For fans that have been looking forward to Justice League 3000 and the expected release date of October 4th you will have to wait a little longer. The title has been moved back into December for release. There was been a creative team change with artist Kevin Maguire leaving the title before the #1 issue had even hit shelves. He broke the news to the world when he tweeted the following two statements on August the 8th.
“I think I was just fired — Kevin Maguire (@maguirekevin)”
“Anyone have any comics they need drawn? — Kevin Maguire (@maguirekevin)”
He also released the following statement on Facebook.
“Well, first off, thanks everyone for your warm regards. After a few confusing hours, I kind of know where things stand and why. Though I’m still a bit perplexed as to how it got to this point. As for work, I’ve been offered some fun interesting stuff, many of which came from DC,who were very eager to keep me working there, so I’ll be fine on that score, but it would have been great to do another Justice League with Giffen and DeMatteis. Oh,well…onward and upward…”
It has been reported that Howard Porter is the new artist and will be redrawing issue #1 as well. When writer Keith Giffen was reached he gave the following statement to Newsarama.
“The guy who nailed the character designs on the interior of the book? The guy who teamed with Grant Morrison to make JLA a hit? This is what they call a no-brainer,” series co-writer Keith Giffen said in a exclusive statement to Newsarama. “Welcome aboard Howard. I think this is the beginning of a beautiful collaboration.”
