New "Justice League Of America" Announced By Geoff Johns and David Finch


Breaking news!

Coming out of the Toronto Fan Expo is the news that a new Justice League will be forming in 2013 with Geoff Johns and David Finch onboard as the writer and artist.

Justice League of America will feature a far different team than the Batman, Superman, Flash, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and Green Lantern assemblage that came with the reboot of the New 52.

DC Comics released an image and press release with Green Arrow, Katana, Martian Manhunter, the new Green Lantern Baz, Stargirl, Vibe, Hawkman and Catwoman front and center.

Via DC:

"This is a very different kind of team book,” said 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.”
