Without a doubt, DC Comics is doing a fantastic job with their books. Their fall event Dark Nights: Metal will be wrapping up this week with issue number six. As most comic book fans know, following this event will be the four-part miniseries titled Justice League: No Justice that Scott Snyder will be writing with James Tynion IV and Joshua Williamson. But at WonderCon this year during the Publishers panel on Saturday morning, we got some huge news on what comes next.
Snyder on stage alongside Dan Ditto and Jim Lee announced not one but two new Justice League titles that will come out of the miniseries. First, there is Justice League Dark. This will be written by Tynion with artwork by Alvaro Martinez, inks by Raul Fernandez and colors by Brad Anderson. The team will be composed of Zatanna, Swamp Thing, Man-Bat, Detective Chimp and the leader of the team Wonder Woman.
The other Justice League series that was announced during the panel was Justice League Odyssey. This title will feature the writing of Joshua Williamson and the artwork of the amazing Stjepan Sejic. This book was described as “Justice League Space” and a “crazy space western” by Snyder as he made the announcement. This team will include one of the newest Green Lanterns, Jessica Cruz, Starfire, Azrael and will be lead by Cyborg. Oh, and there is one more member that I forgot, Darkseid. You did not read that wrong, the ruler of Apokolips will be joining this team.
We had already known that Snyder would be taking over on the main Justice League title. Joining him on the book will be Jim Cheung and Jorge Jimenez. But what we didn’t know was that the Justice League would once again be working out of the iconic Hall of Justice. Also that the team would once again come face to face with the evil Legion of Doom. No word yet on who was going to make up the Legion.
All three of these titles are going to fall under the New Justice imprint at DC Comics and are scheduled to debut in June. Snyder talked about his passion for the Justice League and its members. How the Hall of Justice was going to serve as the main base for the League, but that there are portals that lead to the other teams. It will be very interesting to see how all the teams interconnect.
