The DC Trinity, a handsome trio, rendered in the beloved merchandising-friendly style of José Luis García-López so many of us grew up on. Flash, Hawkman, Green Arrow, Black Canary, Robin and Supergirl are similarly graced. For some reason, Green Lantern and Aquaman look more like Mike Zeck inked by Jerry Ordway, the former something of a García-López at '80s Marvel Comics, the latter famed for his DC work, neither a slouch. Finally, there's Ed Hannigan's not-ready-for-prime-time Martian Manhunter style guide to stink up the print. What a Wet Blanket from Mars, but at least he made the roll call (sorry Atom!)

I did not like the red rope for the cape.

Agreed, and I could do without the bright red eyes. Either make them darker or go back to '80s indigo.

Kind of a weird design to the whole thing. Of course I'm happy to see Arthur included!

Yeah, it fairly screams of a few hours worth of bad Photoshop by an intern, especially the framing/shadows of Batman and Black Canary.
