There was a lot of news stemming from WonderCon '07 on DC's front. Some of it's good, some of it's bad, and most of it is certainly interesting. From Dan DiDio himself, comes the news...

-Judd Winick announced that Green Arrow's series will be cancelled. The final issue will be #75 and will end with Ollie proposing to Black Canary. Somehow, this will lead into Green Arrow: Year One.
-Also coming out this year will be Teen Titans: Year One, Metamorpho: Year One, and Black Lightning: Year One.
-Regarding the Countdown teaser image, DiDio took back the comment that the Flash on the image was Barry Allen. But in a classic case of teasing the fans, DiDio didn't necessarily say he WOULDN'T appear in the series.
-Instead of letting it die, Frank Miller's All-Star Batman & Robin, the Boy Wonder is done and set for release. If only they had let it die...
-Supergirl (currently with the Legion of Super Heroes) will eventually return to the present.
-Chloe Sullivan will go from Smallville to the pages of Superman starting in 2008.
-Manhunter, staving off cancellation once again, will begin again in July.
-DiDio revealed that Terry McGinnis (!) might appear in the DCU in the future.
-Alex Ross will take a well-deserved break following the final issue of Justice.
-Look for Batgirl to grace the pages of many more comics in the near future.

The link is here at Comics Continuum

This is all good stuff, with the glaring exception of Miller's horrendous All-Star Batman still seeing the light of day. I love the fact that Chloe Sullivan and Terry "Batman Beyond" McGinnis might see their day on the printed page, as it makes their respective television shows seem much less throwaway than they originally were. One thing you can say about Dan DiDio is that he knows how to get the comic geeks talking, as this will sure get the Barry Allen speculation going. Although, personally, I'm still waiting to see what became of Wally West.

You know, the whole point of having legacy characters is that you can have your cake and eat it too with regards to character deaths. You can kill a legendary character, have it be meaningful and permanant, and still keep using the superhero with another guy under the mask. If they're going to just keep bringing back guys (especially guys whose deaths were as big a deal as Barry Allen's), I don't even see the point of using legacy characters anymore.

Given that Barry is a time traveller, I don't know why he can't just stay dead and then occasionally bring him back as his earlier self zipping through time. A cheat, but not a horrible one.

(It worked for Professor Zoom after all in the great Waid series.)

Some more news comes out of WonderCon. Bruce Timm has been hard at work on the animated adaptation of DC: The New Frontier. But it looks like Superman/Doomsday (an adaptation of "The Death of Superman") is also in the works and will be poised for a September 18 release. The voice cast will feature Adam Baldwin as Superman, Anne Heche as Lois Lane, and James Marsters (!) as Lex Luthor.

A seemingly minor, but significant, note is that the movie will be rated PG-13, meaning this movie will definitely bring the action and the violence.

They seemed to make a big deal out of the blood in one panel recap I read over the weekend.

When I lived in Tampa, he seemed to be at every single fandom convention that was held there. He was always super nice and would happily draw you something without even charging, unlike most artists today.
