SCOOP: Bruce Timm Briefly Planned JUSTICE LEAGUE Inspired By José Luis García-López

I recently stumbled upon a blog post by animator/character designer, Shannon Tindle. It reveals that Bruce Timm briefly entertained the thought of making a Justice League inspired by José Luis García-López's art. Come see Shannon's exploratory artwork for it.

Scoops Opinion




Artist, Shannon Tindle, most recently worked on DreamWorks Animation's The Croods and Rise of the Guardians. But, it's her few pieces of artwork from a scrapped project involving Bruce Timm that caught my interest. Bruce, recently stepped down as the Supervising Producer of Warner Bros. Animation, but don't fret cause Gary Miereanu explained that Bruce would "be back - in a very big way."

One possibility, that we posted back in late March (click here) was that Timm was creating a Justice League cartoon series.

Now, I've come across Tindle's post from April 12th titled, "70's Justice League":
"Last year I got a call from Warner Bros. asking if I'd be interested in working with Bruce Timm on a Justice League video. I think I was in the car before I finished the call. I met with Bruce who told me he was looking to do a graphic interpretation of José Luis García-López's DC work from the 70s. Unfortunately, they decided not to do the project less than 24 hours after I agreed to do it (seriously). However, Bruce wanted to see what I'd do with the characters so they let me play for a week anyway. Although, I probably would've added more García-López in later passes, it was one of best gigs ever." - Shannon Tindle

For those of you not familiar with José Luis García-López, here is a great breakdown of his achievements from Comics Alliance:
Born in Spain in 1948, García-López's earliest work in the United States was for Charlton Comics. He eventually moved to New York, where he met then DC Editor Joe Orlando. His significant contributions to the visual style of several iconic DC characters, as well as his influence on artists who would follow him, is undeniable.

While this new collection is certainly welcome, and should be considered an essential part of any Superman fan's collection, it's possible that García-López's greatest contribution to DC was the DC Comics Style Guide, a virtual master class in how to portray DC Comics' iconic characters.
