Wesley Willis—or at least a drawing of a character that looks and acts a lot like the late singer—has popped up in a recent issue of Wonder Woman as Milan, Wonder Woman’s half-brother. The issue, Wonder Woman #15, was written by the Chicago-based Brian Azzarello and features art by Cliff Chiang.
While it’s not explicitly spelled out that Milan is modeled after Willis, given the character’s affinity for head-butting both friends and enemies, his schizophrenic tendencies, and some very Willis-like language (he shouts “Rock on!" when good things happen, for instance), it’s not a stretch to just go ahead and say that Milan is Willis. Check out some of the art, as well as one of Willis’ out-there tracks, below.
