R.I.P. Justice League? Joshua Williamson Rings The Death Knell For DC’s Premier Team

by Olly MacNamee

Writer Joshua Williamson will bring readers the death of the Justice League in the last issue of the current series. But that will only be the start of story. Beginning in Justice League #75, Williamson, along with artist Rafa Sandoval, will set up the next big DCU event with the death of some of DC’s biggest hitters. Nothing several of them haven’t been through before, right? As Williamson homself recognises in talking about this special issue:

“We’ve been building to the Death of the Justice League for the last year across the main line. I remember buying DEATH OF SUPERMAN 30 years ago and now we have an opportunity to take that idea and go bigger with it. JUSTICE LEAGUE 75 allows us to showcase why the Justice League are comics’ greatest heroes as we show the aftermath of the loss against their biggest threat ever and its impact on the DCU.” – Joshua Williamson

“A new  Dark  Army  made  up  of  the  DCU’s  greatest  villains  has  formed  on  the  edges  of  the  Multiverse and the best and most powerful heroes are pulled together in an epic war to push the darkness back. In the end, the Justice League are killed by the Dark Army with only one survivor to warn the remaining heroes of Earth about what is coming for them!”

“Being able to draw the Justice League is always exciting, they are just the greatest superhero team of all time. We will see a great evil coming out of the darkness and more dark characters that will be revealed very soon. This book is just the starting point and fans do not want to be left behind and miss what is going to happen.” – Rafa Sandoval

Justice League #75 will be available Tuesday 19th April from DC Comics
