Face-Off at Comicon

The above photo taken at San Diego Comicon 2013 appeared across two pages in the August 2, 2013 issue of Entertainment Weekly. Isn't it great? (I realize that my photo of the spread is not great but that's because it's difficult to take a well-lighted picture of an image printed on glossy paper...)

The cosplay face-off composition reminds me of the Super-Team Versus Super-Team cover format pioneered by Carmine Infantino and as first seen on 1967's Justice League of America #56 (shown below). Just look at those forceful Infantino pencils and those supple Murphy Anderson inks and that timeless Ira Schnapp lettering. Nice!
