So some of the comic related panels I’m seeing:
- The Sandman Universe: Enter the Dreaming
- Surprise DC Comics Panel (possible relaunch?)
- New Voices of Wonder Woman (talking about the YA OGNs like Tempest Tossed, Princess of the Amazons and Nubia: Real One)
- The Expansion of DC’s Watchmen Universe (focused on Tom King’s upcoming Rorschach maxi-series)
- Teen Titans: Spotlight on Kami Garcia and Gabriel Picolo
- John Ridley and The Other History of the DC Universe
- Batman: The Joker War (which has a guest appearance by John Ridley…who was rumored to be writing Batman after the event with Luke Fox as Batman…hmm…)
- Batman: The Three Jokers
- Take a Tour of DC’s Death Metal Metalverse!
- Mostly DCeased
- How I Broke Into Comics (individual videos spotlighting Amanda Conner, Gabrail Picalo, Emmanuel Lupachino, Jamal Campell, Artgerm, Mikal Janin)
- DC Graphic Novel Masterclass – Writers (featuring the aforementioned Sarah Khun and Cecil Castellucci)
- DC Graphic Novel Masterclass – Writers (featuring Klaus Jansen and Isaac Goodheart)
- DC Multiverse: Comic Masterclass (detailing the creation of the Multiverse and how it’s affected DC comics)
And in the KidsVerse and FunVerse there’s going to be comic readers for people to read more than 200 comics for kids and for all-ages going on throughout the day.
And there’s more that I’m probably not explicitly considering comics-focused.
That’s not bad in terms of comic book representation, I think. It’s no different from most other cons in recent years: the movies, TV shows and games might grab most of the headlines, but the comics and the creators in the industry will still have a spotlight.
