Both Cartoon Network's JUSTICE LEAGUE and Kids' WB!'s X-MEN: EVOLUTION animated series will have their own comic books this fall.


JUSTICE LEAGUE ADVENTURES #1 will arrive on Nov. 14, sporting a cover by JUSTICE LEAGUE producer Bruce Timm and painter Alex Ross. The series, edited by Dan Raspler, will have single-issue stores with a rotating creative team.


The first issue, written by Ty Templeton with art by Min S. Ku and Dan Davis, focuses on Green Lantern, who is the John Stewart version of the character in the show.


Marvel Comics waited until X-MEN: EVOLUTION's second season to start a comic based on the show. "We want to make sure it's not just a pale imitation of the cartoon," Marvel editor-in-chief Joe Quesada said.


The book will be written by Devin Grayson with art by Long Vo, Charles Park and Saka of Studio XD for Udon.


There is no word yet if the comic will feature the several new characters who will be introduced to the show next month in the second-season opener.


The first issue goes on sale Nov. 28.


JUSTICE LEAGUE will premiere on Cartoon Network on Saturday, Nov. 17. The second season of X-MEN: EVOLUTION is expected to begin on Kids' WB! on Sept. 15.
