From CBR:

Spinning out of the Justice League: No Justice four-issue miniseries, DC Comics will launch two new Justice League titles with all-new rosters. Justice League Dark will be written by James Tynion IV with art by Alvaro Martinez, Raul Fernandez and Brad Anderson, and Justice League Odyssey with writer Joshua Williamson and art by Stjepan Sejic. Both titles will launch in June.

The announcement came today at WonderCon in Anaheim during DC’s Publishing Panel. Justice League Dark‘s roster will consist of Zatanna, Swamp Thing, Man-Bat, Detective Chimp and Wonder Woman (team leader). Justice League Oddysey will have Cyborg, Starfire, Jessica Cruz and Azrael, with Darkseid as the team’s “Hannibal Lecter.”

[It was previously revealed that Scott] Snyder and artists Jim Cheung and Jorge Jimenez will relaunch Justice League biweekly in June, with a roster of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Cyborg, Aquaman, Green Lantern (John Stewart), Hawkgirl and Martian Manhunter.

Commentary: Since DC Rebirth, the Justice League books have continued to be some of the weakest parts of the DC lineup.  Hopefully NO JUSTICE and the books spinning out of it will help to turn that around.  All three of these books sound great, with top notch creative teams and great rosters.  I am especially happy to see Jessica Cruz.  I've been really enjoying her and Baz in GREEN LANTERNS, and I have been hoping to see her taking on a bigger role in the DC Universe.

It's also great to have JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK back.  I've always enjoyed books like that, going back to DC's SHADOWPACT.  DC has some real fun supernatural elements, and it just makes sense to me to put them back in the spotlight.  

This is definitely the most excited I have been about JUSTICE LEAGUE in a long time!
