Well the big news that came out from Yesterday's Comic-Con was two big announcements from Neil Gaiman. He announced a multiple book deal with HarperCollins and what really got comic fans excited was that he also announced a new Sandman mini-series with DC! Gaiman has stated at other times that he would love to return to Sandman if DC would pony up the appropriate amount of cash so it would seem that something transpired to get Gaiman back in the comic writing saddle again. The buzz around this could easily make it the big news of the con, but we still have a few days yet.
Some of the other news that caught my attention were Mark Waid and Matt Wagner announcement of joining Legendary Comics. They also announced that Simon Bisley, Shane Davis, and Max Brooks were coming on as well. This felt a bit like when BOOM! nabbed Waid and a few others to beef up their line of comics and should be a great move for Legendary, who although haven't published much in the comic book world, seem poised to move on some comic book properties.
Some of the movie related news that I liked hearing about are the Fantastic Four and Daredevil reboots. There are undoubtedly many superhero films that could use a reboot, but these two definitely needed it. They all had some pretty great things about them (yes even Daredevil), but the package overall was less than stellar. I feel Marvel has put out some great movie flicks these past few years and I hope the trend continues. Another movie item that sent fans crazy was the Lone Ranger trailer showcasing Johnny Depp as Tonto and Armie Hammer as the man with the white hat.
Keep tuning back for more of the best from Comic-Con 2012.
