JLA goes punk (move over Bono, Spider-Man)

Remake/Remodel: Justice League.

JLA the punk band as inspired by the 70s NYC rock scene (sort of) courtesy of Annie Wu.

The image was created in response to a Warren Ellis art challenge.

In 1975, while promoting the New York Dolls, Malcolm McLaren got some people from DC incapably drunk and walked off with a two-year license on one of their properties. Went back to London, changed the shop name from SEX to SEDITIONARIES, then said, “here, Viv, you reckon we could blag fifty grand off someone to make a fillum?”

1977. London. You have been tasked with producing the poster for Malcolm McLaren’s JUSTICE LEAGUE film.

What does that look like?

I love so many things about this one, it’s difficult to choose a favourite part. (Is it Flash in the trench coat? That ‘I dare you’ look in Wonder Woman’s eye? A puking Aquaman?)

You’ll find some really cool submissions on the discussion thread. Check it out if you have a few minutes.
