I’m up in Toronto, Canada, covering Fan Expo Canada all weekend. Earlier today DC held their “All-access panel” for the day featuring Jeff Lemire, Francis Manapul, Yanick Paquette, and others. The crew did not reveal too much about the future of their books, but the “Animal Man” and “Swamp Thing” teases were enough for me. More below.
First on the panel was Paquette and Lemire talking about Rotworld. Not much was revealed about “Swamp Thing” but the new covers showed some major players including Deadman and Poison Ivy. Lemire revealed that “Animal Man” #13-17 would include major DC players including Hawkman. Both Swampy and Buddy Baker are heading to Gotham for Rot World.
Lemire also told that Amethyst and Frankenstein will officially join the Justice League Dark Team
Hopefully tomorrow’s DC Panel will offer some more news and insight.
