Writer Jeff Lemire announced on his blog today that his new book, JUSTICE LEAGUE UNITED will be hitting store shelves this April. Lemire, along with artist Mike McKone, were originally slated to turn JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA into JUSTICE LEAGUE CANADA, but after some talk with DC, they all agreed that just changing the title to "Canada" may be a little limiting, so they're starting a whole new series instead This still means that JLA will be ending in April.
As a result, JLA will be ending in April and my book will become a brand new ongoing series called JUSTICE LEAGUE UNITED! Justice League United will launch in April with an extra-sized Zero Issue followed by #1 in May. And the first storyline will be titled: Justice League Canada. The team will still be based in Canada and the book will still introduce a brand new First Nations Canadian superhero to the DC Universe. More details on this new character, her origin and her powers, will be released in the weeks to come.
So make sure, this April, to check out the newest DC on-going series, JUSTICE LEAGUE UNITED!
What do you guys think about this new series and the name change?
