Every year news trickles out ahead of the big conventions and although they still remain quite the spectacle, we find ourselves less and less blown away by the news coming out of them. They still manage to squeeze a few gems in there however and we've put together a list of the biggest news to come out of NYCC:
Here is a border line announcement, as rumors of this title have been floating around now for a month or more. But they actually waited until NYCC to announce and confirm this title and since everything Scott Snyder touches turns to comic book gold lately, it's a pretty big deal for DC.
With the movie in production, most expected Marvel to roll out a Guardians of the Galaxy book, but this relaunch coming from Bendis and McNiven stirred up a bit more excitement for the project
Actually, this is totally NOT a crossover as character from The Unwritten make their way into the Fableverse. It will be set completely within The Unwritten comic, but for two of the better Vertigo books right now to mix it up a bit is good news for fans.
Kirkman's Thief of Thieves title is handled a bit like a tv show in some regards, with Kirkman acting as showrunner and different writers taking turns on each arc. Andy Diggle (The Losers, Swamp Thing) will handle the writing duties for the third arc.
Vertigo will be bringing us a new ten part miniseries from Jeff Lemire (Animal Man, Sweet Tooth), who will be handling story and art in this sci-fi story set both in the far future and in 1921. Not much more is known, but fans are already salivating. Several other interesting projects are on the way from Vertigo as well, be sure to click the link for the article to check out the Vertigo Panel coverage.
By far the biggest news to come out of the con was reserved for Joss Whedon and gang in an announcement for his upcoming S.H.I.E.L.D. television show. Clark Gregg appeared on stage as they announced Agent Coulson will be headlining the show to the roar of the crowd.
