Get ready anime fans two of the best teams in cartoon history are teaming up! Team RWBY and the Justice League are coming to comic stores next week. This new anime series will run monthly for 7 issues. Rooster Teeth and DC Comics are teaming up and bringing these two fantastic teams together for a limited run. The story will go as follows:
RWBY/Justice League introduces fans of manga and superheroes to the Bruce Wayne, Clark Kent and Diana Prince of Remnant, fighting with Team RWBY. A new Grimm is running rampant across the island of Patch, and Ruby and Yang must team up with a young red and blue-clad farm boy to stop it! Meanwhile, Blake meets a mysterious woman who’s suddenly appeared on Menagerie, but her purpose for being there remains a secret. And why does she act like she hasn’t been around modern society?
Featuring stunning covers and character designs by Mirka Andolfo (RWBY, Harley Quinn, Green Arrow, Wonder Woman) and a card stock variant cover by Simone Di Meo (Future State: Harley Quinn), this unique team up is sure to be a hit with fans of superheroes and manga alike!DC Comics press release
Ruby, Weiss, Blake and Yang make up an eclectic enough team on their own as they hunt Grimm. Now we get to see them team up with Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Green Lantern, Cyborg, Aquaman and Flash, an eclectic team of their own. I can see personalities warming and clashing with each other, but will anyone warm up to Batman? Take a look at the first few pages below:

RWBY and Justice League – Team Up For the Ages
Obviously this series is meant for fun, and it looks to follow through. Team RWBY looks as good as they always do, but I really love the design of the JLA. Each retains trademark features, but they are completely redesigned for the adventures ahead. With only four girls on Team RWBY and seven members of the league, it will be interesting how they pair everyone up. Personality wise there will be plenty of possibilities for both drama and humor. Also, who gets paired with Batman?
