The last day of the San Diego Comic-Con is usually a little more leisurely and (hopefully) a little less crowded than the rest of the convention, but it sounds like this year has seen pretty heavy crowds, so who knows if that held up. While there were fewer panels today than on previous days, today still brought a few tidbits.
At DC’s Brave New World panel, Mike Carlin made several comments about Jeff Smith’s upcoming Captain Marvel limited series, Captain Marvel and the Monster Society of Evil. I guess that answers the question of whether the book is still coming out, despite the upcoming Trials of Shazam! mini-series. Smith’s four-issue series is nearly done, with three issues of the four issues already in the can, and should be ready to ship early next year. It will be more in line with the historical portrayal of the character. The book was first announced in San Diego a few years ago, so it’s fitting that it would be brought up again.
Dan DiDio teased an All-Star Wonder Woman title earlier this week involving Adam Hughes, which Newsarama confirmed today. Hughes will write and draw the title.
At the Mondo Marvel panel, featuring a large panel of Marvel creators, projects like Warren Ellis’s newuniversal and Fantastic Four: The End were previewed. When asked about Joe Quesada naming him as a potential successor to the Marvel editor-in-chief job, Jeph Loeb said, “He drinks a lot…it’s a terrible problem.”
