If you have been out of reading comic books for awhile, then this news might just be the pathway for you getting back in. IGN has the scoop on DC Comics’ overhaul of their Justice League line of comic books.
After DC Metal ends in March, DC Comics will release a 4 issue weekly mini-series titled ‘Justice League: No Justice’. The mini-series will be co-written by Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV, and Joshua Williamson with art by Francis Manapul.
“We thought we knew the entire map of the DC cosmos,” Snyder said in a statement given to IGN. “We thought we had explored all there was to explore. But now we know that all this time the Multiverse was nothing but a fishbowl, and now we’ve been dumped into the ocean, unleashing terrifying new threats, and wondrous new possibilities. Metal opened up channels of storytelling that Francis, James, Joshua and I are excited to explore in a big way. When we’re finished, fans will never look at the Justice League in the same way again.”
From the looks of the article, there will be four new Justice League teams. Without knowing the exact names of the teams, we will call them teams 1 through 4 for now. Check out the line-ups below:
The plot of ‘No Justice’ sees Brainiac warn the Justice League about a cosmic-level threat on the way to destroy Earth. When the heroes find out that even the combined might of the Justice League (including some unlikely new recruits) isn’t enough to stop it, Brainiac advises them with a plan. His strategy involves the heroes allying with villains and splitting up into four specialized teams. The fate of a different alien world depends on the success of each team, but if they fail, it’s game over not just for Earth but the entire DC Universe.
With new Justice League titles coming, the current creative team of Christopher Priest and Pete Woods, will be wrapping up their run on April 18 with issue #43. Justice League of America, by Steve Orlando and other various artists, will wrap up on April 11 with issue #29.
