Justice League 3000 is being pushed back two months. The series, which had already been solicited for October, will be rescheduled for December, with Howard Porter joining the team as the new ongoing artist. Porter was the original design artist for the Justice League 3000 characters and replaces Kevin Maguire, who announced to fans yesterday that he had been fired off the series. Maguire later reported that he'd been offered work from several companies, including Marvel, Dark Horse and DC, but still didn't quite understand why he had been pulled from the book.
Newsarama first reported the news, which came along with this very enthusiastic quote from Keith Giffen:
The guy who nailed the character designs on the interior of the book? The guy who teamed with Grant Morrison to make JLA a hit? This is what they call a no-brainer. Welcome aboard Howard. I think this is the beginning of a beautiful collaboration.
I have no idea how to take that quote, so we'll just leave you to debate about its intentions in the comments. Anyways, welcome aboard, Howard. Here's hoping you don't get dumped unceremoniously from the book in a couple of months.
UDPATED: Kevin Maguire just tweeted this. Wonder what it could be in reaction to...
Well, that's...humiliating....— Kevin Maguire (@maguirekevin) August 9, 2013
And here's a more detailed reaction from Maguire.
