MTV Geek broke the news yesterday that Jeff Lemire, currently writing Animal Man and Justice League Dark as part of DC’s New 52, as well as his creator-owned title Sweet Tooth for Vertigo, will take over writing duties on Green Arrow next year.
He will be joined by I, Vampire artist Andrea Sorrentino for what looks set to be the most exciting creative team since Green Arrow was relaunched last year.
Lemire confirmed the news on his blog and he certainly sounds pumped up by the prospect of writing the adventures of Oliver Queen.
If the teaser image above of Sorrentino’s art is anything to go by, the book is going to look beautiful too. The cover image for the first issue by this creative team has also been revealed by MTV, and as you can see it looks absolutely stunning.
The new creative team starts with issue #17 in February 2013.
