Remember how DC announced that Geoff Johns and Doug Mahnke would be reuniting on Justice League of America? Well, that reunion seems to be short lived.
DC announced Forever Evil, a new seven issue miniseries focusing on the fallout of Trinity War. Featuring a 3D motion cover (ugh), the new miniseries will focus on supervillains taking control of the world after the Justice League is (spoilers!) taken out of commission. The series will be written by Johns, with art by David Finch (which explains why he was shuffled off Justice League of America three issues after the series started). Matt Kindt will temporarily take over JLA for five issues during Forever Evil which will crossover with several other titles.
DC also announced three new miniseries, each of which will tie into the Forever Evil event. Forever Evil: Rogues will be written by Flash writer Brian Buccellato with art by Patrick Zircher and will focus on the Flash rogues. Forever Evil: Arkham War will be written by Pete Tomasi with art by Scot Eaton, and Forever Evil: ARGUS will be written by Kindt. Each miniseries will last five issues.
Oh, and DC also spoiled that Catwoman's not really dead, surprising no one. That sound you hear is dozens of fanboys smashing their keyboards and proclaiming that "NOW YOU MUST RESET THE COUNTER, OUTHOUSE, FOR A BRUTAL ONSCREEN EXECUTION DONE TO HURT A MALE SUPERHERO IS OKAY IF IT'S FAKE!" Unfortunately, they're missing the point.
Not to end things on a sour note, I'm cautiously optimistic. The creative teams announced are decent ones, and provided that Finch can get his comics drawn on time, this could be a fun, unifying series, something that DC hasn't had since its relaunch last September.
