DC’s relaunched, revamped and rejiggered universe (the proverbial New 52) is creeping up on the end of it’s first year, and there are rumors of upcoming creative changes, including the possibility of a new art team for their centerpiece title, Justice League.

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always “misquoted”) is banded together from remote galaxies, asking:
What artist or art team would you hand-pick to take over Justice League?

Matthew Peterson

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture!

And a nice red uniform.

    Olivier Coipel and Jim Cheung on a rotating shift. Since they aren’t the fastest artists. I would love to see Stuart Immonen but only if he did it like Superman: Secret Identity. That art was amazing. I think that’s because he drew, inked and colored the whole thing himself. Guess what? It never shipped late. Suck on that every other artist.

    I’d love to see the Dodsons have a crack at it.

    For writer, I would love to see Jonathan Hickman. Tear him away from that Marvel contract, and get him to put that crazy cosmic with a personal touch storytelling to DC’s big team.

    For art, let’s get Ivan Reis. He showed what he could do with Blackest Night and Aquaman. Now, let’s have him draw Bats and Supes everymonth.

      Also, is this Jason Inman of Box Office Booze? If so, “hi and keep up the great work!”

      I was about to reply with another choice, but yours made me rethink that.

      I can’t imagine the two of them collaborating well, no matter how awesome it might sound…

    I’d like to see the creative team of Matt Fraction and Terry Dodson. Dodson’s work on team books like X-Men and Defenders has been fantastic, and Fraction’s Defenders run has shown us he can do good team book stories, including both arcs on a grand scale that feature the whole team as well as issues that focus on one particular member of the team without detracting from the series’s momentum. Besides, I love what he’s done with Thor and Iron Man, two characters that have proven very difficult to write historically. I think this team would make an awesome Justice League book.
