Constantine Writer Si Spurrier, Takes On Justice League Ongoing With Aaron Lopresti and Matt Ryan

From the new DC Comics June 2020 solicitations, former Bleeding Cool contributor Si Spurrier, will take over the writing of the Justice League ongoing series beginning June's #48 and #49 for three-part story, The Rule of War. He will continue to write the ongoing Constantine series for DC – and Alienated for Boom. I'm just holding on for a 53rd episode of Short And Curlies…

Oh hey, look at his solicit for Constantine as well. Given that a) Constantine is most associated with his co-creator Alan Moore b) Si Spurrier has continued Alan Moore-originated comics like Crossed +100 and c) this seems to involve a fish-based aggressive 'lover'… will we be getting a lot of HOOORK HOOOOOORK HOOOOOOOOORK sound effects? And yes, I decided to get in with that before Jude did…
