As a long time Valkyrie fan, I am adoring this artwork by A Distant Soil creator Colleen Doran for Girl Comics #2!  Brunnhilde is looking strong and statuesque here with a lovely crown of intricate design work adorning her.  Valkyrie is a formidable heroine and I believe this portrait does this stolid beauty justice.  The finished piece can be found on Colleen’s blog.  Fans of Valkyrie can read about her monthly in Secret Avengers, written by Ed Brubaker and drawn by Mike Deodato.  Check out Walter Simonson’s depiction of Valkyrie here.  I heartily recommend reading A Distant Soil on Colleen’s site. It’s a great read.
