Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This handsome volume collects more than 150 of the illustrations Hughes produced in his 20-plus years as DC's cover specialist. Although launching his DC career with the Justice League of America, his forte has been female heroes/villains, most notably Wonder Woman/Catwoman, respectively, with Power Girl and some others added for ballast. Hughes melds athletic with voluptuous—his Wonder Woman especially is a knockout combination of buff and babelicious (there's a humorous cover of the current steely, sinewed glamazon bulging out of her American flag undies, thrust face to shocked face with her 1940s butter-muscled counterpart in bloomers). Rough sketches and alternate takes accompany each completed illustration along with a caption by the artist providing background on how he approached the project, including, e.g., his use of Photoshop in several works and his often customized color schemes. A fun bonus is the jacket illustration of Catwoman stealing comics sporting Hughes's covers and the cover blurbs of his subjects' alternate identities praising the book. VERDICT Hughes fans and comics heads who like their supers smoking hot are the first-string readers for this, but those generally interested in comics art and even digital art also will enjoy it.—Mike Rogers, Library Journal
