Although he's already taken on "Larfleeze" and "Trinity of Sin: Phantom Stranger," J.M. DeMatteis will take on a whole new side of the DC Universe in November. CBR News can exclusively announce that DeMatteis, paired with artist Mikel Janin, will take over "Justice League Dark" from current writer Jeff Lemire in November, starting with issue #25. DeMatteis joins the book following Ray Fawkes' single issue of the series in October.

DeMatteis is also slated to debut the highly-anticipated "Justice League 3000" ongoing series along with co-writer Keith Giffen in October. Although the writing duo were scheduled to begin the series with fellow "Justice League" collaborator Kevin Maguire, the artist revealed yesterday that he would no longer be drawing the book.
