Justice League United begins in April 2014

In an interview with USA Today, Jeff Lemire discussed the upcoming Justice League United. Originally leaked as Justice League Canada and making the rounds on the Internet as JL, Eh?  The title's new name reflects it's new scope.

Lemire told Brian Truitt, "It's very much a swashbuckling, world-jumping space adventure, We decided it was a good idea to expand the scope of the series."

Now that's a Team
Justice League United #0 will hit shelves in April 2014 and feature a team including Martian Manhunter, Adam Strange, Green Arrow, Animal Man, Stargirl and Supergirl.  I'm sure others will be joining them including the Cree teenager Lemire spoke of last year when the book was initially announced.

Mike McKone will handle the art duties of the book and though he's recently worked mostly Marvel titles, his time spent on New Avengers and Astonishing X-Men among others is pretty impressive.

I personally love Adam Strange and the whole pulpy, adventure aspect promised by Lemire. I'm going to have to wheel and deal to persuade Eric to give me this book to review. Maybe I can trade him Catwoman...
