Batman News heads to Comic-Con!

Can’t attend Comic-Con, but have a question you want to ask the talent? Want to see pictures and video from a particular panel? Maybe you’re going to the Comic-Con already and just want somebody to hang out with! I am open to suggestions and you can contact me on Twitter: @AndrewBatReview. I’ll be tweeting quite a bit over the course of my trip which starts in LA tomorrow night before moving to San Diego on Friday for the convention. Here’s a link to all of the events going on at Comic-Con and below you’ll find my schedule, which is pretty open since I’ve only been booking Batman-related activities.


I likely won’t make it to the convention center at all this day, which is a shame because I had to back out of interviews with guys like John Layman, Derek Fridolfs, and Dustin Nguyen.


To start things off, I’m scheduled to play Batman: Arkham Origins, Arkham Origins: Blackgate, and Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure from 10-11AM.

From noon until 5PM I’m interviewing the following writers at the DC Comics booth:

  • Kyle Higgins (Nightwing, Batman Beyond)
  • Christos N. Gage (Legends of the Dark Knight “Dreaming he is a Butterfly”, Justice League Beyond
  • Chris Burnham (Batman, Inc.)
  • James Tynion IV (Talon, Red Hood and the Outlaws, Batman)
  • Matt Kindt (Justice League of America, Suicide Squad)

Later there is a Scott Snyder panel, a New 52 panel, and a Justice League: Flashpoint Paradox screening. All of these take place at around the same time so I’m not sure which I’ll shoot for. Friday will be my busiest day and my accommodations for that night are iffy so things could get interesting later that night.


This will be a fun day because as of right now I don’t have anything set in stone. Things I’m interested in checking out are the Behind the Scenes of Telltale Games panel (The Walking Dead games that they made were incredible. Right up there with Heavy Rain), The Superman 75th Anniversary panel with Grant Morrison, the creators of Superman: The Animated Series, talent from Man of Steel, and more, the Batman: The Animated Series Turns 21 panel, and the Batman: Zero Year panel. I actually got invited to the Thor and Captain America press conferences, but since it wasn’t Batman-related I didn’t figure I had any place to put such an article around these parts. Same goes for all the TV shows (Hannibal was very persistent) and other movies (Evil Dead re-make was one I can remember off the top of my head). If it turns out that I could have talked to Scarlett Johansson though… I’ve made a huge mistake.


It’s the final day of Comic-Con and I’ll be spending quite a bit of my time talking to the folks behind Cartoon Network’s Beware the Batman.

As you can see I definitely left things pretty open and since I’ve never gone to the San Diego Comic-Con before, I’ll probably be pretty overwhelmed walking in. In fact, I’m sure of it. I haven’t even had time to look at the full list of events. This is going to be ridiculous.
