DC announced today that Eisner-winning Jeff Lemire will be taking over for Peter Milligan on Justice League Dark starting at issue #9. I know professional journalism is supposed to be unbiased, but we all know it isn’t, and I cannot contain my excitement for this news. I could not think of anyone I would rather crafting this title. Jeff Lemire has been absolutely killing every book he lays his pen to, and now he gets a chance to rework some more major Vertigo icons. Lemire has said that this is his “dream gig at DC”, and given his passion for JLD characters, I have no doubt this will become an even more incredible series. Following his thriving success on Animal Man, Lemire now hopes to do the same with the gang of misfit heroes. Check below for the release details.
UPDATE: It was announced that Peter Milligan will be writing Stormwatch also starting at issue #9, after his leave on JL Dark.
UPDATE 2: Jeff Lemire Will be leaving his post on Franeknstein, and will be replaced by Matt Kindt, another very talented writer.
