When most people hear the name Bryan Hitch, they likely think of impactful, eye-grabbing art on an epic scale. However, as anyone who’s been reading his JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA knows, Hitch is just as adept at scripting action-packed tales driven by a deep understanding of the characters within them. JLA launched a year ago with a thoughtful debut arc that found Superman and the Justice League battling an enemy who used faith and belief as a weapon—the Kryptonian “god” known as Rao.
This July will see the “Rebirth” of a new bimonthly Justice League featuring perennial favorites like Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and the Flash, along with not one, but two rookie Green Lanterns.

What things come to mind when you think of Bryan Hitch? Big, intricately detailed panels. Massively scaled images and battle scenes. Action that blows you out of your seat. In other words, everything that makes Hitch such a perfect choice to write and draw the Justice League.
Batman is one of the most iconic superheroes of all time. He made his landmark first appearance in DETECTIVE COMICS #27 in 1939. The incredible influence of The Dark Knight has transformed the comics industry through the decades, and Batman is just as relevant and beloved by fans today as he was when he was first introduced 75 years ago.
