From the secret files of the Justice League!

Last week we talked a little about Superheroes and their chest hair. At first I had a picture of the Batman in mind and I even got as far as doing a little sketch. But the more I thought about those wonderful DC heroes the more I wanted to draw a team. So this weeks post is the original Justice League of America (minus Wonder Woman) in the group's locker room. If this were a contest I'd ask you, dear reader, to name the members from left to right...but it's not a contest so I won't.

Please enjoy!


Do I have to mention that all characters are copyright DC comics?

p.s. For some reason the image is not posting so that you can click on it to view it larger...or at least it isn't doing that for me. So here's a link to a larger version: http://www.wire-fu.com/j-bone/JLA_LockerRoom_clr.jpg

Oh, and great work. I enjoy the relaxed but well done feel!

Thanks, Nick. The smartass in me wants to say that you got one right! I don't see any Batman *wink-wink*

Wow. If this is what JLA looked like I'd be buying it every month again.

Many thanks, Greg. My memory is always fuzzy but have we ever met at conventions? I know your name but that's most likely because I've seen it around on comic sites and blogs (Fanboy Rampage?)

If anyone has requests I fancy I'd be willing to tackle 'em. Nothing dirty, though. Must maintain my purity!

I think I'd like to see Spider-Man if you get a chance!

Sweet! You're really on a roll with these! I'm totally grooving on your off-register ben-day dot mastery! I love how you worked in all those nice little story-telling touches like flash's blowdrying and aquaman's showering.

For your non-contest: Aqua-guy, Batusi, Martian Martini, HJ, BA and the Superguy (love the monogram!). Do I win a non-prize?

Nick - I'm working on a Spidey even as I procrastinate from my real job :)

Cho - Martian Martini! I thought you of all people would give me the secret identity names of the locker room crew! (Actually you did with Hal and Barry). So you win part of the Batusi-a-go-go-prize!

Hey J!

Yeah, we met once at SDCC waaaaay back in 2002... the only reason I remember the year is I have a lovely MUTANT TEXAS-themed sketch from you in my "wine" book. :)

The name's probably familiar for writing reviews for iComics, as well as being one of the administrators on the Oni boards. (I like to think I'm the mean one but don't tell Jamie. Ever since he stopped being EiC he thinks HE can be the ultra mean one!)

Nick said...

Just so everyone is solid on this:

L->R: Arthur Curry/Orin, Bruce Wayne, "J'onn J'onzz", Hal Jordan, Barry Allen, Kal-El/Clark Kent

:)

Hey Greg,
I knew we'd probably met. And the ONI board I'd near forgotten about. Now that I found blogging message boards have vanished from my bookmarking!

Thanks for coming 'round to my blog!
