Panel Report – DC Comics: The New 52!

DC Comics the New 52 Saturday edition happened today and here is a rundown of some very exciting news courtesy of Comic Vine!

“Join us starting at 5:30pm (San Diego time) as moderator John Cunningham and a plethora of panelists sound off about the next big things in the New 52. On the creative side, we’re expecting to hear from Tony Daniel, Kyle Higgins, Geoff Johns, Jeff Lemire, Jimmy Palmiotti, Gail Simone, Charles Soule, James Tynion IV, Robert Venditti, and JH Williams III. From DC Entertainment, we’ve got Eddie Berganza, Brian Cunningham, and Mike Marts rounding out the panel.

5:30 — Things kick off with a video intro to the Trinity War. We meet the Justice League, Justice League of America, and the third, Justice League Dark, and find that they’re all at war. The battle? Orchestrated by powerful supervillains — and the villains win. Trinity War month one starts in July.

5:38 — The key to taking down the Justice League is going after Superman. Things are pretty dicey with Superman’s (apparent) killing of Dr. Light, and it’s only going to get bigger.

5:41 — Forever Evil has the villains running the show. We’ll be surprised by who’s gathering together to lead the charge, fronted by Lex Luthor. FOREVER EVIL: ARKHAM WAR is going to feature a crazy war — Blackgate vs. Arkham — and we’re seeing two other tie-ins with FOREVER EVIL: A.R.G.U.S. and FOREVER EVIL: ROGUES REBELLION.

5:43 — AQUAMAN #24 marks the end of the first two years of the New 52, and the team is really happy with the book (they’re even joking about how it’s cool that people still make fun of Aquaman!). Up next: we’ll find out about Aquaman’s complex ancestry, and the origins of Atlantis.

5:44 — Trinity War is the end of the first era of the New 52, and the launch of the next stage.

5:45 — SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN is happening! The book goes on sale October 9th, with Charles Soule writing and Tony Daniel on art.

5:47 — We get a sneak peek of the cover for GREEN ARROW #24. Jeff Lemire says that he never expected to enjoy writing Green Arrow, but it’s turning into one of his favorite projects. We can look forward to some elements from ARROW in this book (in a unique form that differs a little bit from the show) and also see the title cross over with Zero Year.

5:49 — Jeff Lemire shares a sneak peek at the cover for ANIMAL MAN #24. We can look forward to seeing some personal glimpses into the Baker family, and how they deal with Buddy’s celebrity.

5:51 — Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner are bringing us a new HARLEY QUINN monthly book, starting in November. Fun fact: the “5150” on Harley’s shoulder in the promo image is the police code for an escaped lunatic. It’s Jimmy’s first time writing with Amanda, and we can expect fun and chaos!

5:52 — ALL-STAR WESTERN is approaching its 2-year mark this fall, and Jonah Hex is now stuck in the modern world after Booster Gold dropped him off here. He’s running around with Amadeus Arkham’s great-grandson, escaping Arkham Asylum, and going on crazy adventures.”
