Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Amanda Conner started out in comics after working as an illustrator for New York ad agencies. However, loving comic books and cartooning the most, Amanda found work at Archie, Marvel and Claypool Comics early in her career. She's probably best known for her work on Vampirella for Harris Comics, as well as Painkiller Jane, CODENAME KNOCKOUT, BIRDS OF PREY, and the creator-owned books Gatecrasher and The Pro (with Jimmy Palmiotti and Garth Ennis).

It's just not that good of a story, and could have fit better elsewhere.
DJ Joe Sixpack
Bottom line; I am disappointed with the description and with the product in my hand, however it still gets 4 stars because Amanda Conner's art is that good.
A. Baugher
For the most part, the stories weren't too heavy, and the artwork was perfect for it.

I was expecting an art book about the process and with art at various stages of completion, sketches, some full page final pieces and maybe some never before seen pieces. What I got was some comics collected into a hard cover.

I am more likely to purchase an 300+ page art book. I am far less likely to purchase this collection of comics, some of which I already own.

The actual contents of this book are not even listed here. I will do my best to list them for other potential buyers.

According to the inside flap of the dust jacket:

Superman: Lois Lane #1
Secret Origins 80-Page Giant #1 (short story)
Joker Last Laugh Secret Files #1 (short story)
Birds of Prey #47-49
JSA Classified #1-4
Supergirl #12
Wonder Woman #600 (short story)

And a few pages of art in the back.

Bottom line; I am disappointed with the description and with the product in my hand, however it still gets 4 stars because Amanda Conner's art is that good. I just wish there was more of it in this book.

From the Amazon description comparing it to Adam Hughes Cover Run book I was expecting this to be a book of Amanda Connor art from her work in DC comics. Rough sketches and pencils leading to the final art piece. This is in fact a collection of previously released comic books that she did the art on. I actually already have most of the issues in the collection and would not have purchased this if I had known. It's a sensationalized Trade for the most part. I'm giving it 3 Stars just for the fact it contains Amanda's work but it really should get a 1 from the description misleading it as an "art of" book. If you really want a book of her art and lot's of interview material from her buy "The Art of Amanda Connor" instead.

I too thought this would be an art book of Amanda Conner's work. Instead, you get a sampling of her comics from 1998 to 2010. Its neat to see how the quality of her work has kept improving over 12 years, but if you are already a fan of hers, you probably won't find anything new here. Otherwise, if you have been away from comic books like me, its a great way to enjoy the work of very talented artist because you get to also see her non-Power Girl comics. The cover and page quality are top notch, so it would be a nice addition to your shelf.

My only problem is with Amazon's description. Besides the script for one of the Wonder Woman comics, I don't think there is single word from the artist herself in the book, which is disappointing as I would have loved to read the stories behind her illustrations or her experiences in the industry. In that regard, this book is definitely NOT on the level of Adam Hughes's wonderful Cover Run. There is an 8-page gallery of covers and sketches at the end, but they squeezed four of them onto each page so it not a great showcase of Conner's talent. Compared to other DC collections (such as Power Girl), you miss out on each story's cover art. I know they are probably done by a different artist, but without them, each of the included stories feel a little incomplete.

Overall, 4-stars because of the quality of the book itself and because it's Amanda Conner. Just don't expect anything new.

Great disappointment. I was expecting an Art book. The book is a collection of stories that feature Amanda as the artist. What made things worse for me was that I already own these stories as single issue comic books. DC has ripped off it's customers once again

I was expecting a coffeetable style art collection, ala her IDW collection. What this is is a collection of Amandas minis and one shots done for DC over the years, some of which is collected in other books. Still worth it for Amandas art, as well as the previuosly uncollected stories. sadly missing however is her Codename Knockout contribution.

So, I'm a big fan of Amanda Conner and when I saw this book I was expecting more than a small compilation of assorted DC books that she partook in. If you like Amanda Conner's art or a fan of hers, you already own everything that's already in the book. There is no original content.

Amanda Conner is by far one of the forces that have made comics enjoyable for me, and every detail on her work is amazing, even backgroung characters tell a story, plus this one comes with a nice collection of her sketchwork, very nice for the price.

Disappointing! Primarily a sampling of stories and art Conner has done. Except for the cool foreword by Darwyn Cooke, there was no information about Conner herself, her background, her perspective, or the process she uses when creating or drawing a comment. The product title is very misleading and leaves you quite disappointed. I kept turning the pages to find text, personal stories, or biographical info and, alas, there was none.
