c2e2 – DC Universe Panel

Here we are on the second day with our first panel DC
Universe. There was a bunch of DC all-stars assembled ranging from Scott
Snyder, Brian Azzarello to Gail Simone. As far as announcements went… there
wasn’t much since Flashpoint is so close and of course DC isn’t going to reveal
anything.

It was revealed that Scott Snyder and Gene Ha are working on the Superman
Flashpoint mini titled Project S and that it will begin with Metropolis having
a very bad day as baby S’s ship brings a ton of Krypton rubble with it. Brian
Azzarello is also working on a title and said it was his first cross-over event
and that usually he doesn’t do them because he hates them, but then went on to
say that this event really will change everything in DC and reaffirmed it with
a very loud “Goddamnit!” He also said that you don’t need to buy all
of the Flashpoint tie-ins but that you’re an idiot if you don’t since it’s
going to be some great stuff. Bob Wayne Sales VP encouraged his statement.

Comics 900 again. Gail was asked to talk about Secret Six and said that the
Huntress Catman date is coming soon and that it will end way worse than anyone
thinks. She said that there was a lot of plans for Bane in the future of the
series but wouldn’t reveal anymore. Batman Inc. artist Yannick Paquette was
announced as DC’s newest exclusive artist and he revealed that he’s already
working on issue 9 of the series. He also said that working on Grant’s scripts
is sometimes confusing. There was some Weird Worlds info that basically the
first tale of the main character will be in the first six issues and then will
move on from there.

For fans of Tiny Titans and the Young Justice comics, nothing could be revealed
about Tiny Titans. For Young Justice they were actually asked to design the
costume for Psycho Pirate which couldn’t be revealed. They said it was fun to
work on the project because there was no continuum to deal with and the take on
the character can be different than the comic.
