New Creative Teams Coming to Justice League, Nightwing, and Green Lanterns

Via DC Comics Via DC Comics It’s a big day for DC Comics news as new creative teams have been announced for three of DC’s series! Christopher Priest and Pete Woods will take over Justice League starting with issue #34, Sam Humphries and Bernard Chang will take over Nightwing starting with issue #35, and Tim Seeley will take over Green Lanterns starting with issue #33. Sam Humphries and Tim Seeley will be essentially swapping book, as Humphries has been on Green Lanterns and Seeley has been on Nightwing since the start or Rebirth. In an exclusive interview with CBR.com, Sam Humphries talked about his time on Green Lanterns, saying “It was incredible writing two newly created characters, and watching them develop into fan favorites as I wrote their stories over the last year… It was very hard to say goodbye.” And in regards to his new venture with Nightwing, Humphries said “Dick Grayson is one of the greatest characters in all of the DCU — he’s got heart, humor, legacy and he kicks ass. That’s why this run is called ‘Nightwing: The Untouchable'”. Tim Seeley talked on Twitter about leaving Nightwing and picking up Lanterns:

Christopher Priest, like Humphries and Seeley, has been on Deathstroke since the beginning of Rebirth. In an interview with DC, Priest talked about the vision for Justice League: “My goal is to treat the Justice League more like a workplace drama. Although we will, of course, still have world threats, nasty villains (including Deathstroke!), and alien armadas, the League’s greater challenge will be to define their place in this new and increasingly cynical age.” Check out these images from Justice League #34:
