Wizard World Chicago '07: day 2

Saturday at Chicago:

Saturday Aug. 11:
The Dave Cockrum Room
The DC Universe survived 52, but will it survive Countdown? Dan DiDio, Senior VP—Executive Editor DCU and Bob Wayne, VP—Sales are joined by Tony Daniel (Teen Titans, Flash), Patrick Gleason (Green Lantern Corps), Sean McKeever (Countdown, Teen Titans ), Will Pfeifer (Catwoman), J. Torres (Teen Titans Go!), Ethan Van Sciver (Green Lantern) and others for a peek into what’s upcoming in comics’ greatest universe!

Interestingly, CBR has an image from the Legion's new penciller (the cover to issue 38 - click to enlarge it), but it's not credited there and there's nothing in the article about it.

News from Newsarama:

  • "We have a new writer coming up, but we can't say who that is."
  • Will DC bring the real Legion back? Didio: "Talk to me next year for the Legion's 50th anniversary.

Wizard Universe:
  • Shortly after artist Francis Manapul steps onto "Supergirl and the Legion of Super-Heroes", he will be joined by a new writer, whose identity remains unknown at present."

The Wizard School Room
Writer/artist Dennis Calero (JSA Classified, Legion of Super-Heroes) shows you how the creative process in the comic industry has expanded from pen and ink to a wide range of tools available through the computer. Learn valuable techniques on improving or fully creating your art with programs like Photoshop and more!

Nothing on this one yet.

Michael. Did you miss the article further down on Newsarama? They didn't talk with Manapul at the con but did have an interview with him about his new job on the Legion.

No, I did read it (and the one on Wizard), I just wrote it up but forgot to post it. D'oh!
