August 21, 2009: Amanda Conner Talks Supergirl "Wednesday Comics" Strip

Newsarama.com caught up with artist Amanda Conner to talk to her about her work illustrating the Supergirl comic strip in the weekly "Wednesday Comics" publication. Here's an excerpt from the interview...

    Q: Your strip in Wednesday Comics is pretty different from everyone else's - you're one of the few that is not referencing a classic genre or paying homage to the format. Why did you choose to present Supergirl the way you did?

    CONNER: Well, once I found out the lineup I was going to be with, it was hugely intimidating. I thought "This is so daunting that I don't think I can keep up with all those amazing people!" I knew I wasn't going to be able to do Joe Kubert or Kyle Baker, or Ryan Sook - and all those other guys who are all really amazing; So, I decided to do what I am really comfortable with. My angle was going to be to make everything disgustingly adorable and cute. It may be boastful of me, but I am really good at disgustingly cute! Although so is Kyle. Thank God he's not going with that. Honestly, I got all panicky and then I just figured I'd play to my strengths.
