Yesterday, the newest version of the Justice League made its comic store debut in the pages of JUSTICE LEAGUE UNITED #0. Set within the frozen isolation of Northern Ontario, Canada after the events of Forever Evil, the first issue offers a unique take on a super team crafted by the impeccable creative team of Jeff Lemire and Mike McKone. As most fans likely know, it’s rare that a comic debuts with a “zero issue.” We’re more accustomed to seeing new titles launch with an issue #1. This made us curious about other numbers associated with the debut of this brand new monthly.
Top comics writer Jeff Lemire teams up with superstar artist Mike McKone for the all-new monthly series JUSTICE LEAGUE UNITED, starring a new team of powerful superheroes known as Justice League Canada! The debut issue, JUSTICE LEAGUE UNITED #0, featuring the first appearance of the brand-new teenaged Cree superhero, Equinox, arrives in comic book stores today.
We spent the weekend surrounded by thousands of amazing people who love comics, we just posted the latest episode of our webseries devoted entirely to the world of comics, and now we’re looking ahead to tomorrow where we’ll be treated to a big stack of brand new, hot-off-the-presses…COMICS!
Equinox, the newest member of the Justice League, was announced last Friday! You can see our coverage here.
