Yeah. Wanda's supposed to look like this:http://www.erfworld.com/book-1-archive/?px=%2F028.jpg
There's nothing else in the new art that I dislike, but every time I see Wanda, she looks so different from how she's supposed to look, it totally jars me out of the story.
I think the look is supposed to be unsettling to us readers. If that is the case, it succeeded and I love it. She has a major creepy vibe going on with her.
I don't think this is a new permanent look for Wanda. I think it's battle gear, like when Stanley wore his KISS outfit into battle. He reverted to his normal look as soon as the battle was over.
It's not what she's wearing or her hairdo. I don't care if she changes that. It's that she looks nothing like Wanda; not her face, or her body, or her demeaner, or anything. There's nothing about her that's recognizable; first time we saw her, the only reason anyone was even able to figure out it was her was the pliers. Whenever someone talks about Wanda, I picture Wanda, and then they show a picture of someone completely different, and it's really jarring.
In general, I think the new art is really good, and they really captured Stanly, and Parson, and Ansom, and all the other main character really well, as well as minor ones like the Archeons. Wanda, though, is just not right.
