During San Diego Comic Con, MTV GEEK sat down with DC Entertainment’s Co-Publishers Jim Lee and Dan DiDio to discuss DC Comics-The New 52. “What we really wanted to do is shake up the business,” said DiDio. “What we’re doing is launching 52 new titles and not only that, but it’s a brand new take, a brand new view and brand new ideal behind our characters. What we’re hoping to do is energize our fanbase, our existing fans and bring in new fans.”
San Diego Comic-Con has come and gone but everyone is still buzzing from all of the teases about and sneak peeks of DC Comics-The New 52. There was a ton of coverage out there but we thought we’d highlight some of the most interesting coverage.
The talented writer/artist Jill Thompson (Deliruim's Party: A Little Endless Story Book, Sandman) took to the stage in the DC Entertainment Booth on the last day of the San Diego Comic-Convention and awed the crowd with her rendition of Wonder Woman. In a step by step process the crowd intensely watched as Jill transformed a blank piece of paper into the gorgeous image below, which she graciously signed and gave to a fan that had the closest birth date to hers.
