After years focused on the Dark Knight and Gotham City, writer Scott Snyder recently shifted his focus to beyond the DC Universe with Dark Nights: Metal and now he’ll turn his attention to DC’s greatest team of heroes.
DC Comics has announced that Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV, and Joshua Williamson will team-up with artist Francis Manapul for the four-issue weekly series Justice League: No Justice this May.
In this four-issue miniseries, the super-villain Brainiac arrives on Earth with a dire warning for the Justice League: there’s a threat coming to destroy Earth, one that the heroes are ill-equipped to handle. Brainiac thinks he holds the key to victory, but it means combining members of the League with some of the most dangerous villains in the DC Universe and sending them into battle against this extinction-level menace. The stakes are at their absolute highest; if one of these teams fail. It’s game over.
“We thought we knew the entire map of the DC cosmos,” says Snyder. “We thought we had explored all there was to explore. But now we know that all this time the Multiverse was nothing but a fishbowl, and now we’ve been dumped into the ocean, unleashing terrifying new threats, and wondrous new possibilities. METAL opened up channels of storytelling that Francis, James, Joshua and I are excited to explore in a big way. When we’re finished, fans will never look at the Justice League in the same way again.”
Following this weekly event, Snyder will take over the main Justice League series as writer in June, with spinoff titles in this new Justice League family by Tynion and Williamson that will be announced later.
“I’m laying out the biggest action of my life,” says Manapul. “The Justice League realizes that they need to expand their reach to become something bigger than they have ever been before. If you thought my work for JUSTICE LEAGUE: DARKSEID WAR was huge, I’m taking the League to the edge of the cosmos with NO JUSTICE. Anyone who has asked for Harley Quinn, Martian Manhunter, Starfire, Zatanna, the Atom, Raven, or Doctor Fate to be in their personal Justice League will stand up and cheer.
Justice League: No Justice begins on May 09.
