Thanks to a Diamond Comic Distributors in a retailer-only report, we now know just who will be writing the JLA comic announced during the Spring. The answer comes in Steve Orlando. Orlando, who just signed with the company exclusively, The book will spin out of another book that was just announced by DC Entertainment, Justice League vs Suicide Squad. That book will serve as the first Rebirth crossover event and will run for just six issues. Below, you can find a quote from Geoff Johns about the series.
“This story is another building block to ‘Rebirth,’” said DC CCO/President Geoff Johns, who also wrote DC Universe: Rebirth #1. “With all of our heroes back on the board, it’s the super-villains turn. And the events within will set the stage for ‘Rebirth’ Phase 2 as a surprising team emerges and another piece of the puzzle of the future of the DC Universe, and the past, comes into focus.”
