The DC offices are closed today, so posting will be light. And, I should be well on my ways to a few days of rest in the Florida Keys as you read this. But we do have one cool bit of news for you to carry you through this Memorial Day weekend.
This is it, folks. The new creative team of writers Bill Willingham and Matt Sturges, along with exceptional artist Jesus Merino unite to herald a new era for the Justice Society of America.
Strange things start to happen at JSA headquarters just as two new recruits join the fold, all which point to an all-out assault on the team. And what do new members King Chimera and All-American Kid have to do with it?
Well, surprise news. There's one co-feature we haven't shown pages from, and that's BLUE BEETLE, which will be setting up shop with BOOSTER GOLD starting with #21 of that series, from writer Matt Sturges and artist Mike Norton. In the first installment, Jaime Reyes has a friendly lunch interrupted by a marauding 50-foot robot. Sound like a fun break? Didn't think so. Check out some colored pages below.
With Geoff Johns moving on from his long tenure as writer of JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA with the 26th issue of the current series, I'm sure many of you are wondering just what is in store for the world's first super-team. Well, for starters, we have writer/artist Jerry Ordway stepping in for a stint, to be followed by the new regular creative team of writers Bill Willingham and Matt Sturges and artist Jesus Merino.
What happens when every villain and hero on the planet wants your head on a platter? Welcome to the world of the Human Flame. As he awakens, seconds after the end of FINAL CRISIS, the two-bit thug realizes that he's a dead man walking for his role in the death of the Martian Manhunter. Broke and powerless, there's little choice in what he can do: Run like hell and cross his fingers. Check out the first few pages from FINAL CRISIS AFTERMATH: RUN #1, from writer Matt Sturges and artist Freddie E. Williams II.
