Justice League Become Dinosaurs in DC Comics' 'The Jurassic League'

The Justice League becomes the defenders of truth, justice, and the prehistoric way in The Jurassic League which kicks off with a six-issue miniseries in May depicting the Justice League as you’ve never seen them…. As Dinosaurs.

Batman is the Allosaurus, Wonder Woman is the Triceratops, Superman is the Brachiosaurus, and more.

DC Comics released the following details and art:

You know the story: an infant escapes the destruction of its home planet and is deposited on Earth to be raised by human parents. A goddess from a lost city defends truth. A Theropod dons the visage of a bat to strike fear into evildoers’ hearts. This heroic trinity, alongside a league of other super-powered dinosaurs, join forces to save a prehistoric Earth from the sinister machinations of Darkseid. Wait...what? Okay, maybe you don’t know the story. So join us and bear witness to a brand-new—yet older than time—adventure and experience the Justice League as you have never seen them before!

“Jurassic League is all I want to draw: dinos and epic fights,” said writer and artist Juan Gedeon. “My own version of a 90s cartoon or videogame. Expect a story about survival, unity and hope where the strong protect the weak in a world where danger lurks in every corner.”

The Jurassic League is a six-issue limited series written by Daniel Warren Johnson (WONDER WOMAN: DEAD EARTH) and Juan Gedeon (PENNYWORTH) launching on May 10, 2022. Gedeon is also handling the artwork, while Johnson will provide the main cover artwork for all six issues. Issue #1 will also have a 1:25 Megalustre “Dino Skin” variant cover by Walt Simonson (DETECTIVE COMICS) and an open variant by Gedeon that will be revealed at a later date.

“It's been an absolute pleasure to join Juan Gideon in creating a new world for DC, complete with dinos, cavemen, and extinction-level events,” said writer and cover artist Daniel Warren Johnson. “Batsuar suplexes a Joker dilophosaurus, you're welcome!”

“Words cannot express how excited I am for this book,” said DC Senior Editor Katie Kubert. “As a life-long dinosaur lover, and a dinosaur tour-guide and fossil preparer for two of the most prestigious natural history museums, this book speaks to my heart and science-soul. When Juan came to me with the idea, and Daniel Warren Johnson doubled down on it, I knew we had something truly special and I can’t wait for fans to fall in Mezosoic-love.”

Fans can order The Jurassic League #1 at their local comic book shop and it will be available in-store on May 10, 2022.
