DC Announces New Legion of Super-Heroes Series to Be Written by Paul Levitz


DC today announced that this May will bring a new Legion of Super-Heroes series, which will be written by Paul Levitz, and feature artwork from Yildiray Cinar.

Readers were already expecting to see Levitz writing the Legion again, as this was announced when he stepped down as DC Publisher, however, it was announced at that time that he would be writing the Legion co-feature in Adventure Comics. Today’s news reveals that as well as the co-feature, he will be writing a completely Legion new series.

Here’s what he had to say about his return to the Legion:

“It’s such fun to be back in the future, blowing up planets, undoing Legion marriages, revealing unrevealed factoids, and starting improbable new relationships. If there’s a better job in comics than writing the Legion, with its vast cast and creative opportunities, I’ve never held it.”
