Day 1 of New York Comic-Con is usually a light news day, as the panels are much more industry focused than on salacious comic story news, but there shall be tidbits of some sort! We'll try to aggregate them here for ya. So let's see what's shakin' so far!


From DC Themselves:

– Scott Snyder and Jim Lee are going to be teaming up on a Superman title. Here are some quotes!

"I've loved Superman since I was a kid, and to be working on him now, with the great Jim Lee, is simply too thrilling for words. It's a dream come true for me on every front,” Snyder said. “I don't want to give too much away, so I'll just say it's the Superman story I'd write if I only ever got one chance to write the character. It's an exploration of everything I love and am fascinated by about him. Like Court of Owls for Batman, it's a character piece for Clark – it's going to challenge him to his core. And it's definitely epic in scope, with huge action and drama – the biggest and most earth shaking action I've ever done. Can't wait to see what you all think of it. Couldn't be more grateful or excited to get the chance to make this one!"

“As a huge fan of Scott's writing, I'm looking forward to drawing Superman as much as I am reading Scott’s story as it unfolds,” Lee said. “Scott's crafted a truly epic yet personal story which will demonstrate without a doubt why Superman remains the most iconic hero of the modern age. 2013 is gonna absolutely rock!”


From Bleeding Cool:

Batman #13 and Batgirl #13, tied into the return of the Joker, both sold out by 3pm yesterday, apparently.

Action Comics 15-17 will finally define the history of Superman, what happened and what didn't.


From Comic Book Resources:

– At the Superman panel, artist Bryan Hitch confirmed that there is a Man of Steel comic adaptation of the movie coming from Batman writer Scott Snyder, but he wasn't able to be involved.

Batman and Robin, Green Lantern Corps, Superboy and Green Lantern: New Guardians will all get annuals.


We'll be updating this stuff as news comes in today, so stay tuned!
