Written by Keith Giffen and Judd Winick, the bi-monthly comic will bring back classic characters such as Captain Atom, Booster Gold, Blue Beetle, Fire, Ice and Rocket Red. It will run for 26 issues.
Speaking to Newsarama, the scribes revealed that the project did not begin as a JLI venture. "In all of my years in comics, I have never experienced anything like the complete 180 this project took once the brainstorming kicked off," said Giffen.
"Like I said, when we started the writer's summit, the Justice League... hell, why mince words... Justice League International was not on the table. Then someone, and I really wish I remembered exactly who, stirred the JLI into the mix."
Winick added: "As I recall I said something small, you said something small, Geoff Johns said something along the lines of, 'Y'know what you guys should really do...' and Dan [DiDio] was nodding his head in agreement seeing where it was going, as a bunch of us began muttering, '... Justice League International'."
Justice League International: Generation Lost begins in May.
