San Diego Comic Con has officially kicked off! We’re getting all kinds of new comic book announcements! This October, DC plans to release a brand new comic book series entitled Justice League Vs. Godzilla Vs. Kong. The plot details include the Justice League on a seemingly normal adventure fighting the Legion of Doom, until a portal opens up the Monster-Verse. This brings Gozilla and King Kong into the DC Universe for the heroes to fight.
As said by DC President Jim Lee: “As a comics fan—there’s nothing more fun and exciting than exploring those amazing ‘What If’ situations that come up when fandoms cross streams! In this case, it’s a matchup of the world’s greatest Super Heroes in the Justice League who take on not only the King of the Monsters—Godzilla—but the mighty Kong himself! It’s a crossover no-holds-barred battle, decades in the making, and no bona fide comics fan will want to miss it!”
The series will be written by Brian Buccalleto. Artwork will be handled by Christian Duce and Luis Guerrero. Drew Johnson, Jim Lee, Scott Williams, Dan Mora, Alan Quah, Rafael Albuquerque, and Francesco Mattina will provide variant cover art.
In the current DC continuity, there is no Justice League book being published. The Teen Titans have temporarily taken over as the main team of protectors for their universe. This series announcement might be exciting for fans hoping for a dose of Justice League content for the fall!
