Earlier today, MTV GEEK announced that beginning with issue #2, JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA will feature a new back-up series starring MANHUNTER co-written by Matt Kindt and Geoff Johns and illustrated by Scott Clark.

We asked Kindt about taking on the character Manhunter and here’s what he had to say, "I can't tell you how excited I am to be working on this. I grew up with the JLA and Manhunter was one of the few characters I felt had so much more un-mined potential than most of the other characters. His powers and abilities really lend themselves to the kind of stories I love to tell. And working with Geoff? That's like the cherry on top. But more than just being fun from the fan/reader part of me, we're really working to make the back-ups be an essential part of the reading experience. We're treating the back-up like the harmony to the main melody of the issue."


Head over to MTV GEEK for the first interview with Matt Kindt about the story.

JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #2 by Geoff Johns and artist David Finch arrives March 6, 2013.
