Yesterday a the Fan Expo Toronto, DC Comics announced at their DC Entertainment-All Access Panel, that there will be a new Justice League of America title coming in 2013. This is not replacing the current Justice League book, but will be an all-new team with some familiar faces.
First teased in the Free Comic Book Day DC book The New 52 FCBD Special Edition #1, the new Justice League team will consist of: Steve Trevor, Catwoman, Green Arrow, Hawkman, Katana, Martian Manhunter, the new Green Lantern (Baz), Stargirl, and Vibe. Writing this series will be Geoff Johns (Justice League, Aquaman, Green Lantern), who is joined by David Finch (Batman: The Dark Knight, Aphrodite IV, Cyberforce, Avengers). Look for this new Justice League title to join the ranks sometime in 2013.
DC Comics announced at the DC Entertainment-All Access Sunday panel at Fan Expo Toronto that a new League will be forming.
Launching in 2013, DC Comics will publish a new ongoing comic book series, JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA, written by Geoff Johns and drawn by David Finch.
“This is a very different kind of team book,” says Geoff Johns. “On first glance, people might think the heroes of the JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA stand in the shadows of Superman, Wonder Woman and the rest of the JUSTICE LEAGUE, but Green Arrow, Katana, Martian Manhunter, the new Green Lantern, Stargirl, Vibe, Hawkman and Catwoman thrive in the shadows. They’re underdogs who have everything to prove and something to lose. They’re a team of unlikely heroes who will help one another discover they’re as A-List as anybody — yes, even Vibe. Though getting there won’t be easy. Why they’re formed, why each member joins, what they’re after and who the society of villains is they’re trying to take apart will all be clear in the first issue when it hits early 2013. David and I are really focused on delving deep into what it’s like to not be a member of the big seven and why, sometimes, the grass isn’t always greener on the other side.”
