DC started the Metal event last year, where the Justice League takes on evil version of Batman from the Dark Multiverse. The event series reunited the dynamic duo of Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo. Before Metal, the DC Multiverse consisted of 52 Earths—the Dark Multiverse opened potentially an unlimited version of negative Earths. There have been a few theories that try to explain the Dark MU and how it connects to the rest of the DC Multiverse, ultimately the answers lay within the pages of Metal.
Snyder has said, on several occasions, that when DC’s Metal ends, the DC Universe will never be the same again. When Metal ends with issue #6 in March, Snyder will be joined with James Tynion IV and Joshua Williamson for a four-issue mini-series, Justice League: No Justice. With art from Francis Manapul, the series will kick off on May 9th.
When No Justice concludes, a new set of Justice League comics will start in June—with Snyder writing the flagship title. Tynion, Williamson, and more will head up other Justice League titles. No artists have been announced, though with Manapul’s involvement in No Justice could mean he joins one of the titles.
Talking with IGN, Snyder had this to say:
“We thought we knew the entire map of the DC cosmos. We thought we had explored all there was to explore. But now we know that all this time the Multiverse was nothing but a fishbowl, and now we’ve been dumped into the ocean, unleashing terrifying new threats, and wondrous new possibilities. Metal opened channels of storytelling that Francis, James, Joshua and I are excited to explore in a big way. When we’re finished, fans will never look at the Justice League in the same way again.”
No Justice will find Brainiac warning the Justice League about a new threat that endangers Earth. Despite having new recruits, the Justice League realized they aren’t enough to stop the threat. Brainiac has a plan: heroes and villains teaming up to form four specialized Justice League teams. The fate of Earth, and the entire DC Multiverse, is in their hands.
Current Justice League titles and creative teams will be wrapping up their runs to make room for the new titles spinning out of No Justice. Justice League team, Christopher Priest and Pete Woods, will end their run on April 18th with issue #43. While Justice League of America team, Steve Orlando and various artists, will end on April 11th with issues #29.
About No Justice, Manapul had the following to say:
“I’m laying out the biggest action of my life. The Justice League realizes that they need to expand their reach to become something bigger than they have ever been before. If you thought my work for Justice League: Darkseid War was huge, I’m taking the League to the edge of the cosmos with ‘No Justice.’ Anyone who has asked for Harley Quinn, Martian Manhunter, Starfire, Zatanna, The Atom, Raven, or Doctor Fate to be in their personal Justice League will stand up and cheer.”
‘No Justice’ will begin with a four-issue weekly mini-series on May 9th, with new Justice League titles beginning in June.
