Bryan Hitch Leaving “Justice League” Comic Book

Writer (and sometimes artist) Bryan Hitch has confirmed that he will end his run on the “Justice League” comic book with issue #31.

In a Tweet he revealed, “So, tweaks and edits aside. Justice League is done. Thanks for all the support; as always we can’t do it without you. I have a half dozen covers to do for Justice League, Wonder Woman, and The Wild Storm then it’s a full speed nosedive into Hawkman with Jeff Lemire. Going to be fun.”

“My last Justice League story, ‘Legacy,’ starts soon and runs 26-31. Proud of that and the art by Fernando Pasarin is just bloody wonderful. He’s a genius.”

“Justice League #31” is scheduled to be released on October 18, and will conclude the ‘Legacy’ story arc. Issue #32 is a tie-in to the “Metal” saga.
