The Hawks Set to Return in a New Justice Society Series

After years of teases, cameos, and even a canceled Geoff Johns/Bryan Hitch project, it appears that the Justice Society is finally returning. DC Comics announced the solicitations for November 2022 and the JSA was in the lineup. There will be a one-shot issue released on November 8. Details below the cover art!


And then two weeks later, a regular series by Geoff Johns kicks off.

From the 1940s to the 3040s, heroes take on the great evils of their time. But in the aftermath of Flashpoint Beyond, those heroes and villains will have their lives turned upside down. DC's future…and its past…will never be the same again. But how are Mime and Marionette connected to this? Why are Rip Hunter and the Time Masters the most unlikable heroes in the DC Universe? And who or what is…Nostalgia? Don't miss the start of the strangest mystery to have ever plagued the DC Universe.

The JSA returns in this monthly series by writer Geoff Johns and artist Mikel Janín with "Justice Society of America: The New Golden Age Part One"! The world's first and greatest superheroes return! Or do they? A long-lost hero from the JSA crashes into our era with a grave warning… but it's too late. A mysterious and malevolent enemy has invaded the entire history of the JSA, and an all-new team must come together to defeat it. But what deadly secret does this messenger from beyond keep? Where are they from? And why is all of this happening now? Only the Time Masters know…

 It's been a long wait, but it appears that the JSA is finally coming back. Let's keep our fingers crossed for no cancelations or changes of plans. Let's hope Jim Lee can resist changing the series' name to Batman and the Justice Society before it comes out! Here are some more articles from other sites:

New Justice Society Comic!

Art by Bryan Hitch

It was announced on May 25th that there may be a new Justice Society comic coming our way. Details are very sketchy. There was no release date announced. Apparently, Geoff Johns is the writer and Bryan Hitch is the artist. Hawkman appears to be in the lineup but there is no sign of Hawkwoman. More details are coming I assume. I'll add two links to the news below. Stay tuned and Wings crossed!

Gardner Fox Biography!


If you're a comic book fan, you know who Gardner Fox is. He's one of the most prolific writers in the history of comics. From the 30s until his death in 1986, it is said that he wrote over 4,000 comic book stories, including 1,500 stories for DC Comics. He is the creator of Hawkman and Hawkgirl, as well as the Flash, Doctor Fate, Zatanna, and Sandman. He also created the very first superhero team, the Justice Society of America, and then the Justice League of America two decades later. Amazingly, there has never been an official biography or book about one of the greatest writers in Comic book history, but we finally have one.
Being a Hawkman and Justice League fan, I was looking forward to reading the first biography of Gardner Fox, the man who created so many iconic heroes and superhero teams. As I read the book, it became clear that the history of Gardner Fox is the history of comics. Jennifer has gathered all the information available on Gardner Fox (no small feat!) and put it into an easy-to-follow course on not only the father of the Justice League but also on the history of comics itself. If you are a fan of comic books, this is one book you will want to read! Amazon Link
