DC Comics has confirmed that artists Jim Cheung and Jorge Jimenez will join writer Scott Snyder to launch a new Justice League series spinning out of the weekly No Justice event.
In the relaunched series, Martian Manhunter will rejoin the League as he and Batman seek to recruit an old ally back to the team. Meanwhile, DC has teased that Flash and Hawkgirl will take on an adventure that could “rewrite their mythologies.”
“I am extremely honored, and happy, to be able to launch Justice League with Scott and Jorge,” said Cheung in a statement. “It has been many years since I’ve had the pleasure of working at DC, but when Scott first mentioned this opportunity, I knew I couldn’t say no. His energy and excitement has been infectious, and I can’t wait to share what we have in store! I can’t think of a more perfect book to return to DC on! These characters are ones that I grew up loving, and the prospect of being able to leave my mark on them, leaves me thrilled.”
Justice League #1 is set to hit comic book shelves June 6th!
