An old Mike Parobeck JSA promo poster reinterpreted by J.K. Woodward. (Click through for the original and some process shots.) There’s also a lot of Parobeck’s JSA work tagged with his name on this blog.
Here’s the original poster for comparison’s sake:

Darwyn Cooke knocks it out of the park with his cover for JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA #54. (Is that really Alan Scott’s new costume, though? Ugh.)
“The Justice Society of America is the oldest and longest-lasting team of super-heroes in history. Its origins date back to late 1940, when, under the direction of President Franklin Roosevelt, eight of America’s greatest “mystery men” - The Spectre, Dr. Fate, Green Lantern, Hourman, Flash, Atom, Sandman and Hawkman - thwarted Adolf Hitler’s proposed invasion of England. Again, at Roosevelt’s suggestion, those eight decided to band together permanently, handling as a team those menaces too great for any one hero to overcome.”
