SDCC ’10 | A roundup of Sunday’s news

Comic-Con International

Comic-Con International

Announcements slowed down on Sunday at Comic-Con International, and apparently so have I. So let’s get to it …

• Marvel announced that Dan Slott will be the sole writer on Amazing Spider-Man, as the “Brand New Day” storyline comes to a close. He’ll work with artists Humberto Ramos, Marcos Martin and Stefano Caselli on the series. The book will ship twice a month.

At that same panel, Marvel announced the creative team on the new Spider-Girl series teased in recently in Previews will be Paul Tobin and Clayton Henry. They also announced a new Carnage miniseries by Zeb Wells and Clayton Crain, as well as an Osborn miniseries by Kelly Sue DeConnick and Emma Rios about Norman Osborn’s time in prison.

• Dark Horse announced three Robert E. Howard-related projects: a new Kull miniseries by David Lapham, a Solomon Kane mini by Bruce Jones and an anthology called Savage Sword.

• And looking back at a couple of items we missed from Friday’s Grant Morrison panel, the writer announced that DC will release an Absolute We3, and he’s also confident that they’ll find a way to release the Flex Mentallo mini-series.

Movies and television

• DC CCO Geoff Johns will write an episode of Smallville featuring Booster Gold and Blue Beetle. He also moderated what is likely Smallville‘s last Comic-Con panel, as they prepare for their 10th and final season. During the panel, they announced John Schneider will return to the show as Pa Kent.

• Marvel unveiled two more movie props today: Captain America’s shield and the Infinity Gauntlet, which will appear in the Thor film.

• Peter David, who wrote the Young Justice comic for DC, will write several episodes of the Young Justice cartoon.

• G4TV will air four Madhouse Studios-produced Marvel anime seriesIron Man, X-Men, Wolverine and Blade — in 2011.

• Marvel announced Saturday night that they’ve regained the film rights to the Punisher.



Dan is, indeed, the man.

I’ll keep reading if he keeps writing.

^Definitely agreed, I am a supporter of the current ASM run, and the fact that Dan Slott will take over and fly solo only sweetens the deal for me. This is definitely my favorite news out of SDCC!

And I was never really interested in the new Spider-Girl series when news first leaked, but writing by the always amusing Paul Tobin and art by the very very talented and yet underrated Clayton Henry? Add the fact that the series is apparently very integral to the Spidey universe/status quo and I am so, SO in.

I’m not sure if I’ve ever read anything by Tobin, but Clayton Henry IS very talented, so I’m most likely on board.

How can they bring Pa Kent back to Smallville?? Wouldn’t he still be State Senator?

Yeah Clayton Henry sold me on the book too.

That guy got real good overnight. Take a look at some of his stuff a few years ago. Clearly the same artist, but very, very rough. Now his stuff is just incredible.


Flashback or dream or Kryptonian technology most likely since he’s dead and what not. And Ma Kent took his seat in Washington.

I thought Arvid Nelson was the writer of Kull. I really liked his mini-series. I am sure David will do a good job.
