DC Universe Online - new shots

Comic writer Geoff Johns now on board

The writer behind DC Comics such as Green Lantern, Action Comics and Justice Society of America will now put pen to paper for MMO, DC Universe Online.

"Having a writer of Geoff's caliber brings even more authenticity to the DC Universe Online, and should provide fans with an exciting new medium for his storytelling skills," said John Blakely, SOE-Austin's VP of Development. "Together with Jim Lee, who is our executive creative director for the game, we are tapping into the very best talent from the comic book industry."

Johns added, "Taking comic books into the online space presents an exciting and unique opportunity for me as a writer. I'm looking forward to creating a thrilling story that explains why the DC Universe has suddenly been populated with millions of new heroes and villains in a way that will engage players."

DCUO (that's catchy) is in the works for PS3 and PC. New shots below.
