DC Announces Two New Titles and 52 Variants for JLA

Each cover will focus on a different state.



Source: MTV Geek

With the cancellation of four titles last month, many were wondering if DC was finally going to end their attempt to publish 52 titles a month.  We discovered today that the answer is a resounding "no". 

In addition to Justice League of America and Threshold, DC will be releasing two new solo series in February.  The first, Katana, will be written by Ann Nocenti with art by  Alex Sanchez.  The second,  Vibe, will be written by Arrow writer Andrew Kreisberg  with art by Pete Woods.  That's right, in February, we'll be getting a Vibe ongoing series.  Digest that.

Also announced is that Jeff Lemire would be taking over Green Arrow, presumably to capitalize on the character's increased exposure in Justice League of America and Arrow.  Joining Lemire is artist Andrea Sorrentino.

Finally, DC announced that it would be releasing 52 variant covers for Justice League of America, the new series by Geoff Johns and David Finch.  Fifty-fucking-two variant covers.  50 of the covers will focus on individual states.  The only upside for this shameless cash grab is that DC won't force retailers to meet certain ordering levels in order to get certain covers in store.  Retailers will be able to order whatever covers they'd like and (allegedly) all will be equally available to all retailers. 

All in all, we get one bit of good news (Lemire on Green Arrow) two bits of non-impressive news (I'm sorry but a Vibe solo series sounds like it could rival G.I Combat for quickest cancelled New 52 series) and one humongous WTF in the 52 variant covers.  Someone needs to kill this variant fad.  It's officially over.

The stealth bad news is that I, Vampire is loosing its artist. Does that mean the book is also gone?
(As a trade waiter for the series, this is another one that's my fault. Sorry guys.)

A Vibe series featuring the REAL Vibe could probably last a while.
A Vibe series featuring the DCnU Vibe should go join nU Hawk and Dove in 8-issue cancellation.

Same goes for Dan and the Gang's one-dimensional killer-robot Katana's book, by the way.

Tell that to Dan and the Gang.
It's yet another indication that they foolishly believe this is the '90s all over again. :roll:

anyone bitching about Marvel's 20 variants for Uncanny Avengers better be bitching about DC's 52 variants for Justice League of America.

Green Arrow can't keep a regular writer can it? That'll make four different writers in 16 or so months. And I was starting to like what Ann Nocenti was doing on the book.

Vibe? I'd rather see a Global Guardians book.

Kitana? Could be interesting to see the Mortal Kombat universe crossover. It went soooo well in the video game. :derp:

But-- but it's just like them b*tching about Marvel ruining its characters!
It's somehow okay when DC ruins its characters in a similar manner!! :roll:

Trust DiDio-era DC to invent "serial screwing-up." :P

DON'T give them any more ideas for characters to ruin. :x

Kitana? Could be interesting to see the Mortal Kombat universe crossover. It went soooo well in the video game. :derp:


Better Kitana than Katana. :P

Yes, he has, in the DCnU Justice League of America picture and that one-shot back in May. Typical needless DCnU redesign, just because they've GOTTA reinvent the wheel. I've seen enough, thank you.

Dan and the Gang Are Not Ready for the real Vibe.
Tell them to come back when/if they ever are.

You think that because you are unaware that I have ideas for the REAL Vibe. 8)

That's YOUR idea, my friend, and no surprise there. :P
I, of course, have better ideas than that. 8)

Also, I don't think ol' Arthur goes for guys. :P :P
(You DO know that SLASHfic refers to a pairing of the SAME sex, right??)

So if the old Vibe was a breakdancer, will the new version be a hip-hop dancer? Or will he he be just gangnam style? :smt017
