We'll start in 10 minutes or so.
1:45PM: John Cunningham comes up once again to talk about the We Can Be Heroes campaign. Geoff Johns comes out first. Jim Lee comes out now. James Robinson and Nicola Scott walk out. Tony Bedard comes out. Francis Manapul and Brian Buchelloto comes out, and then Brian Cunningham. Justice League 12 and the cover is on the screen. The end of this arc is the end of the first year as the Justice League. Some members have quit and Johns says the second year is about how should be on the team. Jim says he forgot to draw Aquaman's gloves on the cover, everyone laughs after Geoff says "the gloves are off."
1:55: Issue 0 cover of JL on the screen. Shazam is on the cover and Johns says he'll join the team next year. Tony Daniel comes on for a two part story that reintroduces the Cheetah. JLI cover on the screen. Johns says it's a Booster Gold story that Dan Didio wanted to tell, and it is the last issue of the book. Green Lantern 0 on the screen. The character has a gun because it's his "backup," states Johns. The zero issue will let everyone know who he is. Van Sciver will be drawing the annual, and "the Guardians are total dicks" says Johns. Rise of the Third Army. The Manhunters were the first army. The Lanterns were the second. The Guardians create a new army, says Johns, and the problem is free will. The Guardian wants to destroy free will.
2:00: Jeff Lemire, JL Dark writer shows up. GL Corps 0 cover on the screen. Johns says it sets up the fall of Guy Gardner. He then says he shouldn't have said that. GL New Guardians 0 on the screen. Tony says by issue 12 we'll find out why the rings came to Kyle. In issue 0, you'll see more first string characters. Kyle has shown he can access the other rings, and this issue is part of a quest to master all those. We then see the cover to 13, nothing incredibly special.
2:10: Red Lanterns 0 cover. Looks pretty cool. Johns says we'll see more of Atrocitus' beginnings. It factors into Third Army heavily. The Third Army leads to something bigger. Brian talks about Flash 0. Francis says they'll go over him growing up. Brian says they'll get deeper into Barry's psyche. Updates every 10 minutes now. The internet here is now terrible. Earth-Two 0 cover on the screen. James says it takes place before issue one. It's an adventure of the trinity, but it's more than the trinity. It's actually eight wonders. There's Mr Eight who fought with them, and he eventually became the villain. Cover for October's issue. Alan Scott and Grundy fighting. It's going to be a 6-issue story, instead of 5. The cover we see is when we see Alan Scott start to use his powers. Issue 5 will be the first appearances of Wesley Dodds, and he's Canadian... Thank you! Nicola has lost her voice. She says they don't need to tie-in to anything. She says the Grundy fight issue (5, I believe) is the best one yet.
2:15: Nicola did all the redesign work, according to Jim Lee. He tweaked it here and there, but it's mainly her work. JL Dark 0 cover on the screen. Jeff Lemire says the dark books are pretty disconnected from the rest of the mainstream universe. This issue boils the issue down. It focuses on Constantine. A younger, more arrogant Constantine. Jeff says there will be new members: Frankenstine, Timothy Hunter, and Aemesthyst. We're seeing come great looking covers now.
2:20: Questions: Are we going to see other JSA members in Earth Two? John says yes. He wants to roll them out slowly, but you all know that if you listened to John on the podcast last month. Missed a bunch of questions because of the terrible wifi. One person asks if there will be a Batman: Earth One volume 2 book. Geoff says he and Gary Frank are working on it now.
2:25: Geoff Johns and Jeff Lemire will be working on a Justice League story together. What aren't they happy with with the new 52? Jim says they don't really discuss what they're not happy with, but they do have guidelines to follow. They don't focus on negatives, but they continue to work.
2:35: The internet is fighting me like Ishmael against Moby Dick. It's a constant struggle. Sorry guys. IS anything from Flashpoint coming back? Johns says they're no plans right now. When will Martian Manhunter be in JL? Johns says next year. Will Barry be a Blue Lantern again? No. Will Blue Beetle be on Teen Titans? No, but there is something big happening to him in the near future. JLI Annual for Blue Beetle stuff.
2:45: Lots of "where's this character" questions. Lots of "we don't know" answers. Where's Plastic Man? No answer. Where's Wally West? Brian says "he's somewhere." Man, these questions are insanely repetitive. Very few people ask real questions.
Bye bye guys!
