(Thought Factory, 1977) An extremely rare original painting of the classic DC Comics superhero "Wonder Woman." Painted by the incredible Ron Kriss, the artwork features a more realistic depiction of the character at top, and a more traditional comic-panel style representation at the bottom. This original artwork was created and used in a popular series of collectible posters that were marketed by a partnership between Thought Factory and Bill Wallen, with this poster coming from Wallen's personal collection. The artwork is composed of primarily airbrush with some acrylic, and the bottom comic-panel area appears to be hand-colored with either colored marker or diluted paints. The character's face and the name "Wonder Woman" were both painted on separate sheets, then trimmed and applied over the main image. Measuring 37.75"x26.5" on sturdy artist's board, the original painting is in good condition with some minor expected wear from the production process, including a few small spots of discoloration and wear to the border and some fading to the color from age. Additionally, the artist board backing is itself adhered to a second art board for additional support. The Thought Factory superhero posters were very popular when they debuted in 1977, with surviving examples becoming difficult to find. This is the first time the original artwork for these exceptional posters has ever been offered for public sale, and beautifully represents the legacy of this iconic superhero.
