1999 Heroes of the DC Universe 1000 Piece Puzzle

Courtousy of The Irredeemable Shag's Once Upon A Geek comes a pair of jigsaw puzzles for today, both still vacuum sealed in their original packaging. These were released (exclusively?) through Warner Brothers Stores at a sale price of about $12.00. I tend to agree with Shag that the art was by Dan Jurgens, but there's something decidedly off about the look. Maybe this was the product of a jam inking session, as Lobo looks a bit like Val Semeiks, Batman has traces of Graham Nolan, and so on. To read more about this very of its time piece of merchandise, as well as to drink in the enlarged art details, click here.

P.S. I miss the Jim Balent Sentinel costume and the Legion from this period. Not much else, though... especially Atom with a vest!
