Justice League's New Comic Book Artist is Jason Fabok
Fabok's first issue will be Justice League #36, written by Geoff Johns, who has been on the title since the launch of the New 52 in September 2011.
"How about getting a call from Geoff Johns at 12’oclock midnight and having him offer you the art duties on Justice League? I was so blown away I don’t think I slept all week," Fabok told Buzzfeed, the outlet that broke the news.
Fabok's profile has been on the rise ever since taking on Batman projects Detective Comics and Batman Eternal. It's easy to see a strong Lee influence in his art, so readers can expect the series to maintain its same visual identity.
Justice League #36 will see the continuation of The Amazo Virus story that starts in Justice League #35, out in September. And if the cover is to be believed, Power Ring is a new member of the team. She's like Green Lantern but fueled by fear and pain instead of willpower. Might not sound like a good fit for a team of heroes, but hey, Lex Luthor and Captain Cold are on the roster, too.
Here's the solicit text for Fabok's first issue:
"THE AMAZO VIRUS” continues! A bizarre disease has been unleashed, America has been quarantined and the whole world is at a stand still – but no one on the League may be more affected by this than Batman! What deadly secret about the League does the Amazo Virus hold? Where did it come from? Who unleashed it and why? And what does it mean for the future of the world’s greatest heroes?
