Batman and Green Lantern (John Stewart)



I usually don't use very modern images in these covers, as I am usually trying to evoke a silver/bronze age feel. This one is an exception. I saw these two great pieces by Jim Lee and Ethan Van Sciver and thought the could work together, so I gave it a shot. I still couldn't resist one old school trait by adding in a couple of word balloons. Comic covers do not have nearly enough word balloons these days!

John Stewart is a great character and I am glad that his role in the JLA/JLU animated series has given him a much higher profile. Geoff Johns and others have done some great work with him in the past few years.

In honor of the represented artists, here are a couple of pieces of original art by Lee and Van Sciver:

This is amongst my favorite covers b/c I LOVE that Ethan Van Sciver cover w/Batman w/a power ring. Very cool!
