-up scale in ink over graphite on bright white Bristol board stock with an image area of 12.5" x 17.5". Rendered on large size 13" x 20" board, which is rare. Hughes draws on thin tracing paper these days, not art board such as this. Also rare is sequential Adam Hughes Wonder Woman art. Each page is signed with an "AH!" in the lower left margin. In Excellent condition.
