Yesterday, DC Comics announced that Jim Lee would be stepping down from art duties on JUSTICE LEAGUE, leaving the art team of Ivan Reis and Joe Prado to pick up the pieces and run with them starting with December’s issue #15.
Today, DC announced that Reis and Prado would kick off their tenure on JUSTICE LEAGUE with a crossover between it and AQUAMAN, called “Throne of Atlantis,” starting with issue #15. Unfortunately, we still don’t know who will be drawing AQUAMAN in Reis and Prado’s absence.
There's still questions of what Atlantis is like and what they do and what they're capable of and why they exist and who sank Atlantis… There's all this mythology behind Atlantis that we're not really sure of and no one really has any answers, and we're about to get the answers.
Throne of Atlantis represents a portion of what Johns has planned for JUSTICE LEAGUE during its second year. You can also expect the league to come to blow with Cheetah, as well as Shazam and the all-new Atom joining the squad. Of course, this is all build up to the big “Trinity War” event that DC is already hyping into the stratosphere.
But before all that, first all the heroes and villains will respect the guy who talks to fish. Soon.
