It's my favourite of all the comic representations, Emilio Frejo did an amazing job. He runs rings around all those horrible sketch cards in the Unstoppable Cards sets.
He clearly had a lot of photo reference material - and you can often recognise the exact publicity still he used.
He tends, in the manner of all comic book artists, to make Diana curvier than in real life, and the clothes tighter.
The stories are short but quite entertaining, although not up to the plots we expect on screen - I guess that's why Big Finish are doing the comic book adaptations.

Love it! Makes really good use of the oblong shape and represents the dark undertone of the episode very well.

Exactly correct Ron.

This week we have a publicty still for the never finished "Invitation to a Killing", later remade as "Have Guns - Will Haggle" and featuring Jennifer Croxton - with the camera - who starred as Lady Diana Forbes-Blakeney in "Killer".

...tap, tap ... is this thing on?

This week's banner is from the fabulous series 1 episode, Girl on the Trapeze



I've tried to emulate the back-and-forth swing of the titles on the banner.
