From Lost to International
Thu, 09/08/2011 - 1:00pm
Last year I found myself editing a little bi-weekly called GENERATION LOST. When it landed in my lap, I was suddenly transported back to being an eight-year-old in an airport in Chicago when I was traveling on my own to see my dad in North Dakota. I had five bucks in my pocket and I picked up my first JLI (that’s JUSTICE LEAGUE INTERNATIONAL for you folks that aren’t in the know). I remember being like, “Holy cow! Comics are filled with action and comedy? No way!”
When GEN LOST ended and talks of DC Comics-The New 52 emerged, I had high hopes that this wouldn’t be the last time these heroes would work together. I mean, here we have this team of misfit heroes that the world considers jokes—but the truth is, they save the world again and again. And sure enough, even after the world changed in FLASHPOINT #5, these heroes have been brought back together by fate along with some newbies …
The ever-loved Booster Gold returns, leading a team of U.N. sponsored heroes including the likes of a Brazilian called Fire, a total powerhouse in the rocky exterior of August-General-in-Iron, the snobbish crazy-haired Godiva (remember her from FLASHPOINT: LOIS LANE & THE RESISTANCE?), the always impressive Batman, Green Lantern Guy Gardner and others. This team is in for some hurt in their first story arc, but I’m glad to be a part of it. Hope you’re ready for action and adventure and a few laughs along the way.
JUSTICE LEAGUE INTERNATIONAL #1 is in stores now. And in case you haven’t picked up your copy yet, check out this sneak preview.
