We know that this February will see Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino taking over Green Arrow, but there is also some big things happening with the Justice League of America book with Geoff Johns and David Finch.
When Justice League #1 hits in February there won’t be one or two variants, there will be 52 variants. The variants will be based on all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and Washington D.C. If you’re a completest when it comes to variant covers you can either make the trip to all 52 places, or keep an eagle eye on ebay I guess. Not only will JLA get 52 variants, it will get two solo books for two of the JLA’s fan favorite characters- Vibe and Katana. Vibe will be written by Arrow creator Andrew Kreisberg with art by Pete Woods. Katana will be written by Catwoman writer Ann Nocenti with Alex Sanchez on art.
DC comic co-publisher told MTV Geek why JLA is important and why in the world there will be 52 variants:
We’ve done a lot of great things with the ‘New 52, and now we’re putting the focus back on Justice League, with the launch of ‘Justice League of America’. We want to make people realize that this is one of our key franchises, and we plan to build it out not just with the main ‘Justice League’ titles, but other books that tie into them as well. Given the title of the comic and the year in which we’re announcing — an election year — we wanted to celebrate the country, as well as the various states.
The covers will reportedly have a “regular” cover with an American flag and the variants will “depict elements from each of the states.” The JLA will be taking a prominent role in the coming year for DC. It will be interesting to see where that goes. What do you think about 52 variants though?
