Justice League Of America Vs. Dr. Doom in: "Sentenced - by a Sadist!!"



Yes, it was a toy tie-n and later in his career, but it was still very cool to see Jack Kirby's artwork on DC's premiere heroes in the first two Super Powers mini-series.  I especially liked his take on Hawkman and The Martian Manhunter, I'd have loved to have seen him do more with those characters.

The JLA has faced off with Doom before - They first crossed him in STF #462, and the last time was in an epic two-parter that began in STF #1199 and ended in STF #1200...

I always love your all-Kirby DC/Marvel mash-ups.

See I'm in the minority of those who don't really care for that era of Kirby work. Blasphemous I know, but they just looked, really rough and dirty, and not in a good way. I blame Theakston's inks for a lot of that. I will say though, as you also pointed out, it was still interesting to see how Kirby drew a Hawkman, Firestorm, The Joker, Robin, or as Penguin. I'm glad he finally got royalties from his work for a change as well, considering how badly Marvel was treating him in that area even back then.

Hmmmm! Either Dr. Doom shrank them using one of his rainbow missiles (from SUPER-VILLAIN TEAM UP v.1/#11); or those are animatrons from Liddleville.

It is worth mentioning that Superman and Dr. Doom have tangled "for real" in the second Superman/Spiderman crossover.

@Dale Bagwell: His art work was/still is far superior to that of Franks Robbins and Springer. When they drew Batman, for Detective Comics in the Seventies, they made him look more like the Scarecrow! And a Ralph Bakshi version, at that.
