The Retooled Machine
On this page we’ll feature artwork from the upcoming The Justice Machine: Object of Power graphic novel by David Enebral and Ivan Barriga.
First, is a look at the new costume designs by Preston Asevedo…we went for a more uniform look rather than the individual outfits in previous versions, but color artists Preston and Deirdre DeLay-Peirpoint stayed as close to the original schemes of the characters as possible. From left to right: Chain, Blazer, Challenger, Diviner, Demon, Titan and Talisman.
All of the team members wear a unifying insignia, a scales of justice within a gear wheel, first designed by Darryl Banks and refined by Melissa Martin-Ellis. The insignia is functional, serving a variety of purposes.
Preston also created new looks for The Justice Machine’s most implacable foes–Zarren and Darkforce, here rendered by David Enebral and colorist Jason Jensen.
The prologue of Object of Power features artwork by Ivan Barriga and Kirsty Swan and bridges the gap between the last issue of the Millennium series and the graphic novel.
And last but not least…the first three pages by David Enebral from chapter one of the graphic novel! As you can see, the double-page spread (colored by Jason Jensen) is a homage to the iconic John Byrne cover from 1981′s first issue of The Justice Machine.
The Justice Machine also has a new base of operations, colloquially known as “The Machine Shop”, hidden beneath Liberty Island.
But the one thing that isn’t new about this version of The Justice Machine is the explosive action! That stays the same!
Stay tuned! The Machine is just now gearing back up!
