Quite frankly, this bit of news slipped through our fingers while we were driving the highways and biways of this great nation over the weekend, so if you’ve already read the news, feel free to move along and read the next exciting bit of news we have here on the site. Or take the time to post your well thought out reactions to the news in the comment section below.

For the rest of you, news out of DC late last week was James Robinson and Mark Bagley have been signed as the new team for Justice League of America.

“It’s a thrill to be given the reins of DC’s flagship team book and to know that my partner in crime(fighting) will be the esteemed Mark Bagley who’s dynamic storytelling skills I intend to make full use of.  It’s further exciting/gratifying for me that I can dove-tail the events of Cry For Justice into the main book where post-Blackest Night will emerge a new team and a new exciting direction as they get caught up in the next wave of events building throughout the DCU.”

The duo start their duties this October.

    Does it really matter if DC is just going to pull the same stuff on them that Dwayne McDuffie got? Unless the writer and editor of JLA are involved in the planning of big crossovers, the title will still suffer.

    I love Robinson, yet I can’t get excited about this, and I don’t know why.

    I thought Robinson was doing the “new” JLA series with Hal GL & Green Arrow?

    @Jim
    He’s doing both, I believe. The Cascioli art looks kick ass.

    @crood
    Superman and WoK have been phenomenal reads, There’s no reason this new creative team is gonna tank because Robinson has been involved with New Krypton, so him juggling crossovers and JLA material will be a walk in the park.

    Justice League: A Cry for Justice is now just a mini instead of an ongoing.
