Wow. The Dark Horse Comics panel was today, and we got it on video–including special guests like Gerard Way and Eric Powell! The clips will be up shortly, but here are a few highlights to whet your appetite:

  • Gerard Way, Becky Cloonan, and Shaun Simon are working together on a brand-new title: Killjoys
  • The name of the third The Umbrella Academy series was revealed: Hotel Oblivion, and Gerard mysteriously said he was going to try to have as little of The Umbrella Academy in it as possible
  • Dark Horse will be doing the comics tie-in for Joss Whedon’s red-hot horror film, Cabin in the Woods
  • Janet Evanovich is coming to comics! The extraordinarily popular writer will be creating a new story for her character Alexandra Barnaby with the graphic novel Janet Evanovich Barnaby Adventure
  • Star Wars: Empire, Legacy, and Clone Wars are coming to iTunes!
  • Major license alert: Dave Marshall will be editing a prequel to Mass Effect, the hugely popular video game
  • Metalocalypse is getting its own monthly comic, guided by Brendon Small the creator of the show
  • DH is publishing One Shot Wonders this fall: cool stand-alone comics, including Sugarshock, Buffy, Dr. Horrible, Hellboy, Conan, Abe Sapien, two Star Wars comics, and The Goon.
  • CLAMP continues, with new titles added to these manga omnibuses: Cardcaptor Sakura, Chobitz, and Magic Night of Rayearth

There is so much more–we’re processing video as quickly as our inadequate hotel Wifi will allow!
