Ramona Fradon's JSA


Saw this on Facebook and had to share. Pioneering female comics artist Ramona (METAMORPHO, AQUAMAN, SUPER-FRIENDS) Fradon's version of the JSA. A commission perhaps? Obviously Aquaman is present because of her association with the character. Don't know about Green Arrow. Really don't know about Blackhawk since he was, in fact, published by Quality Comics in the forties and not National-DC (or even AA). Still, an absolutely lovely and nostalgic piece.

As I recall (perhaps incorrectly) from when I first saw this piece elsewhere, this was a commission drawing of what a JSA might have looked like had DC revived or continued the strip into the mid-'50s. Dr. Fate was included at the wish of the customer, but otherwise the characters include a combination of then-recent or then-current DC heroes.
