Justice League International #1

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials, DC Comics,

Justice League International #1Have you got the reboot fever yet? There are a lot of the new DC Comics titles that I’m interested in, and a lot that I’m not.

But that should be expected when there’s a Fifty-Twoniverse to deal with.

One of the new titles that I’m anxiously awaiting is Justice League International. It’s written by Dan Jurgens - a guy who certainly knows his way around super-heroes, and it’s illustrated by my friend Aaron Lopresti (the recent Wonder Woman artist who just did a stint on Weird Worlds with his own creation, Garbageman).

I’d let Aaron draw my Costco shopping list, so turning him loose on the JLI characters is a no-brainer for me.

Here’s what DC says about the first issue:

“With the growing presence of super beings around the world, the United Nations resolves to create a new group called Justice League International. Batman, Booster Gold, Green Lantern Guy Gardner, August General in Iron, Fire, Ice, Vixen and Rocket Red are charged with promoting unity and trust – but can they reach that goal without killing each other first?”

And it looks like I’m not alone. Even though the issue doesn’t go on sale until this week, it’s already “sold out” in terms defined by the publisher.

Fortunately, I reserved my copy already. Aaron couldn’t show me the artwork for the book when I saw him at San Diego this year (it’s all hush, you know). But the embargo is off and he sent me a scan of the line art for the cover. Sweet!
