Idol-Head: A Jeff Lemire rendered image of the Justice League!
I seem to remember Lemire doing something like this before, because I have a vague recollection of Barry Allen as someone's nerdy uncle. But that notwithstanding, I like this goofy, thin, gangly take on Hawkman, with a little Atom hanging out on his shoulder. Katar (I guess?) has a nice little smile which suggests more of a sort of Silver Age helpfulness than a Modern Age bashiness. I also dig that he added the chest stubble in there as well.
The whole crew looks suitably amusing. I like Green Arrow's Rollie Fingers style moustache, Batman's anorexic look, and the Manhunter's excellently oversized brow. All in all a great piece.
