What’s That Header Image?

In case you were wondering, the header image is a tweaked version of the first comic book panel I read and still remember to this day. It’s from Legion of Super-Heroes v3, #2, the second comic I ever read (I believe - it’s not impossible that I’m getting the order of the first two comics I read mixed up). That’s Keith Giffen’s art, a depiction of the Legion of Super-Villains using Last Supper-style imagery. The whole issue is burned into my brain, but the LSV section was particularly memorable for me, especially the next page, with Sun Emperor killing a servant girl by kissing her and burning her to death.

I’ve now got this issue in digital form, trade paperback, and single issue. I decided to use this image for the header because I wanted *something* wide and Legion-y, and this did the trick. I cropped it down, badly wiped Lightning Lord’s dialogue bubble, and substituted in my own text, using GIMP. I may try to clean it up further at some point in the future - we’ll see.
