Who's Who Vol.XI: Jemm Cover Detail (1/1986)
There were so many of these massive, George Pérez-style multi-character images in the '80s, it was easy to lose individual aspects under their weight. For instance, here's a nicely drawn Son of Saturn carrying Justice Society of America member Johnny Thunder for no discernible reason. Johnny doesn;t look too happy about it, either. Is everyone running from the Infinite Man as though he were Galactus? Did one or both of them come out of Infinity Man's Boom Tube? Is this all a prelude to the Infinity Gauntlet? Absolutely not, but I was on a roll, and this seems like the great untold Jemm story! Anyway, dig the art by Paris Cullins & Dick Giordano!
