It seems like DC is starting to rotate out some of their creative teams as they have also announced the new creative team of Christopher Priest and Pete Woods, who will take over the writing and art duties, respectively, of Justice League starting with issue #34. Priest is an Eisner-nominated scribe for his work on Deathstroke while Woods has done art in the past for both Robin and Action Comics. The storyline, dubbed “Lost,” will kick off with Batman making a mistake that proves to shake up DC’s number one team. Priest’s enthusiasm for his new duties is off the charts and doesn’t plan to abandon the approach that made his Deathstroke run such a success:
I am really excited and very intimidated by the opportunity to step onto DC’s largest stage—the Festival of Big Gun Characters Priest Has Never Before Been Invited To Write. It is my goal to mine a bit of new ore from this 50+ year old franchise by taking the tack Geoff Johns and I developed for Deathstroke: a ‘real world’ approach and exploring the characters’ humanity introspectively.
Even artist Pete Woods is excited for the new venture. He said, “I’m going to be bringing everything I have to this book, it’s gonna be a fun ride! I love these characters.”
Check out the new creative team on December 6 when part one of Lost hits comic shops and digital in Justice League #34.
