'We're exploring a universe that hasn't been explored yet — the "Bwa-Ha-Ha" universe or whatever. And DC was amenable. So we said, let's do it!' - Keith Giffen

It's one year later for the 31st century Justice League...

Newsarama: Keith, your book is continuing into June, along with a lot more books with a bit more humor in them. With the success of the Harley Quinn book, and the extra attention Justice League 3000 has been getting, I think people are figuring out that there's room in the comic book industry for books that don't take things too seriously.

Keith Giffen: I've been saying that for years! I've been out there all alone saying it's OK to laugh and have a little bit of fun. With Justice League 3000, we have an obvious sense of humor.

"Lately, I've had a lot more fun writing female characters than male. I'm doing a female character comic coming up — I unfortunately have to be secretive about that one for now — and it was honestly more fun than I've had in years." - Keith Giffen, talking about what he eventually revealed was this story

From Justice League International (80s version) #19

When we last left our heroes...

scans-daily.dreamwidth.org/5194756.html

...Manga Khan had sent Lobo to kill the JLI space team, who were pursuing him to free the captured Mister Miracle, who the Cluster is taking to Apokolips. Barda, not wanting to kill their foe, teleported Lobo out of their hair. Unfortunately, where he landed was the JLI headquarters in New York. Even more unfortunately, he hit Guy Gardner on the head on his way in.

The Earth JLI doesn't know this mysterious visitor, just that he looks mean. They realize their problems are even worse when Guy has announced he's reverted to his old, obnoxious, personality.

'We had so much fun with Beetle and Booster -- and it was actually a toss up, by the way, as to who was in the refrigerator. It was either going to be Beetle and Booster or Fire and Ice. I couldn't get Fire and Ice out of my head, so since I pretty much hijacked the book and said, "Hey, it's my universe! Go away!" Why not?' - Keith Giffen

The League moves into their new embassies. Bruce & Guy are going over the one in Moscow, Dinah, Beetle, & Booster the one in Paris. The rest are handling the New York City embassy. The building is a fixer-upper.

A lot of us preferred the old pre-The Killing Joke Joker of the 70s and most of the 80s. Unlike the version since, there was so much variety in the types of stories you could do with him. You could do dark. You could do comedy. You could do dark comedy. It was whatever the writers felt like doing, that day.

Here's a story that was published the same day as The Killing Joke. The Joker has been contracted to kill the JLI. As this is the BWAHAHA era of the Justice League, you can guess how well that's going to go.




A cold, hard look into the terror and violence of insanity. Or something.

'Comics are supposed to be fun. Like, "Oh my God I can't believe they did that!" I don't care about your convoluted continuity. I don't care how serious you want us to take your superheroes. I don't care about Hollywood. I'm not trying to make my books Hollywood friendly or easy to turn into a movie. I want it to be difficult, because we're going to go out and we're going to have fun. Right now, Justice League 3000 is the book I'm having the most fun doing, bar none. You're welcome to join us if you'd like to.' - Keith Giffen

'That was, for a while, the way comics were being run. If the editor didn't like the direction a book was going, it didn't matter how well it sold -- they'd get in there and start pinching and tweaking and fucking it up. But lately -- and I know this for a fact, I've talked to people who actually make these decisions -- it's loosening up. It's really loosening up. They're actually saying, "You know what? You're always saying, 'If I was left alone, I would do this and this and this. I'd make this book popular.' Fine. The shackles are off. Go."'

'The minute I realized, "Oh my God, they mean it!" I said, "Why don't we bring Beetle and Booster back?" And they said, "Okay." I thought, "Oh, wow, they didn't take a swing at me. I don't feel like a wac-a-mole." I went, "Well, I'm also going to say it's not the New 52 universe -- it's going to be a whole different universe." They said, "Okay."' - Keith Giffen

Oh my, this IS a tough one, I've been a sucker for team books all my life; the X-Men, the New Mutants, the Legion of Super-Heroes, the JLA, the JSA (Who I mostly knew about through the JLA/JSA crossovers), the All-Star Squadron, Grant Morrison's Doom Patrol, the Batman Family (which I knew when it was at the more ... manageable scale of one Batman, one Batgirl, one Robin and then a replacement Robin and a Nightwing... not that I didn't like the additions, but...) and of course, the New Teen Titans. I'd even count the five principle Bronze Saints from Saint Seiya as a team.

All these have been part of my comic reading experience since the age of... well let's not go there, so picking one is like being asked to pick between a boxful of cute, but different puppies. It's almost impossible.

But, whilst I've posted a LOT of New Mutants and New Teen Titans and Batman Family stuff over the years, there was always one team which was THE team... and it might not be one you'd think of, but it holds a special place in my heart.

The Legion of Super-Heroes )

Spoilers for... well, the New52 DCU concept as a whole I guess...

I'm not even going to mention who is going to be showing up in JL3000 #12 in the tags, just to maximise the surprise.

Trust me, it's a weird one )
