This is from a reprint of an early Wonder Woman story. It sat on my computer for a long time. It may have the smallest dots of anything I’d posted up to that point, and a lot more illustration. I was reluctant to make the artist’s contribution greater than those of the inker, colorist, separator, and printer.

But it’s a beautiful image, the poisonous green and the paper as smoke. Also the gas-masked women in horizontally-striped one-piece bathing suits.
