DC has announced that writers Keith Giffen and Judd Winick are teaming to write a new Justice League series that features Captain Atom, Booster Gold, Blue Beetle, Fire, Ice, and Rocket Red?Â Looks like Justice League International is back to me.Â Â Â Justice League: Generation Lost will be the other bi-weekly series that will run alongside the Brightest Day bi-weekly that was announced yesterday.
DC is keeping quiet (for the moment) on who is doing the art for the series, but we do know Tony Harris and J.D. Mettler will be providing the cover art for the series.Â I find the Blue Beetle inclusion in this list interesting, because as far as we know the Ted Kord Blue Beetle is still dead, and unless something interesting happens at the end of Darkest Night, that leaves Jamie Reyes as the next member in.Â Interestingly, Matt Sturges did comment to us that Blue Beetle will still be around following his co-feature run in Booster Gold.Â Although, when pushed for more clarification, all Sturges said, was “Wait and see…”
To flip it to Ted Kord’s favor, there is a shadowed figure in the middle of the picture that looks familiar.Â Color me excited?Â You bet!
The 26-issue series should begin in April… or May.Â Winick and Giffen were not specific in the launch date.
