Thank God for Starro
I've written about this panel before, but I just love it so much. For context: It takes place in the old Justice League mountain headquarters, where T.O. Morrow has reanimated a whole pile of JLA foes. The heroes and villains, in the usual Dick Dillin style, are fighting right on top of each other, practically jamming their elbows into each other's eyes. Which makes the "atomic warhead arrow" an even BETTER fighting strategy than it would normally be. I know I'd want to have one on my back if I spent my nights jumping off rooftops.
From JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #65, 1968. This two-part story was longtime writer Gardner Fox's last on the title, and Dillin's first.
