Ballistic Action

 BALA   (Image, 1996)

and Image Comics, Inc.

The artwork of Top Cow illustrators is showcased in this one-shot. Dedicated to Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel, there are no stories at all, merely splash pages and pin-ups from early 90s newcomers. Published by Image Comics, the drawings have the trademark Image style: exaggerated anatomies, scantily clad females, and grimacing characters. Most of the illustrations resemble glossy photos from a sports magazine, which was their intention. A shot of Velocity in a Playboy pose is thrown in to heighten the titillation.
