DC Comics' storied superhero supergroup Justice League of America will become Justice League of Louisiana, sort of. On Wednesday, Feb. 20, the publisher will release its series of covers picturing League members hoisting every U.S. state flag. The latest series relaunch, written by Geoff Johns and illustrated by David Finch, begins with the 40-page issue No. 1 — the cover recalls Joe Rosenthal's (Pulitzer Prize-winning) iconic image of U.S. troops raising the American flag on Iwo Jima during World War II. Although it was taken before the battle ended, the shot marked a significant victory in the final stages of the campaign against Japan. The DC Comics' image features League members Catwoman, The Green Lantern and Green Arrow raising the Louisiana flag. Finch is a former Marvel Comics artist who helmed DC's Batman: The Dark Knight, which wrapped 15 issues before he began working on the latest Justice League series. — Alex Woodward
