Artist launches Batman and The Justice League manga on Monday
The August issue of Akita Shoten‘s Champion RED magazine revealed on Monday that Shiori Teshirogi will publish the Justice League Origin: Wonder Woman manga in the magazine’s September issue on July 19. The magazine didn’t specify if the manga would be a one-shot or a longer series, but it did list the manga as a “special project.” As the title suggests, the manga will tell the “origin story” for Wonder Woman, and commemorates the upcoming release of the Wonder Woman film in Japan on August 25.

The manga features Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Cyborg, Green Lantern, and Aquaman. The story features the Justice League heading to Gotham City to protect the world from the Joker and an alliance of super-villains.
DC Entertainment (DCE) president Diane Nelson and publisher Jim Lee announced the manga in March in a presentation for media and business partners in Japan. A major theme of the presentation was expanding DC’s reach with younger generations and girls.
