It’s that time again folks! No, we don’t mean that it’s time to sit directly in from of the A/C because it’s summer and just way too dang hot to wear pants (although, this is pretty true as well). We mean that it’s San Diego Comic-Con time! A wondrous time where nerds from all areas of pop culture—from movies and television to videos and of course comic books—unite to celebrate and share the love that comes with being a fan.
Over the past two days, we’ve discussed a few ways you can stay on top of all of the breaking DC Comics news and special features to come out of San Diego Comic-Con from the comfort of your home. But what if you’re going to the show? After all, with over two dozen DC Comics panels alone—to say nothing of the non-stop creator signings and cool stuff taking place in our booth (#1915)—it’s easy to feel overwhelmed.
If you’re already familiar with our Con Away From Con convention coverage, you know that our exclusive videos featuring DC Comics talent and fans are always a big part of it. Some of these are official announcements—such as Neil Gaiman’s announcement last year that he’d be returning to the world of Sandman for a brand new miniseries. However, many more of these are exclusive “5.2 Question” interviews, “DC University” videos or Con Away From Con moments that you won’t see anywhere else.
San Diego Comic-Con kicks off this week, and from the opening of the Preview Night showroom on Wednesday to the final announcement on Sunday evening, DCComics.com will be helping you stay on top of all the exciting DC Comics news through our Con Away From Con coverage. However, this year we’re giving you more opportunities to participate from home than ever before. Provided you’re on Twitter, that is.
Welcome to DC Entertainment's official San Diego Comic-Con 2013 Con Away From Con page! Throughout Comic-Con, this page will be your home for breaking news from DC Comics and Vertigo, exclusive videos, panel coverage and more.
For everyone who couldn’t attend the show or didn’t enter online we’re offering you another chance to win the ultimate Comic-Con swag prizes pack from DC Entertainment. Even better, this time we’ve super-sized it!
Fans who attended the SUPERMAN panel at San Diego Comic-Con were given a special treat: a sneak peek at SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE, VOL. 2. Hitting stores on October 31, SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE, VOL. 2 is the highly anticipated sequel to the #1 New York Times best-selling graphic novel SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE by acclaimed writer J. Michael Straczynski and superstar artist Shane Davis.
But if you're not in San Diego this weekend, don't worry! Below, take a look at the art shown at the panel.
