San Diego Comic-Con '09 News Thread
San Diego Comic-Con 2009 starts Thursday, July 23.This is where everything regarding news, exclusives, preview art, etc. will be posted for all publishers.
Tweets regarding new info are also welcome.
We should also keep a tally on which creators get into fights this year, which ones get swine flu, or those who just make a fool out of themselves.
Okay, so I have three days bought and paid for. Only problem is, I have no working printer, neither of my parents have functional computers attached to their printers, and my only option for printing my passes right now seems like Kinko's, though I'd prefer not to dip into my spending money to do so.
My question is thus: do you absolutely HAVE to have your registration information/bar codes printed up for them to scan at Comic-Con, or can they look up your information in their database or something?
"For a few seconds Oskar saw through Eli's eyes. And what he saw was...himself. Only much better, more handsome, stronger than what he thought of himself. Seen with love."

DC Superman Panel
Apparently the Thanagarians show up as New Krypton starts to expand their reach, and the Thanagarians were a conquered planet under Kryptonian rule in the past it seems.
And Superboy Prime shows up in Adventure Comics #4-5.
You left out the best part where the Kryptonians steal a moon from Jupiter for their planet.
A new ongoing JSA book, JSA All Stars, written by Sturges and drawn by Freddie Williams (awesome).
I wanted to jump onto the new JSA run, but I can literally only afford one book. Plus, the thing I liked most about it was the younger heroes interacting with the older heroes.
I'm kind of pissed now.
Marvel to Publish "Something"
Some say it's Miracleman with Moore scripts but different art, others say Ditko, anything short of Marvel buying Superman from the Siegel family (whatever the verdict was on that) isn't going to live up to the hype.
Details to be released at Quesada's panel tomorrow 2:00 pm PST
But, yeah, I can't think of any comic news at all, any possible permutation of creators and properties that could create enough uproar to live up to that kind of hype.
This is probably the answer to the "How do you create the future" ad in some recent comics.
Pretty sure those "How do you create the future" ads are for the Brubaker/Epting Marvels Project 8 issue mini coming out next month.
And I'm sorry, but nothing in the comics industry, nothing at all, would be powerful enough to "break the internet." Unless Marvel is bringing Michael Jackson back from the dead, turning him black again, and releasing a Thriller quality video, most of the world won't even notice.
They're actually publishing human beings.
With super powers.
Also, am I the only one who's kind of pissed by the JSA split?
Maybe Bale and Munch stuck around...
Funny you should say that, because I actually didn't bother.
But still, it's frustrating. The element of the team I love is just completely dissolved. So now we have what's pretty much Infinity, Inc. 3.0 and the normal JSA, which will be down to like 5 or 6 guys after this (and the solicits hint that one of them is probably dying before the groups split).
Looks like it. I predicted they'd do this way back when there was going to be two Justice League ongoings, so I'm not terribly surprised. There's just way too many members on the team to give each character the face time they deserve, so splitting it up is a good thing.
Also, I found this pretty funny:
Now that Willingham is writing JSA I keep thinking Cyclone's pet monkey is actually Bufkin.
I don't read JSA so I don't care, but I do find it funny that the only way to differentiate between teams in the DC Universe, apparently, is to make one a normal team and the other EXTREME PROACTIVE JUSTICE.
It's like the same storyline in JLA and JSA!
I did, and by the end wished I hadn't. I'm dropping the book in light of the crappy preview for Willingham and Sturges' first issue though. I learned my lesson with Shadowpact.
That's neat, but I wonder how they're going to collect this stuff.
Comedy answer: DC puts out trades? Oh you mean those things that don't come out for at least 2years?
(is still bitter about the crazy delays in the Sinestro Corps War trades)
I guess that's one way to get JH Williams to be a monthly artist.
And a sidenote, Newsarama is getting beat by CBR in the SDCC coverage pretty well these past two days.
Big stories come out in expensive hardcovers 3-4 months after they finish as floppies, then come out in trade (and I've been measuring this) an average of 10-11 months later.
Yes, it it quite shitty.
Honestly, what the fuck people.
...my internet still works.
It wouldnt hurt so much if it wasnt such a big backstep after the development of the hulk books that we had with the planet hulk books. It seems we will have another Rulk beats the marvel universe series all over again.
Buckley is a businessman, surely he could have worded his response a bit better than "You're not going to get any more content for the price increase." Especially when McCann said the opposite a few seconds prior.
And the Marvelman stuff, I guess it's more of a UK thing?
Also, it was hinted Loeb is doing something in the X-verse within the year.
