Seven Newsbites From Emerald City Comic Con

So, while I've been talking to people on Popgun Volume 4, apparently there's been a comic convention going on. So lets have a quick run down of a few of the things that are being announced at Emerald City Comic Con 2010.

1. Amanda Conner, Jimmi Palmiotti and Justin Grey leave Power Girl. Possibly so may quite a few people.

2. Tim Seeley moves Hack/Slash to Image – does he say goodbye to the tens of thousands of dollars he is owed by previous publisher Devil's Due?

3. Darkwing Duck comes out from Boom! in what looks like another translation/repurposing of the vast Italian body of Disney work that has has yet to see publication in the USA. Nope, apparently it's all new stuff.

4. Geoff Johns says no to Marvel/DC crossovers and puts the blame on Marvel's recent incentive for publishers to return stripped covers of DC comics in return for Marvel rare variant comics. I understand that at one point, DC investigated the idea of printing up thousands of spare covers and sending them to Marvel, but legal counsel advised against it.

5. The JSA will return towards the end of the current season of Smallville. But don't ever expect a Green Lantern appearance on the show.

6. Dan Slott is writing a new Spider-Man video game.

7. Michael Broussard will be drawing the first four issues of new Top Series by Ron Marz, Artifacts

I'm not quite sure what, if anything, Marvel announced. Maybe I'll find out later.
