After helping launch Batman Eternal, artist Jason Fabok is joining Geoff Johns for a run on Justice League. Starting with Justice League #36, as announced on Buzzfeed, Fabok will be the regular ongoing artist, replacing Ivan Reis and Joe Prado.
”How about getting a call from Geoff Johns at 12’oclock midnight and having him offer you the art duties on Justice League? I was so blown away I don’t think I slept all week,” the artist told Buzzfeed. “Geoff has been such a huge inspiration to me over the years reading his work and watching him weave these grand epics through the DC universe. In fact, one of my career goals was to get a chance to work with him on a project. To have the opportunity to draw the next chapter in his Justice League saga is an extreme joy and overwhelming to consider.”
Fabok didn’t give much hint as to what the storyline he’s drawing will be, only saying, “It’s going to get epic!”
