Nocenti and Sanchez Tease “Katana” #1

With last year’s announcement of Geoff Johns and David Finch’s “Justice League of America,” DC Comics revealed two companion books that would debut alongside “Justice League of America” — one of which was “Katana” written by Ann Nocenti with art by Alex Sanchez. With the series’ February 13 release fast approaching, DC has revealed new “Katana” #1 art by Sanchez and comments from Nocenti on its blog, The Source.

“Katana is a trained, disciplined martial artist. She removes herself from Birds of Prey to go on a personal journey in Japantown, San Francisco, and pursue a quest for vengeance against the Sword Clan, the men that killed her husband,” Nocenti said in an interview with MTV. “In ‘Katana’ #1, she fights COIL, who has a spiral sword, a whip of a sword, and she realizes she’s not just up against him, but legions. She is allowing herself to let loose, to unravel a bit, to fight this battle. But when the JLA calls — she’s all business. She’s a soldier in an army for them. Back to the restrained, disciplined fighter. She brings that to the team — a reliable, fearless martial arts master. But as things change in her solo book, that might change in JLA also.”
