The Jazz Legion International by Mayeko The Jazz Legion International by Mayeko
A reinterpretation of The Justice League International (probably my favourite team ever) as they would have existed during the 1920's.

I've been chipping away at this for the past couple of weeks.

I really liked that! Really funny and imaginative and it makes you feel all warm and fuzzy.

I favorited this some time ago, but I just want to express just how much I enjoy this piece. I've shared it with multiple people, who all agree that it is simply fantastic. What I love most about it, however, is just the sheer economy of storytelling, packing an entire story into one page, all without dialog. Today's writers and artists could learn from this.

This is awesome. :heart: First off before I dissolve into fangirling over how cute Guy and Ice are, let me say that I loved the pacing of the comic. It really told a story with a solid beginning middle and end, and the expressions were really well done. I loved seeing everyone's reactions to the different acts while Guy just kinda sat dazed. Poor John as a stand up comedian. :XD: Also love the coloring and the posters. I think one of my favorite things about the posters is that while it emphasizes both Ice and Fire's sexuality in order to sell tickets, I really liked how Ice was totally different from what they expected based on the poster. And that I think is what really got Guy's attention. And Fire is just awesome! The ending was both funny and beyond adorable. Just so cute! *melts at the utter cuteness*
Kerevon Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2012
Me gusta. I kinda like how Guy turned out to be the sensitive one, secretly...
Luizpratta Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2012
And it's so fabulous that no dialogue lines were needed.
Luizpratta Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2012
Wonderful and sensitive, especially Guy's feelings for Tora. Nice reference to M. Lord and the side effect of his powers.

FoxxyLover Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2011
That is super cute! I love how Ice looks so shy when Guy comes up to her. The burlesque style is pretty hot!

It looks amazing!!
Kanirou Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2011
This.....makes me indescribably HAPPY! I love the JLI, always has been and always will be my most beloved team ever. Whatever happened to comics being fun and having happy endings? Everything about this just cracks me up, and Guy makes me daaaaawwwww. I love Ted, Booster, and Guy just trolling around up top, and I really like Fire and Ice's posters, but really, it's those four panels at the end that just got me. Guy swooning over Tora is adorable, Max "convincing" the reporter to swoon is hysterical, Jonn, well, poor Jonn lol, but you know, I bet he has a wicked baritone, and of course Ted and Booster are gonna whoop it up for Bea. Really, this made my day, great style, vibrant colors, and a JLI AU concept I would pay money to read :D

Guy, so cute. I just love seeing that big guy so in love with Tora. Booster and Ted, a hilarious duo wherever they go. Great work!

This makes so happy I can't even

This is fabulous. Ted and Booster are ridiculous people
Lady-Icefire Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2011
Fire looks so pissed off at Ted and Booster. Lol to the extreme.
tranimation-art Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2011  Professional Filmographer
I love everything about this. My favourite team is also the Justice League International! Seeing Maxwell Lord hypnotizing Superman made me laugh loudly, plus love the ending with Beetle and Booster going nowhere fast with Fire, as well as Guy bringing flowers to Ice.
Goodluckbat Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2011
guy and ice are so cute at the end :)

I liked all the details you put in here, like Max's nose bleeding during his act.

This is quite an outstanding pic.
Moofster Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2010
Oh gosh, I love every bit of this so much but the Max panel made me both wince and smile. You pulled this off perfectly~ :heart:

Awww, this is totes adorable. Especially the end.
pnpmario Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2010
Without reading the description, it took me seeing J'onn to realise "Oh snap, it's the Justice League!". I then had an appropriate nerdgasm. Boosted and Ted never stop being funny.
pnpmario Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2010
...'Boosted'? Seriously brain? BoosteR. RRRRR. Not D.
DivingSiren Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2010
This has made my life complete. Seriously. The expressions and the storytelling are really remarkable. Fantastic job.

(Not to mention I'm a Tora/Guy fan <3)
LeeTXJD Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2010
This is a GREAT comic. Amazingly you capture the characters without a word of dialogue.
Well done.

D'awwwwwwww I think this is adorable enough. I like it even though I have NO IDEA who the people in the Justice League International are.
Telemondo Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2010  Student Digital Artist
This is really well done. I love the panel layout.
Jaclynhyde Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2010
EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS IS AMAZING. (I especially like Booster's worried look at Ted during Max's hypnotism act. ALSO EVERYTHING ELSE.)
