As Brad Meltzer’s 12-issue run on Justice League comes to a close, DC announced today that Dwayne McDuffie will take over in September, beginning with a JLA Wedding Special, which ships just before Issue 13. Executive Editor Dan DiDio told Newsarama that McDuffie will write the title “until he doesn’t want to write it anymore.”
