Scott Snyder has confirmed via Twitter that he plans for his Justice League run to last “at least 50 issues.” The tweet was likely posted in response to some fan confusion around the fact that James Tynion IV is the credited writer for issue #5.
“Just for clarity: I’m on Justice League for at least 50 issues. Not going anywhere for a looong time. But! Every five or so issues of Justice League will be a Legion of Doom chapter where [Tynion] tells the story from the villains’ side and reveals big secrets.”
Snyder also revealed that the series would be made up of standalone arcs that will tie together later.
“Each Arc of Justice League will be self contained, but they’ll build on each other with regard to the characters’ relationships and the bigger plot, all of it culminating in a big, big way in 2019.”
Justice League #6 arrives in stores August 15.
