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.

This iPad needs an enema!

Holy sweet mother! I had already put the iPad on my Father’s Day wish list, but I might have to pick one up early when they go on sale in Canada. I mean just look at this decal! (via Comics Alliance)

Dear Steve Jobs: Can you please allow Flash to run on your iPad so I can read Marvel Digital Comics. Sincerely, Me.

Green Lantern + DC + Fringe

This here is your classic “cross-platform promotional opportunity” and “content synergy.”

Comics Alliance reports (via DC’s The Source) that tonight’s episode of the two-part season finale of Fringe will include a Red Lantern cover among other Easter eggs.

But it’s also interesting that the upcoming Tales from the Fringe mini-series is published by Wildstorm/DC and will be in comic shops next month.

I’m just saying…

UPDATE: Here’s a link to all the covers featured on the episode.

M.O.D.O.K. in love

In my quest to find all things M.O.D.O.K., I came across this gem on Comics Alliance (via CulturePopped).

But the Batman and Li’l Preacher team-up deserves the top prize of the 6 in the “Great Comics that Never Happened” parody series published to date, with JLA & The Wu-Tang Clan coming in a very close second.
