Back in January, DC announced the upcoming Justice League: No Justice event occurring after Dark Nights: Metal. Following the four-week Justice League event, Scott Snyder will be writing a new Justice League series. DC has announced the art team for the new series.

Jim Cheung (Marvel’s Young Avengers) and Jorge Jiménez (Superman, Super Sons) will join Snyder in launching DC’s flagship Justice League comic book in June.

The Justice League will be thrown into a mystery and have to face their deadliest foes. In the first issue, Martian Manhunter will attempt to protect the team from the threat that could shatter everything they know.

Jim Cheung made the following statement:

“I am extremely honored, and happy, to be able to launch Justice League with Scott and Jorge. 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.”

The first issue is on sale June 2, and the series ships biweekly with issue #2 on sale June 20, featuring art by Jiménez.

In the second issue, the League is faced with an impossible decision with drastic consequences. Martian Manhunter and Batman will attempt to bring an old ally back to the team. While all this is going on, the Flash and Hawkgirl face  new challenges that could rewrite their mythologies.

Jiménez had this to say about working on the title.

“Working on Justice League is probably the most exciting opportunity I’ve ever had in my career. 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!

One last thing for my friends, family and fans. Quiero aprovechar para decir que el colorista Alejandro Sanchez es tan importante como el que más en este equipo LIGA DE LA JUSTICIA. ¡Tenemos entre manos a los mejores personajes del mundo del cómic! y prometo que daremos nuestro máximo esfuerzo para que luzcan lo más frescos, dinámicos y atractivos que podamos!”
