A comic book homage to Georges Seurat's “Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte.” This digital print on canvas is featured at the Darkness & Light exhibition currently touring the United States as part of DC Entertainment's We Can Be Heroes initiative to combat hunger in the Horn of Africa. It features the New 52 versions (where applicable) of Apollo, Aquaman, Batgirl, Batman, Batwoman, Beppo the Super-Monkey, Booster Gold, Captain Atom, Catwoman, Deadman, Dex-Starr, Fire, Firestorm, the Flash (Barry Allen,) Godiva, Green Arrow, Green Lantern Hal Jordan, Grifter, Hawkman, Ice, Krypto, Martian Manhunter, Mera, Midnighter, Nightwing, Poison Ivy, Red Hood, Robin (Damian Wayne,) Superman, and Wonder Woman. There's a companion piece, “Saturday Evening by the Legion of Doom,” featuring villainous counterparts (unfortunately offering Libra in place of J'Onn J'Onzz.) Some web galleries worth pursuing can be found at Comics Alliance and Comic Vine.

This is a very interesting take on a classic painting.
