“So, tweaks and edits aside. JUSTICE LEAGUE is done. Thanks for all the support; as always we can’t do it without you,” Hitch said in a series of tweets. “My last JL story LEGACY starts soon and runs 26-31. Proud of that and the art by Fernando Pasarin is just bloody wonderful. He’s a genius.”

Hitch started working on DC’s iconic superhero team with Justice League of America in 2015, and subsequently moved on to Justice League for “Rebirth.”

As for his future projects, Hitch tweeted, “I’m prepping and working on stuff for after that which is astonishing and exciting. Such a big canvas and broad scope. Hurrah.”

Justice League #26, the start of Hitch’s “Legacy” arc, hits shelves this week.
