ND, Minn. flags to be on comic book cover

FARGO – The North Dakota and Minnesota flags will soon be gracing the cover of a comic book.

On Wednesday, DC Comics is releasing a new comic series called “Justice League of America.” The first issue of that series will have different collectible covers featuring the flag of each U.S. state, as well as Puerto Rico.

Each of the covers is identical except for the flag, with Justice League heroes posed in the flag-raising stance of the iconic “Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima” photo.

Owners of Paradox Comics and Comic Junction in Fargo said that both shops will have issues with the North Dakota cover for sale.

Paradox Comics will also have the issue with the Minnesota flag cover, owner Richard Early said.

Justice League of America will feature heroes such as Green Arrow, Katana, Hawkman, Catwoman and more.
