DC Comics has announced Justice League: Last Ride, a new 16-part digital-first series from writer Chip Zdarsky, artist Miguel Mendonça, and colorist Enrica Eren Angiolini.
The first part of the story is slated to hit digitally on April 14, 2021, kicking off a story that involves the League breaking up, an unthinkable tragedy, and ultimately a chance for reconciliation amid the backdrop of “the universe’s greatest murder trial.” This marks the first prolonged work for Zdarsky as a writer with DC, having been Marvel exclusive for some years before starting to dabble with short pieces in DC anthology comics.
You can find the full press release about the new series below, along with a cover by Darick Robertson and a variant cover by series artist Mendonça.
Eisner award-winning writer Chip Zdarsky, all-star artist Miguel Mendonça and colorist Enrica Eren Angiolini attempt to fix a broken Justice League in time to stave off the universe’s final hours in Justice League: Last Ride, a new Digital First limited series from DC.
Once, the Justice League was the most powerful collection of superheroes in the universe. But an unthinkable tragedy within its ranks has caused Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman to go their separate ways, leaving the League broken and disbanded under a veil of anger and mistrust. Now, against the backdrop of the universe’s greatest murder trial, can the League reconcile the past before they’re eradicated by the greatest villains in the cosmos?
Featuring a main cover by Darick Robertson and card stock variant by series artist Mendonça, Justice League: Last Ride uncovers the shocking truth behind the League’s greatest failure and their ability to rise above to protect the universe on final time. This limited series will be available as sixteen weekly, digital chapters, followed by eight monthly print issues. The first digital chapter debuts on participating digital platforms on Wednesday, April 14, 2021, with the print issue launching in comic book stores on Tuesday, May 11. 2021. Each 10-page digital chapter sells for $.99 and each 32-page monthly print issue sells for $3.99, with the print card stock variant available for $4.99.
