Even though the movie didn't do too well, DC seems to be doing just fine with Justice League. Not only are we getting a brand new Justice League ongoing with Scott Snyder, Jim Cheung, and Jorge Jimenez but DC is also translating the formerly Japanese-exclusive manga for a worldwide release.

Bleeding Cool has confirmed that Batman and The Justice League will come to the West this October. Originally released in Japan to raise interest in the film, fans will now be able to read a new Justice League story from Japanese artist Shiori Teshirogi.

This isn't the first time DC has translated manga based on their heroes. A couple of years ago they brought the famous Bat-Manga to the West, which pleased many fans. Some of the stories there actually influenced Grant Morrison's Batman Inc. so fans were happy to see it get an English translation.

Here is the official solicitation:

Batman & the Justice League Manga Vol. 1

Shiori Teshirogi

23 October 2018 Trade Paperback

$12.99 200 pages

Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and the rest of the Justice League begin a new mission in these manga tales newly translated for an American audience in BATMAN & THE JUSTICE LEAGUE MANGA VOL. 1!

A young boy from Japan travels to Gotham City on a mission. A year before, his two parents—both scientists—were presumably killed in an expolosion that destroyed an experimental power plant. But the boy believes they may still be alive. At the very least, he's determined to find out what actually happened. But his quest soon leads to a run-in with some powerful forces—forces that require help from both Batman and the Justice League!

Mangaka Shiori Teshirogi (SAINT SEIYA: THE LOST CANVAS) creates an exciting new story, bridging an authentic Japanese comics approach with the World's Greatest Superheroes. Translated into English and collected for the Western audience for the first time, BATMAN & THE JUSTICE LEAGUE VOL. 1 is phenomenal entry point for fans of the Justice League and manga alike!
