Justice League 2 Motion Comic Fan Art Mandatory Project Tracing Art

A fan-made motion comic based on Zack Snyder’s original plans for Justice League 2 has been accused of tracing the artwork of DC Comics artists.

A fan project to create a motion picture comic based on Zack Snyder’s original plan for Justice League 2 was arrested while tracing artwork from other manga artists. Zack Snyder and his wife Deborah leave the original Alliance justice in 2017 After hitting a losing battle with Warner Bros., combined with the grief of losing their daughter that same year. Warner Bros. called first The Avengers director, Joss Whedon to finish and rework the film into something much lighter, resulting in a less favorable final product. Snyder’s original vision for Alliance justice was recently brought to life as a whopping four hours long on HBO Max after a fan-led campaign to #RestoretheSnyderCut.

Since its release Snyder Cut with many fans earlier this year, a lot of information has surfaced regarding Snyder’s plans for two Alliance justice next part. Because those two movies won’t happen, a Alliance justice fan project by LightCast aims to create a motion comic detailing what will happen in the movies. Title BILLIONhe Dreamscapes of Justice League: A Motion Comic, the project will adapt storyboards created by Snyder, Jim Lee, and Geoff Johns and even feature Darkseid himself, Ray Porter, acting as the narrator. The project itself is not for profit and will instead raise funds to support both the #RestoreTheSnyderVerse movement and the American Suicide Prevention Foundation in honor of Snyder’s daughter, Autumn.

Since announcing the project last month, several artworks have been shared online to further promote the manga. However, many Twitter users have noted that much of the artwork bears many similarities to work produced by other artists for the official DC comics, including Jim Lee, Rafa Sandoval, Jason Fabok, and Ivan Reis. While tracing is a relatively common practice in comic book production, it is often used for reference purposes, while LightCast seem to be actively copying the artwork for their own project. Naturally, this is not suitable for many fans, for one user, Walt write: “I’m all for this fanmade comic, but not if it’s tracing and stealing other people’s artwork.” LightCast have since responded to the accusations in a statement on their own Twitter account, writing:

“We’ve seen some concerns about Re:JLMotionComic Art. Some of our work is inspired by drawings by Jim Lee, Jason Fabok and Ivan Reis. Most of the drawings you’ll see in the project. this project will be 100% new original art & we are so excited for all of you to see it!You only viewed 1%”.

You can see Tweets comparing different artworks, as well as LightCast’s response below:

The tracing of other artists’ artwork has sparked a lot of debate online, with some arguing that because Dreams is a charity project and LightCast will not profit from the comics, then the images must be considered fair use. However, others have pointed out that regardless of whether or not the company makes a profit from them, not citing or even tagging the original artists is still highly unethical behavior and equates to theft, this is hard to deny.

Art theft is a serious problem for online artists, both inside and outside the comic book industry, so it’s not fun to see a company actively engaged in this practice even when their purpose is good. Furthermore, trying to claim that the plates are merely “inspired” by the works of Fabok, Reis, Lee and Sandoval feels like an extremely weak excuse, especially when the two images are compared side by side, as many Twitter users have done. One even creates time lapse with two images of Superman superimposed to especially the damned result to not support the problem.

For many fans, this was enough to turn them away from the project regardless of its charitable purposes, which ultimately is a shame for the charity it intends to support. That said, tracing LightCast’s artwork and attempting to turn it into their own is very concerning and should not be questioned. Hopefully, if they Justice League 2 motion comics if they keep going they’ll at least credit the artists they’re asking for “inspired” project. We’ll have to see if there’s any feedback from the original artists or from DC itself.

Than: Will Zack Snyder’s Justice League 2 ever happen?
