LEGION OF SUPERHEROES Comes to JUSTICE LEAGUE UNITED This Fall!



My favourite super hero team of all time joins the JUSTICE LEAGUE UNITED this fall for an epic  6-PART storyline of cosmic proportions, called "THE INFINITUS SAGA".

The story will be massive in scope and will finally reveal the origin of Equinox, and include every single member of the LEGION teaming up with the JLU to stop a threat thousands of years in the making. The story will be illustrated by Neil Edwards.

Growing up, TEEN TITANS by George Perez and Marv Wolfman and LEGION OF SUPERHEROES by Paul Levitz and Keith Giffen.

I feel really lucky to be writing both teams this fall in JL UNITED and in TEEN TITANS EARTH ONE Vol.1, and original 144-page Graphic Novel illustrated by Terry and Rachel Dodson, out in November!

LEMIRE, KINDT and RIVERA "THE VALIANT" THIS DECEMBER


As announced at Comic Book Resources, Jeff Lemire is coming to Valiant for his first written work, co-written with Matt Kindt and illustrated by Paolo Rivera. Entitled “The Valiant,” the book is a four-issue prestige style series that brings together the Eternal Warrior, Bloodshot and the new Geomancer Kay McHenry as they go up against a universe-threatening villain named The Immortal Enemy. Fans of the Eternal Warrior will no doubt remember the Immortal Enemy, a villain who could reincarnate throughout different ages always with the same nefarious plans of domination and destruction, though there was always someone there to defeat him — and that’s where Lemire comes in.
The book will span most the entirety of the Valiant Universe and its history as it stands today, back to the “dawn of the universe, to the very seeds of it centuries ago all the way up to the modern day.” It sounds like a primer of the Valiant Universe mixed in with an epic battle of good and evil, and while it mainly features Bloodshot, Geomancer and the Eternal Warrior, fans should expect many of Valiant’s characters to appear (such as Armstrong, who is on the cover above). Lemire also notes that this will also tie into what Kindt is doing with “Unity,” as the Eternal Warrior is a part of that team so you can expect to see them pop up.
It’s noted that while this is somewhat of an event, it’s not an event in the traditional modern terms — there will be no tie-ins, no ancillary issues, and everything is contained to the four issue series. Lemire also promises that this will be a big status quo challenger in the way that all company-wide events offer shake-ups. However, given the smaller stature and more controlled publishing line at Valiant, you could expect those words to hold a bit more gravitas than your average event-given platitudes.
“The Valiant” begins in December.

BLACK HAMMER: New Ongoing Series from Jeff Lemire and Dean Ormston and Dark Horse Comics!

BLACK HAMMER will be a brand new creator-owned ongoing series from Dark Horse Comics coming late 2014. The book is written by Jeff Lemire (Sweet Tooth, Trillium, Animal Man) and drawn by the amazing Dean Ormston (Books of Magik). 

BLACK HAMMER follows a group of oddball superheroes who have been "wiped out of continuity" after an earth shaking cataclysmic "event" and wake on a farm in a mysterious small town.

They were the greatest heroes of a lost era, Golden Aged crime buster, ABRAHAM SLAM, interstellar adventurer COL. WEIRD and his robot sidekick TALKY-WALKY, BARBALIEN warlord From Mars, GOLDEN GAIL, America’s super-sweetheart, MADAME DRAGONFLY, mistress of the macabre, and BLACK HAMMER invincible champion of the streets.

They have no idea where they are or how to get back home. All they know is they can't leave the borders of the seemingly idyllic small town.

The book follows the strange cast of characters as they work to assimilate themselves into quiet small town life, living as a bizarre surrogate family on the farm, all the while try to uncover the many mysteries of the farm, where they really are and how to get back home.

 BLACK HAMMER will be a monthly ongoing series launching in MARCH 2015 from Dark Horse Comics!

GOODBYE GREEN ARROW




As announced yesterday, artist Andrea Sorrentino, colourist Marcelo Maiolo, and I will be ending our run as the creative team on DC Comics' Green Arrow with the September issue.

I loved writing the character over the last two years, and especially loved working with Andrea and Marcelo, who are wonderful artists and wonderful people, but it felt like a good time to end on a high note with the "Green Arrow: Broken" storyline.

Thanks to everyone who supported and followed the book each month. DC Comics were very supportive of our run and our decision to leave when we did, so thanks to them as well.

Keep an eye out for some exciting announcement about new projects from both Andrea and I very soon!
