SDCC ’11 | Is Brian K. Vaughan announcing a new project?

Brian K. Vaughan

Writer Brian K. Vaughan has been added to an Image Comics panel at Comic-Con International in San Diego, igniting speculation that the acclaimed co-creator of Y: The Last Man and Ex Machina will announce a new title.

The news came Monday from Image Publisher Eric Stephenson, who revealed on his personal blog that Vaughan will be among the special guests on the “Creator-Owned Comics With Robert Kirkman” panel, scheduled for 3 p.m. Saturday. “You’ll want to go to this panel,” Stephenson wrote. “Why? Well, we’ve roped Brian K. Vaughan into attending, along with some other great guests, so … yeah. Be there.”

It’s been nearly a year since the conclusion of Ex Machina at WildStorm, and more than three years since Y: The Last Man wrapped up its 60-issue run at Vertigo. Since then, there have been few clues as to what the Eisner Award-winning writer had planned next — a return to creator-owned comics or a continued focus on film and television projects. But this news certainly suggests we’ll be seeing a new book from Vaughan in the near future. As Ryan K. Lindsay writes, “Why else would BKV be there except to announce something new?”

Read the panel description after the break, and follow Robot 6 and Comic Book Resources for any developments on Saturday.

Image would be a natural place for BKV to land. And he really has been AWOL for far too long.

And it would be nice for there to be some real news from SDCC this year.

or maybe will it be about the new Vertigo ongoing, in the up-coming anthology THE UNEXPECTED..?

Just take my money!

Great journalism from the Weekly Crisis, once again ;)

Seriously, though, I am so extremely excited about this possibility. Best news of the con already decided!

New Brian K. Vaughan comics?!? Yay!!! One of my favorite creators!

Hopefully it is more than just an arc on Kirkmans new book (ala his Buffy arc).

I want a new masterpiece from him! haha… thats not asking to much is it? ;)

New BKV?

SOLD.
