DC Comics has just released preview images of their anticipated mini-series Justice League Vs. Suicide Squad, featuring some lovely, detailed art by Jason Fabok.
Justice League Vs. Suicide Squad is touted to be the first major multi-franchise crossover of the DC Rebirth era. Yes, we know that “Night of the Monster Men” was technically the first one, but that was amongst the Batman titles. Justice League Vs. Suicide Squad will link two franchises that have never really interacted before.
The event will be regulated to a weekly six-part mini-series that will be written by Joshua Williamson and feature some of DC’s top artists. Fabok (The Darkseid War) will draw issue one, Tony Daniel will do the art for issue two (Deathstroke), Jesus Merino will handle issue three (Superman), Fernando Pasarin (Batman and Robin Eternal) will do issue four, Robson Rocha (Green Lanterns) will be on issue five, and it will be topped off with art by Howard Porter (Grant Morrison’s JLA) in issue six.
In addition to the mini-series, there will be tie-ins to Suicide Squad and Justice League‘s own comics. The events of the crossover will lead to Batman creating his own Justice League team that will be seen in the upcoming Justice League of America by Steve Orlando and Ivan Reis. Here is the publisher’s solicitation for Justice League Vs. Suicide Squad:
The first major event storyline of DC’s Rebirth era begins with a day Amanda Waller always knew would come: the Justice League discovers the existence of the Suicide Squad! This government-sponsored black-ops team of super-villains with bombs implanted in their brains is obviously a deal-breaker for Earth’s paragons of truth and justice! But you can bet that the Wall and her Task Force X won’t go down without the fight to end all fights as this weekly series gets underway!
