James Robinson, Brian Wood announcements highlight FanExpo Canada
Robot 6 has a good writeup on the goings-on this past weekend at FanExpo Canada, including the totally appropriate-for-the-venue announcement that Marvel’s Canadian superteam Alpha Flight would graduate to an ongoing series.
The two things I was most excited about involve two of my favorite writers: James Robinson and Brian Wood.
Robinson (“Starman”) will be relaunching the Justice Society of America in a new series from DC Comics set on Earth-2, thus keeping the characters free of “The New 52″ continuity in which superheroes have only been around for about 5 years.
“One of the problems with the Justice Society pre-[New] 52 is that so many of them were dead,” Robinson said at CBR. “There were very, very few of them alive, but you’re going to see some people that haven’t been around for a while fighting crime and being a part of the team again, so just bear with us.”
Wood (“DMZ”) will return to Marvel, where the teaser image released seems to indicate he’ll be doing something Wolverine-related. He’s not signed an exclusive with Marvel, as he writes at his tumblr site.
“I’m freelancing for them as I still am with DC and with Dark Horse, and probably others,” he writes. “There will be more Marvel news to share at some point soon… I have to connect with my editors once they are back from Fan Expo. Thanks for all the kind words and encouragement.”
