For a small convention, there is plenty of news coming from DC Comics. Take the jump for the rundown.

  • Scott Kolins has signed an exclusive deal with DC.
  • Chuck Dixon will return to Robin in 2008, following the Ra’s Al Ghul storyline.
  • In regards to Countdown:
    • There are no current stories running that are taking place on alternate Earths.
    • Titans Tomorrow features Titans from New Earth and nowhere else.
  • Readers will get to see Earth-2 JSA
  • Daniel Acuna will be replace as the artist on the Flash, although the new artist has not been announced.
  • Jim Shooter is officially back on Legion of Super-Heroes.
  • Checkmate has been scripted to issue #25, but DiDio would not promise it and Shadowpact would not be cancelled.
  • Manhunter will return.

  • Firestorm will return to Justice League of America.
  • Peter Tomasi will write Nightwing after Marv Wolfman concludes his run.
