New ‘Justice League of America’ will include Oklahoma cover
DC Comics is launching a new “Justice League of America” title this month, and every state in the United States — plus Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico — will have a chance to celebrate with a specialized cover.
The cover for Oklahoma features the heroes Green Lantern Simon Baz, Green Arrow, Catwoman and Vibe hoisting the state’s flag. Each cover will feature a different flag representing the various states. The main cover will feature the heroes hoisting the American flag.
The creative team for the title is writer Geoff Johns and artist David Finch. Johns’ “Justice League” No. 1 in 2011, with artist Jim Lee, was the best-selling comic book of the year. That “Justice League” comic, still ongoing, features Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Green Lantern, Flash and Cyborg.
The “Justice League of America,” meanwhile, features some lesser-known heroes.
“They’re underdogs who have everything to prove and something to lose,” Johns said in a news release.
In addition to the aforementioned heroes, “Justice League of America” will also star Katana, Martian Manhunter, Stargirl, and Hawkman. The comic is set for Feb. 20 release.
The comic will tie into DC Comics’ upcoming “Trinity War” event.
Green Arrow is likely the best-known hero in the series, both in the fictional DC Comic and in the larger world. The show “Arrow,” on the CW, follows the adventures of the young Oliver Queen. Green Arrow has his own comic-book series as part of DC Comics’ “New 52,” as does Catwoman. Katana and Vibe are each slated to star in new ongoing series beginning in February.
