Announcements included a Scooby Doo Meets Batman and Robin digital comic and... well, that was about it.
DC held their DC Digital panel at San Diego Comic Con today, prompting CBR and Newsarama to use the word Batman a combined 34 times in their summary articles. Amongst the announcements at the panel were a new digital crossover series titled Scooby Doo Meets Batman and Robin from Sholly Fisch, who is awesome.
DC also teased Pia Guerra of Y: The Last Man fame drawing a story for Adventures of Superman. The rest of their digital comics (Batman: Lil' Gotham, Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight, Injustice: Gods Among Us Featuring Batman, Batman '66, Batman: Smallville, Batman Beyond, and Justice League Beyond Batman)... will continue to be published, and feature stories that don't really matter in the grand scheme of things.
DC doesn't like to announce too much at conventions, prefering to do that on their own terms and just talk about the things everyone already knows at their panels. All in all, pretty lackluster compared to Image's bombshell from a few weeks ago about releasing DRM-free digital comics, and Marvel's digital panel was more of the same. If only a real reporter at one of these panels had the balls to ask about that (hint hint The Beat).
If you want to experience what the panel would be like if it were a Power Point slideshow, DC was kind enough to create one on their website, which is embeddable. Enjoy:
