DC has just announced Carlos D’Anda as the fill-in artist for Justice League #8. They describe D’Anda as a “fan favorite,” but probably not the kind of fan favorite you were expecting. D’Anda is a concept artist for the Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City video games, so his art probably has a higher profile than most of DC’s staff, even if the name doesn’t come to the tip of your tongue. He’s also drew the Batman: Arkham City comic last year. It probably slipped the mind of a lot of people, but he’s drawn the Justice League before — Peter Milligan’s Kid Amazon arc from JLA: Classified, back in 2007.
Jim Lee is scheduled to be back for issue #9.
Todd Allen wears a lot of hats. At various times he’s been (alphabetically), a bouncer, college professor, humor columnist, Internet producer and an NBA/WNBA Beat Writer, among other things. He’s the author of Economics of Digital Comics. You should probably read it.
