The beloved animation Justice League Unlimited, from the early 2000s, is finally getting its own comic book continuation this year from DC.
A digital-first release (no, I don't know why, either), beginning May 13, the seven-issue mini-series, co-written by Justice League Unlimited producer James Tucker and series writer J.M. DeMatteis with art by Ethen Beavers, of Justice League Infinity will be available in print from July 7.
This new series stars all of the fan-favourite characters from the revered series – Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, The Flash, Green Lantern John Stewart, Hawkgirl and Martian Manhunter – banding together to face new dangers that not only threaten Earth, but the multiverse itself.
These new stories will also give Tucker, DeMatteis and Beavers the chance to incorporate a host of new characters from across the DC Multiverse when bringing these animated heroes and villains to comics.
In this debut issue, there is a being wandering the universe searching for its true purpose, but what it finds out on the farthest edges of the cosmos will change not just our universe, but many!
Meanwhile, the war for the throne of Apokolips arrives on Earth, and the true ruler will only be decided one way: Who can destroy the Justice League?The DC website continues:
