BURBANK, Calif. (July 6, 2012) – DC Entertainment celebrates the one-year anniversary of the historic release of THE NEW 52 initiative with the best of the best creators in the business at San Diego Comic-Con International 2012. Between the launch of THE NEW 52 #0 issues and the return of most notorious character in history – The Joker – the controversial and hugely anticipated BEFORE WATCHMEN mini-series comics, celebrity chef’s Anthony Bourdain’s first graphic novel, and the WE CAN BE HEROES giving campaign, with music superstar Chris Daughtry as its ambassador, DC Entertainment’s stellar line up promises to make this year’s Comic-Con one of the biggest in history.

Don’t miss what’s in store at DC Entertainment’s brand new interactive 4,500 square foot booth (#1915) and over 20 panels.


Be there as one of the most notorious villains in history comes out of the dark as The Joker makes his return. Get an inside look at what horrors will befall Gotham from BATMAN writer Scott Snyder. Plus DC Entertainment’s panel Batman: Beyond The Night Of Owls will be a can’t-miss discussion on the most iconic and enduringly popular character in comic history.

One year after the groundbreaking announcement of the NEW 52s, get an inside look at the launch of Zero issues in September.

Join some of the biggest names in comics as they discuss the highly controversial release of BEFORE WATCHMEN on the precipice of fan-favorite character Rorschach’s own series launching in August.

Witness a special surprise announcement during the not-to-be-missed Vertigo panel from one of entertainment’s biggest names.

Find out why celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain hates California rolls as he discusses his first-ever graphic novel GET JIRO!, from DC Entertainment’s Vertigo imprint, with co-writer Joel Rose and artists Langdon Foss and Jose Villarrubia.

Experience comic’s most iconic characters in a whole new way at “Darkness & Light: Art Inspired by Heroes & Villains, Hope & Heroism,” an original art collection at the Michael J Wolf gallery. Benefitting DC Entertainment’s WE CAN BE HEROES giving campaign, the traveling exhibit supports three humanitarian aid organizations fighting the hunger crisis in the Horn of Africa.

This just in, DC will kill the Justice League title and relaunch the book featuring a core group of Vertigo heroes, written and drawn by Rob Liefield.

And DC wonders why they were losing readers-- I just remember last year how everyone was clamoring for a Comic book title being written by a Chef-- maybe next year we will get a series thought aloud by the cast of Jersey Shore-- since I dont think they are literate enough to write something..

I'm surprised Teen Titans hasn't gone down the Jersey Shore route yet.

They can't kill off the book with one of their new gay heroes. Teen Titans is safe as long as that character lives.
