Writer Scott Snyder (Batman, Dark Nights: Metal) is teaming up with artists Jim Cheung (Young Avengers) and Jorge Jimenez (Superman) this summer for DC’s Justice League #1, and you can take a look at Cheung and Jimenez’s covers to the first issue here…
“Justice League has been the golden ring for me since I came to DC,” states Snyder. “The story I have planned is something I’ve been building towards through Dark Nights: Metal and I can’t wait to tell it in the biggest way possible. And to have mega star Jim Cheung as one partner, and rising superstar Jorge Jimenez as my other partner, I’m just thrilled to get to work!”
“I am extremely honored, and happy, to be able to launch Justice League with Scott and Jorge,” says Cheung about headlining the new series. “It has been many years since I’ve had the pleasure of working at DC, but when Scott first mentioned this opportunity, I knew I couldn’t say no. His energy and excitement has been infectious, and I can’t wait to share what we have in store! I can’t think of a more perfect book to return to DC on! These characters are ones that I grew up loving, and the prospect of being able to leave my mark on them, leaves me thrilled.”
“Working on Justice League is probably the most exciting opportunity I’ve ever had in my career,” adds Jiménez. “I feel more than ever that this is my moment! I have in my hands a script written by the incredible Scott Snyder starring most important DC characters–Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman! Even better, I have the hyper-mega-talented Jim Cheung beside me! I can’t ask for more!”
Justice League #1 will go on sale in June 2018.
