    Always wanted to be a part of these panels. Would love to also see more of these as podcasts so I can listen to them.

    Am I really the only one who cries inside every time DiDio streses that Blackest Night will not be a GL story?

    DiDio took the opportunity to mention that Baltazar and Aureliani would be taking on the writing duties for another of DC’s kid-friendly titles, “Billy Batson and the Magic of Shazam,” since writer/artist Mike Kunkel has fallen behind and DC is committed to putting the book out on time.
    Ah rats. I loved this book.

    I wish everyone could attend these panels. I had the chance to go to the DC Universe and Sunday Conversation panels at Mega Con last month, and they're far more personable than I think anyone who hasn't been to one realizes. Especially in regards to DiDio.

    The DC Universe panel was a bit more professional while it was going on, but when it ended I went right up and met with a ton of the talent, all of whom chatted and posed for pictures when asked. For the Sunday panel, it was Dan flying solo at Mega Con. He was on the floor the whole time with the rest of us, really engaging the audience, and once the panel wrapped, he hung around and talked with a handful of us just to chat. It went on for so long, in fact, that another panel was about to start, so we exited the room and continued conversing in the lobby for about fifteen more minutes.

    Anyway, long and short of it, I may not always agree with DiDio and the folks at DC for a lot of their decisions, but the one thing I walked away from those two panels feeling is that these folks really do have a genuine love for what they produce, along with a want to please and intrigue their readership. That may sound like nothing more than common sense, but the rants often complaining that DiDio is ruining one's childhood, or that he's some sort of monster who kills characters only to screw with fans read a lot more absurdly after you've actually met the guy.

    Uh huh. That's always been the impression that I've got from the guy. Might make the odd stuff-up here and there but just the nicest of guys who always has the best intentions for DC and its characters.

    Talking

    Man, I've always wanted to go to one of these. It just sounds like what me and my friends do on late nights when we're driving back from Atlanta or Columbia. Just talk about why we're such freaks for comics and stories/characters that we love. And for as much of the flack that DiDio gets, in conversations like this, he seems like such a cool dude.
