Reporting from San Diego Comic Con! (not live...uh, but not dead.)

So, every year we get the news from SDCC! It's always very exciting for fans of the pop-culture. This year is no exception. First off we have...Flash: Rebirth by Geoff Johns and Ethan Van Sciver. A mini-series re-introducing the once dead Barry Allen, similarly to 2005's Green Lantern rebirth, also done by this creative team.

Kevin Smith will be returning to DC, writing a Batman mini-series titled Batman: Cacophony, starring one of my favorite underused villains from Smith's Green Arrow run, Onomatopoeia!

At Marvel, we will finally see an ongoing featuring the Golden Age team, Agents of Atlas, Written by none other than Jeff Parker.

Also in December we'll see Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon returning to Punisher with Punisher: War Zone, a weekly 6-issue miniseries, under the Marvel Knights line. Also replacing the Iron Man: Director of SHIELD title, a War Machine ongoing written by Greg Pak! YAY!

A few other things to note: A series titled Adam Legend of the Blue Marvel about a black superhero in the ‘60s that wore a costume that concealed the color of his skin. Six issues, starting in November. Sounds interesting. Last but definitely not least, Johns will be in on the Superman books until at least 2010!!!

And that's all for now, but that is only day one at the San Diego Comic Con!

Is it just me, or does the picture representative of the Punisher above look strangely like Christopher Walken? Perhaps he has taken Frank Castle's place in the new series?
