A League Of Their Own!


The double-page poster shot below of the 1970's Justice League of America is perhaps my all-time favorite image of the team. Here we see handsome heroes gathered for noble purposes to protect mankind. Here we see a team of heroes who are for the most part genial and friendly with one another, who overcome differences of origin and background and perspective to work together for the greater good.

(Terry Austin & Dick Giordano)

There's no "action" in this shot, only people between crisis points taking time to deal with the day-to-day of life. This poster says these are regular people.

These are heroes.

I found this wonderful scan here

Dick Giordano is credited with the great covers to this over-sized classic.

  2. One of the oddest things about it, is that Martian Manhunter is featured so prominently. He was almost completely absent from the League during the 70's, but gets his due in this great poster shot.

  3. I love this image also! Great artwork, and I love the JLA Satellite Era. I agree that it's nice to see heroes that get along, act like heroes, and are treated like heroes. I would hope that heroes are people we could look up to and aspire to be like. Anyway, long live the Satellite Era!
