2006 "Magical Lobotomy" color art by Craig Hamilton

Click To Enlarge

Starring Doctor Light and featuring Green Lantern Hal Jordan, Zatanna, an unusually tall Ray Palmer Atom, Hawkman, and the sex parts of Black Canary, Green Arrow, and the Flash. Done with colored pencils by a fellow most famous for his work on the '80s Aquaman mini-series. Of it, Craig Hamilton said...

What a thrill it was to do this piece ~ this scene certainly is the highlight of Identity Crisis! A whopping 15 inches square, this one was a labor of Love! My great Pal and comrade in shenanigans, Michael Bair hooked me up with the IDCrisis series and got me hooked on the talent of Brad Meltzer. IDCrisis is JLA meets CSI with a healthy dose of (REALLY) Desperate Housewives!

If the non-comics reader saw this picture they'd probably think Dr. Light is one of the good guys and Zee was trying to heal him. Everyone looks so concerned.

I enjoy Craig Hamilton's work, and based on his text, I assume he just didn't take the material at all seriously. I guess there's a sort of soap opera camp to Identity Crisis, if you lack a strong connection to the characters involved.

Liss, I agree on the body language, but Dr. Light's face is too doofy to pass as a hero's.
