Boston Comic Con – DC Comics Panel Report

Bostoncc

Boston Comic Con was this past weekend and was held in Boston, MA. Below is a recap of the DC Comics panel that was led by Dan Didio and recapped by Bleeding Cool.

“At the Boston Comic Con, Dan DiDio led the DC Comics panel, a little smaller in size than San Diego a couple of weeks ago.

And Scott Snyder, Tony Daniel, Brian Azzarello, andAaron Lopresti seemed a little less pressured by PR reps. Especially Azzarello who appeared to want to be anywhere else.

Scott Snyder told people that Batman Inc‘s Professor Pyg might appear in future Batman, but definitely stated that Poison Ivy would be in Zero Year. He also, rather spoilery, revealed the true nature of the Red Hood Gang, and its origins, but I’m not going there. He’d had beer.

Tony Daniel told the crowd that Doomsday and Zod would appear in Wonder Woman/Superman.

And Brian Azzarello told Boston that he sees Wonder Woman radically differently to the rest of DC Comics. And her comic is certainly evidence of that. When DiDio asked him how he felt about the whole Wonder Woman/Superman romance in light of the groundwork he was laying with Orion, he responded, “Clearly not the way DC feels about it.”

An apparently flustered Didio added “For those of you who missed the subtext, transcripts of Brian’s comments will be available outside.”

Azzarello shouted down people who tried to ask multiple questions, and he yelled “Do you really think he’s dead?” when someone brought up Damian.

But it was Stephanie Brown’s mention that got people the most agitated, with Dan DiDio responded to questions about her absence saying that they don’t want to rush fan-favourite characters, just because people want to see her, DC wants the character to emerge naturally.

No I didn’t buy it either…”

    Wow, Azzarello sounds kinda cranky. Thats fine, as long as he continues his awesome run on Wonder Woman which in my opinion has been the most consistently solid title in the nu 52 so far & I had never even picked up a solo WW monthly or TPB before. One of the books strengths is even though it’s technically in continuity with the rest of the current DCU it feels like more like it’s doing it’s thing in it’s own world (somewhat like my other faves All-Star Western & Demon Knights). Also glad to hear Prof Pyg’s creepy ass is coming back.
