COMICS: DC Announces Two New Titles And 52 JLA Variant Covers
DC Comics have announced that fifty-two variant covers for their upcoming Justice League Of America title will be released in February. Additionally, Green Arrow is getting a new creative team and two new solo books have been confirmed.
Via MTV Geek, DC Comics have revealed a rather ambitious plan for their upcoming title Justice League Of America, which will be written by Geoff Johns and drawn by David Finch. When the series launches next February, the first issue will receive 52 variant covers - one for each state in the United States, plus Puerto Rico and Washington DC. The initial cover will feature an American flag, while each of the variant covers will depict elements from its respective state. "Given the title of the comic and the year in which we're announcing -- an election year -- we wanted to celebrate the country, as well as the various states," says DC co-publisher Dan DiDio. "We've done a lot of great things with the 'New 52', and now we're putting the focus back on Justice League, with the launch of 'Justice League of America'. We want to make people realize that this is one of our key franchises, and we plan to build it out not just with the main 'Justice League' titles, but other books that tie into them as well."
MTV Geek also reveal that DC Comics will launch two other titles soon - Vibe from writer Andrew Kreisberg and artist Pete Woods, and Katana from Ann Nocenti and Alex Sanchez. Additionally, Green Arrow will be getting a new creative team starting with issue #17, with Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino on board. All three of these characters will be a part of the JLA in the upcoming series, alongside Steve Trevor, Martian Manhunter, Catwoman, Baz (Green Lantern), Star Girl and Hawkman. The team will be taking on the Secret Society of Villains under Trevor's leadership.
