There is so much news coming out of the San Diego Comic Con, and we’re trying to keep up as fast as we can. Here’s a summary of three DC Comics panels that talk up The Justice League, Multiversity, Superman, Wonder Woman, Red Lanterns, and just about every other DC Comic you can think of!
Our own Jason Inman was at the Multiversity panel and got his hands on one of Grant Morrison’s Multiversity Maps. He told us that the posters will go on sale soon.
- One of the issues of multiverse had Connor Hawke’s daughter acting like Miley Cyrus.
- (Morrison’s) Thunder World issue is his ultimate Captain Marvel story.
- Grant put thought into the placement of every world on the map and earth 33 is where we are located.
The 33rd Earth? That brings in a whole lot of conspiracy and Masonic themes, doesn’t it?
- Batman sends Dick in to work for the organization while working against the organization. But then again, you’ve read the first issue, and know about that already.
Star Spangled War Stories Featuring G.I. Zombie
- It’s about a zombie, who protects the United States.
- Looks like there will be a lot of violence in this book.
- An image of G.I. Zombie riding a missile appeared during the panel… Dr. Strangelove references were made
- Bob Wayne urged retailers to order extra on this book since each issue has gone to print multiple times.
- Also, Bob Wayne, DC Seniro Vice President of Sales announced he will not be moving to Burbank, and thus will be leaving the company.
- Did you read our review of Harley Quinn Invades Comic-Con? According to Jimmy Palmiotti, the issue was based on things that really happened… mostly.
- Harley Quinn may or may not be teaming up with Power Girl.
- Niles Caulder is indeed a bigger bastard than Lex Luthor
- Doom Patrol consists of wounded people, who Caulder further wounds
- Shazam isn’t too fond of the Justice League HQ and brings a little “magic” to the joint.
- Jimmy goes through “changes”
- Ulysses will be a new character introduced into the series. He’s a baby that was sent from Earth to another dimension and has returned… Spooky?
- There’s a new creative team! Wonder Woman #36 will feature the husband-and-wife creative team of David and Meredith Finch.
CHECK OUT THESE PAGES! OMG!
- The issue arrives in November
- Wally West will need to move really fast, really soon. I take it that means he will become the speedster we all want him to be.
- Interestingly, elements that were created specifically for the upcoming television series were already introduced into the comic book. SYNERGY!
- Hal is no longer a hotshot. No, really… okay, you can laugh now.
- Meanwhile, John thinks he should be the leader of the Green Lanterns, and not that hotshot Hal Jordan
- Also… Guy Gardner and Atrocitous are going to battle it out… One. More. Time!
- In the changes to the character, Swamp Thing has only been in his new “job” for a couple of months.
- Swamp Thing creates a smaller version of himself to keep him updated on what is going on in the real world. Sounds kind of weird and gross to me.
- The next story arc will introduce the Machine Kingdom. OH YEAH! STEAMPUNK SWAMP THING!
That’s what we know so far. Hope it isn’t too cryptic, but then again, many of these panels simply tease use with “facts” with little explanation.
Oh, and for those of you who are dying for a higher resolution image of that Multiversity poster, here you go.
