San Diego Comic-Con is now behind us, and DC Comics certainly had a successful show. No matter where you looked in the convention center and beyond, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, the Flash and hundreds of other heroes and villains from the DC Universe were proudly on display. From morning to night, you could find them on comic covers, in movie and TV stills, in videogames, on toys, collectibles and clothing, and wandering around the aisles of the show floor and the streets of the Gaslamp District from morning to night.
Batman’s quest to keep the streets of Gotham safe may be never ending, but he still had time to stop by to chat with us in the latest episode of DC All Access.
As the holidays arrive and the year comes to a close, we thought we’d take a look back at 2013 and commemorate some of the moments that really stood out in the world of DC Entertainment in a two-week DCComics.com series we’re calling “Ten Moments that Mattered.” Some of these moments were happy. Some were sad. They played out in the pages of our comics, on the big and small screen and in the halls of our office. However, all of them made a profound difference in the world of DC Comics and in the hearts and minds of our fans.
