Static Shock Grows Up

static shock 2

It’s been a while since Static Shock has even crossed my mind. A decade, or more perhaps. I didn’t exactly go wild for the show as he just couldn’t live up to the mythos of Batman and Superman, but did catch a few episodes on occasion.

If the artwork above looks like what might happen if Alex Ross tried to remake Static Shock, that’s because that’s exactly what’s happen. This is indeed a piece of work from Ross, though I don’t imagine a full series is coming. Still, very cool to see.

  1. I’m pretty sure that’s Jakeem Thunder, the Grant Morrison take on Johnny Thunder from the golden age JSA.

    Geoff Johns also used him for a run on JSA and I think this image is a cover from that series.

    At the same time, Static and Jakeem would make a pretty decent electric duo.

  2. Not Static – that’s Jakeem Thunder, Johny Thunder’s successor from the Justice Society. Old work, no less awesome than any other piece of work by Ross
