DC Comics Writers Gather in Burbank for Summit

It may be the artists who DC Comics believe #MoveTheNeedle. Or at least they used to. But then, um, New Age of Heroes… anyway. It seems that DC Comics is taking a leaf out of Marvel Comics' book and running a just-writers summit this weekend — working out where DC Comics is going, what recent changes with Diane Nelson and Geoff Johns leaving mean, and the possibilities that DC Comics may offer in the future.

Or, at least, some of their writers. I understand that certain writers have discovered they have been invited. And others haven't. Nothing like a little division amongst the troops to make them all work harder.
