Brian Michael Bendis Will Continue To Write Justice League Team, But Leaving Series Ahead Of Milestone Justice League #75!

Brian Michael Bendis Will Continue To Write Justice League Team, But Leaving Series Ahead Of Milestone Justice League #75?!

In BMB’s own words.

First of all, as some of you saw the DC solicitations for March are out and JUSTICE LEAGUE 74 will be my last issue on the main series.

But, we’re going to wrap up our run in high style.

First off, we have the JUSTICE LEAGUE ANNUAL fully illustrated by Eisner award-winning Bitter Root co-creator Sanford Greene. This gorgeous annual brings Wonder Woman back to the Justice League and starts a cosmic disturbance that will send the DC universe in chaos and bring us some OMAC!

There are lots of surprises in this double size spectacular. All of this ties very significantly into the JUSTICE LEAGUE/LEGION OF SUPERHEROES CROSSOVER: THE GOLD LANTERN SAGA that I’ve been talking about for the last few months.

The annual bumped a few weeks in the schedule which officially changes its name from JUSTICE LEAGUE ANNUAL 2021 to, hold on to something, JUSTICE LEAGUE ANNUAL 2022.

For those keeping score, this is not an issue with the creatives or pandemic. There have been some DC editorial shifts. We are good to go.

After that, for our wrap up, from Justice league 72 to 74 you’re getting a different kind of Justice League book. For the last couple of years there’s been a main Justice League story with a Justice League Dark back up by another team. Instead, in 72 to 74, you’re getting THREE DOUBLE SIZED ISSUES IN A ROW that compile a giant JUSTICE LEAGUE/JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK CROSSOVER EVENT illustrated by the really talented Emanuela Lupacchino

…and Szymon Kudranski.

All authored by myself as my last statement on the book. Buuuuut not my last statement with Justice League as I will continue to be working on JUSTICE LEAGUE/ LEGION OF SUPERHEROES and NAOMI.

(Just like when I left Superman well over a year ago yet I’m still, as of yesterday, writing Superman, I’m leaving Justice league but I’m still writing Justice league so…)

Thank you all for supporting the book. I got to make some comics with some really cool people. I get to say I wrote Avengers and Justice League (and Legion and X-men) and that’s pretty cool.

(Is there a comics equivalent of the Five Timers club? 🙂

…feel free to preorder Justice league/Legion of superheroes. I’m obviously hoping that this news inspires some of you to try this beautiful Scott Godlewski book out.

…Broadcasting to you live from my perpetual state of gratitude…


The new Justice League series’ creative team is expected to be announced with DC Comics April 2022 solicitations likely in mid January 2022.
