2009 Covered: Justice League of America 21 by Matt Kindt

Click To Enlarge

Covered is a blog devoted to "artists re-interpreting comic book covers," typically through an indie aesthetic. Here, Harvey Award winning writer/artist Matt Kindt offers a new look at an old Mike Sekowsky piece. Justice League of America reintroduced the Justice Society of America after years in publishing limbo, including Golden Age Atom Al Pratt in his less interesting/creepy mask. Ray Palmer was on the original cover, but Kindt dropped him from his perch on Batman's shoulder. It goes without saying that I disapprove of the omission (and wish Kindt had at least kept the Cyclotron fin, or reversed to Pratt's "home invader" look...)
