JLA-Z: JLA Year One Pin-Up

Another JLA group pin-up from the JLA-Z mini-series, this time of the (retconned) original JLA line-up, courtesy artist Michael Avon Oeming, who does a spectacular job here. I love that shot of Aquaman diving toward the reader!

Back in 2006, there were a bunch of internet practical joke memes going around, announcing some huge artist was doing an All Star: (Fill In Name of Character) book, and none of them were ever true.

Around that time, I met Mr. Oeming at my LCS, All Things Fun, (where he did this awesome Aquaman sketch for me) and he said that if I was willing to spread the rumor he was doing an All Star Aquaman book, he'd go along with it. Looking at this piece, I realize I should have taken him up on it!

(BTW: this and all the JLA-Z scans are courtesy F.O.A.M.er Shawn Myers. Thanks Shawn!)

This piece bugs me because you have three members actively doing their thing, two in or affecting their natural environment. Then you have three members with an arm obscured so you can't tell their thumb's in their butts.
