Sam Loeb and (a bunch of) The 26. A quick report from the frontlines -- of awesome!
Slid into Wizard World L.A. today to sit in on the panel for the upcoming comic by Sam Loeb and The 26 (reported on here earlier, don't ask me to link, I frighten easily.) On the panel, the very kings of comics: Jeph Loeb, Michael Turner, Tim Sale, Geoff Johns, Jim Lee, Pat Lee, Alan Heinberg, Rob Liefeld, splendiferous me, and more guys whom I either didn't know or were too far away to see. It's the most comics greatness to assemble in one room since Alan Moore sat very quietly by himself. Ironic, then, that the room should be so small and unpopulated. It was like the Avengers announcing their new line up -- to the Defenders. Really. I think we could have taken the audience in a tug-of-war. But the feeling was good, and the book looks great. Fun how all those different artists capture different ways of looking at Batty Jr and Li'l Supes, but what surprised even me was how the writers, without ever conferring or even knowing each other's parts, all seemed to find the same voice. Then I realized: It's Sam's voice. So no wonder.
Anyway, thanks to those who came. The book comes out in April.
(That thing I said about Moore --- didn't someone say that about Thomas Jefferson once? Oh well. If I don't mention it no one will notice.)
Oh, and I turned in a script for something. I can't remember what.
