Justice League by JPRart Justice League by JPRart
Here's a new picture that I've been working on.

I'm a big fan of DC's new 52, especially Justice League by Geoff Johns and Jim Lee, its fantastic! ...and I thought it would be fun to do an homage to the classic Jim Lee cover for X-men #1 featuring the members of the Justice League.

Let me know what you think!

Hah! This is awesome. I recently bought a re-print of the classic X-men comic, AND the new Justice League (mostly because I love Jim Lee). Great job combining both together! Very clever idea.

:heart::heart:Excellent work!:heart::heart:

I'm not sold on the new look. I'm one of the older school fans of DC comics and I saw no reason to change what they were doing. But that's the nature of things: change when needed. And people often do not like change. To be honest, the new look makes me think back to the days of the 1990s when they were trying holographic covers for novels. All flash and no substance. It also bothers me of the personality changes across the board where they are seeming more like thugs than heroes.

Perhaps I'm only one of a few who feel this way ...

If the fans appreciate where DC is going, then they are doing well and will continue.

I'm pretty sure there are more than a few who feel this way. Somehow DC's sales numbers are still high with this event*. But I still see many posts by others who feel the same as you and me about all these unnecessary changes to these characters. We'll see what happens by the end of the year after 52 weeks have gone by.

That said, this artwork is fantastic!

*I call it an event because recent events in the Justice League book show that there are forces trying to return the universe to the way it was, hinting that this was all planned to be temporary depending on its reception.

Indeed! I'm not a big fan of Jim Lee's work, but I have to admit that this piece is rather exceptional. I just have a lot of problems with why they did what they did.

It also could be that I'm running a lot of superhero games (Villains and Vigilantes, Palladium Heroes, and soon DC Adventures) and I'm watching the younger players (the twenty somethings) create more of the "grimmer and grittier heroes". I had to explain why generally heroes don't kill and this upset a few, saying that it would be easier. I told them that I will not force you not to kill, but understand these actions will have consequences. No one has pushed this with me. Not yet. :)

I was looking all over for Batman for a while until I noticed he was smack dab in the front and center! He kind of camouflaged.
Very nicely done. I love your Aquaman.
