DC Entertainment Arrives in Chicago for C2E2

DC Entertainment Arrives in Chicago for C2E2

By Pamela Mullin Horvath Friday, April 26th, 2013

A few weeks ago, DC Entertainment posted their exciting array of con exclusives, sponsorships, give-aways, panels and activities happening at C2E2 this year.

Well, the weekend is upon us and DC Entertainment has already made a splash in the local press. Chicago resident Brian Azzarello spoke with the CHICAGO TRIBUNE’s RED EYE about C2E2 and the comic books he's writing and tune in to hear him on WBBM radio. Kyle Higgins spoke to the CHICAGO SUN TIMES about setting Nightwing in his former hometown. And TIME OUT CHICAGO includes the DC Comics BATMAN/SUPERMAN 101 panel with local artist Chris Burnham in their list of What to do and see at C2E2.

In addition to the fabulous local press, this week we announced "Trintiy War" tie-in books with IGN, and that the new Green Lantern villain's origin story will be revealed in the form of a series of black & white variant covers across all of the “Green Lantern” family of titles from June through August with MTV GEEK, we also revealed the details of Geoff Johns’ final issue of GREEN LANTERN, and showcased some interior art from issue #1 of the new limited series THE WAKE with interviews with writer Scott Snyder and artist Sean Murphy.

So, if you’re heading to Chicago this weekend have fun, read some comic books, meet some of your favorite writers and artists, and don't miss DCE’s panels at C2E2 listed below for your convenience.
