An old Mike Parobeck JSA promo poster reinterpreted by J.K. Woodward. (Click through for the original and some process shots.) There’s also a lot of Parobeck’s JSA work tagged with his name on this blog.
“The Justice Society of America is the oldest and longest-lasting team of super-heroes in history. Its origins date back to late 1940, when, under the direction of President Franklin Roosevelt, eight of America’s greatest “mystery men” - The Spectre, Dr. Fate, Green Lantern, Hourman, Flash, Atom, Sandman and Hawkman - thwarted Adolf Hitler’s proposed invasion of England. Again, at Roosevelt’s suggestion, those eight decided to band together permanently, handling as a team those menaces too great for any one hero to overcome.”

I think I actually reblogged this piece recently, but it’s the JSA and Mike Parobeck so please forgive me for showing it again.
mattdic asked: If that person does successfully drive you from Marvel due to whatever goofy crusade he has against whatever happened to your favorite character, could you go over and fix DC. i used to read about 2/3rds of their line two years ago and now I don't buy a single title. You guys are doing great though!
I think that mess is beyond the power of any one person to fix. You’d need a change of corporate culture before you’d even have a shot.
