Cross-Over Appeal #1

art by Yanick Paquette and studios (?) Slip! & Blond

What If.....a couple of  wild and powered groups 
of teenagers--membership of five, similar 
personalities, similar dynamics, but everything else
about them at odds--were to have a meet-up?

I'd wish for art by Carlos Pacheco and Steve 
Lightle....and let the magic explode the heads of 
fanboys everywhere!

Longing for those Long-Johns Days of the JSA

In case you haven't watched the latest season of "The Flash" on the CW,
there's a new Flash in town!  The incredible John Wesley-Shipp debuted 
his doppleganger, the real Jay Garrick of Earth 3, a.k.a. the Flash of that
Not much else has been revealed  about Earth 3 at this point, but fans are
anxiously anticipating more info and appearances next season! Since I'm
a huge Justice Society of America fan, as well as John Wesley-Shipp fan,
I thought I'd do a little fan-passion casting!

Check it out on my pinterest page! Justice Society of America: CWTV

Comic Book Characters Celebrate LGBTQ Pride Month!

Don't have a name for where this originated from...obviously most 
or all is clipped from original art sources (Golden Age "Police 
Comics" for the Firebrand and friend piece, "Adventure Comics" for
Sandman and Sandy. etc.) 

Certainly not all are actually gay, but it's an interesting acknowledgement 
of the invisibility of gay and lesbian characters in comics for so many 
decades. Solidarity is a great thing; allies are always welcome at a 
Pride Parade!

JSA Goodness with Steve Lightle

The Justice Society of America:
Comics' first, greatest, and most patriotic
super-hero team. Part of the Greatest Generation,
these DC Comics icons are proudly remembered
as part of America's World War II fighting forces.

Veteran artist Steve Lightle did these incredible pieces 
of art to showcase these classic characters and experiment
with a simpler art style that was an expression of that time period.
The results before you, exquisitely rendered.

You can seethe love and respect for these characters 
in each print!
Fans are already clamoring for Steve to be given a shot
at drawing a regular book featuring the Justice Society.
And with DC's announcement of "Rebirth," there seems 
to be some hope it could happen.

Rebirth is bringing back the possibility of stories
and characters from other eras, other
continuity. This allows the door to the 
original Earth 2 team, the Justice Society of America, to be
opened. If you would like to see this project come
to pass, let DC Comics know!
