Nice one.

Here's a question. Is there a site where I can identify a variety of covers featuring the Scales of Justice? I know a handful off the top of my head:

Daredevil: Redemption #5
She-Hulk v2 #1
Brave and the Bold #170

I'd love to find more and work some into my decor at the office. Oh, and I really enjoy the accidential future Supreme Court nominee reference in Brave and the Bold #81. Batman and Flash nearly got to experience a whole different type of Borking.

Good question, Rich. You could do what I do when researching "Cover to Cover" posts, which is to comb the Grand Comic Database. Here's the link:


It's a bit meticulous, but it's also kinda fun looking over so many great covers (I can never get enough).

That's a great sub-category of collecting. I know a number of comic fans who collect specific themed covers, and it's always a great deal of fun and an interesting challenge. Good luck on your quest! By the way, do you happen to be a lawyer?

Oh.....I just remembered: An upcoming issue of DC's "Final Crisis" may be featuring a character named "Libra" holding weighing scales as well. Keep an eye out for it!


Thanks, Mark! Not a lawyer, but I'm a political science professor. Specialty is law/courts.

How about Justice League 111? I think there was an Avengers issue where they fought Scorpio as well.

The cover is attractively done and as it happens I've been rereading the SA Daredevil lately, but....

It's pretty obviously a swipe of Batman #5:

Wow! Thanks, Pat! Yeah, I'd say that's a pretty direct swipe. Hey, Rich...there's another cover for your wall (although I'm guessing it may be a little "pricey").


No kidding, Mark. I think I'd be afraid of that one disappearing!
