Before Batman takes over a new Justice League of America in February 2017, some of its core members will get their chance in the spotlight in January, in the form of four JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA: REBIRTH one-shots. These stories reintroduce these heroes for the first time in the REBIRTH era, featuring input from DC President and Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, and we’ve got some new artwork to end (or kick off) your week!
On sale January 4, JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA: THE ATOM REBIRTH #1, picks up on clues left in DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH #1, featuring Ivy University physics student Ryan Choi. As if battling social anxiety and severe allergies wasn’t enough, Ryan’s first day at school marks the start of an epic journey into the very heart of the DC Universe! Here’s a first look at some interiors and the variant cover from artist Andy MacDonald!
The mistress of animal mastery makes her debut on January 11 in JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA: VIXEN REBIRTH #1! Mari McCabe’s got it all together: one of the country’s most successful businesswomen, an iconic fashion pioneer and a crusader for social justice – all before she could command the powers and abilities of the animal kingdom! But it wasn’t always so, and this one-shot will tell the story of her path to becoming the heroic Vixen and joining the JLA, courtesy of Steve Orlando and Jody Houser, with art (and variant cover) by Jamal Campbell!
Steve Orlando and artist Stephen Byrne also bring the return of a classic hero for a new generation in JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA: THE RAY REBIRTH #1, on sale January 18. All his life, Ray Terrill has been locked indoors, raised in the dark, suffering from a medical condition that could be fatal to himself and anyone he meets. Ray Terrill is dangerous. A freak. Or is he? Orlando and Byrne combine to tell a powerful tale of realizing your true self and letting your light shine, as THE RAY takes his place among the JLA’s finest! Check out these early pages and variant cover by Stephen Byrne!
On January 25 (and spinning out of the JUSTICE LEAGUE VS. SUICIDE SQUAD event), Killer Frost goes from villain to hero(?) in JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA: KILLER FROST REBIRTH #1, co-written by Steve Orlando and Jody Houser, with art by Mirka Andolfo. As a “graduate” of Amanda Waller’s Task Force X, Killer Frost is up for parole and joining the rest of the JLA. But you can count on “The Wall” not making Frost’s exit from Belle Reve an easy one! Check out this early page art and variant cover from Mirka Andolfo!
