Justice League N0. 40 Variant

Cover to Justice League #40 showing Darkseid, Anti-Monitor, and Metron.

I went for a Bob Peak movie poster look with Tron Legacy design elements. I revamped the floating chair within the constraints of its existing design so it'd match Justice League artist's Jason Fabok's cool Tron-inspired redesign of Metron.

If you don't know the great Bob Peak, well, he's just awesome. The Star Trek: The Motion Picture poster he did long ago was chief in inspiring this cover and his Excalibur movie poster resonated throughout my childhood.

Bob Peak! There's a name I haven't heard in a long time.  Really big in the 60s and 70s.  Couldn't look at a magazine rack without seeing his work and those trying to imitate it.  Faculty or board member of the FA group.  Really strong designs.

I was sooo jealous from the US market, because we usually just got one cover (and particularly speaking, never the ones I want Hahah), but was so happy to see that they chose your art as cover for Justice Legue 40 when it was published here in Brazil last month . Amazing work!!!

I used to think that those are teeth on the Anti-Monitor's mouth but it turns out to be super wrinkly lips on closer inspection.

The ruler of the Anti-mater universe VS the New god of Evil with a New god of time to chronicle these events truly tis will be a fight to behold assuming you live long enough to see who is victorious
