New Justice: Everything You Need Know About DC’s New Justice League Comics

By 5 Comments

Have you ever wanted to read Justice League or Teen Titans comics, but had no idea where to start? Well, you’re in luck! DC Comics has a brand new era of Justice League and Teen Titans comics to jump on with called New Justice.

This guide will give you everything you need to start reading this new era of comics, answering as many questions as possible along the way.

What Is New Justice?

New Justice is the branding for the start of a new era in Justice League/Teen Titans comics that set post-Dark Nights: Metal. This includes relaunches, jumping on points and new creative teams for Justice League and Teen Titans related comics.

Spinning Out Of Dark Nights: Metal

DC Comics has stated that the events of the massive Dark Nights: Metal will leave the DC Universe transformed in “terrifying and wondrous” ways. It’s in this post-Metal world that these new Justice League comics will be set in and may even deal with some of the consequences coming out of that event.

Do I Need To Read Dark Nights: Metal?

I wouldn’t worry too much if you haven’t read it. I’m going to say that it won’t be essential to read as these comics are not a direct continuation of Metal, but a starting point set in the world after it.

Although, I highly recommend it if love big action superheroics. You can find out more about this story in the Dark Nights: Metal Reading Order Checklist.

Transitioning Into Justice League: No Justice

Before we get to New Justice, DC will be releasing a miniseries called Justice League: No Justice, that will set up the New Justice status quo.

Here is what the solicitation for Justice League: No Justice #1 has to say about this series:

DARK NIGHTS: METAL left the DCU transformed in ways both terrifying and wondrous—and only the Justice League is strong enough to face the threats to come…or are they? Four giant beings comprised of the universe’s major energies—Mystery, Wonder, Wisdom and Entropy—who sustain their life force by devouring planets are on their way to destroy the planet of Colu. The only way to take down this unimaginable threat is for the superhero teams of Earth to forget everything they thought they knew and form new alliances.

It will consist of a prelude short story in the 25 cent DC Nation #0 and four main issues.

  • Why does the end of Justice League: New Justice #1 say at the end that the next issue would be called Doom on Earth? I can’t find it. And when I read #2 it kinda feels like I’m missing something… Any thoughts?

    • Hey John, don’t worry you haven’t missed anything! Doom on Earth is used as a teaser for the next issue. Writers (and sometimes editors) will use it as a replacement for “To Be Continued” as it’s more exciting and can set the tone for the next issue.

  • I just found your website, and I have to say that you are infinitely helpful for getting into comics. Thanks for this.
