JLA – too many covers?

November 6th, 2012 by Jay Comments

DC Comics has announced 52 variant covers for Justice League of America #1, as well as two tie-in titles for the new series.

Vibe and Katana will launch as new ongoings in February alongside Geoff Johns and David Finch’s new team book, MTV Geek has revealed.

The 52 covers will represent the 50 states of the US as well as Washington DC and Puerto Rico.

Vibe will be tackled by Arrow writer Andrew Kreisberg and former Legion Lost artist Pete Woods.

Katana will be written by Ann Nocenti and drawn by Alex Sanchez.

“We’ve done a lot of great things with the ‘New 52, and now we’re putting the focus back on Justice League, with the launch of Justice League of America,” said DC co-publisher Dan DiDio.

“We want to make people realise that this is one of our key franchises, and we plan to build it out not just with the main Justice League titles, but other books that tie into them as well.

“Given the title of the comic and the year in which we’re announcing – an election year – we wanted to celebrate the country, as well as the various states.”

Jay says that he is a writer, martial artist, sketcher, and dreamer but mostly just a husband and father. Since getting married to the wonderful and patient woman of his dreams, and becoming a father (of two young boys), he has fallen into the category of 'lapsed nerd' as he is a former RPer, Live Role-Player, and comic book junkie. Science fiction and fantasy books are the staple of his shelves - both in terms of books and movies ... however, he's never seen Star Wars (any of them) but please don't hold that against him! He is currently trying to find a medical cure for the thing called sleep, as it is interferring with the thing he calls life. If you want to know more about him go to
