Megacon 2012 – DC Comics and Me
By GeekMom Blog | March 4, 2012 | 8:15 am
Recently I had the opportunity to go to Megacon 2012. I was super
excited to see that DC Comics was going to be there and made a point to
sniff them out.
While walking around Megacon on Friday, I had the first highlight of
my weekend. I got the opportunity to talk to a gentleman working George Perez’s booth. I started out just asking him some questions about what kind of work George might be doing on the New 52.
He gave me some interesting insight as to how some of the artists have
been mixed around into different jobs and some who use to ink the
characters are now doing the concept sketches.
He was excited to hear that I was a newbie and just trying to learn
about the different aspects of how the comics come to my digital
screen. I shared with him my story and an article
that I wrote that DC Tweeted and put up on their Facebook a few weeks
ago. He was really interested and also disappointed at some of the fan
boys reactions to it because comics are for everyone.

This photo was taken on February 17, 2012 using a Nikon D40.
For those who do not know who the wonderful man George Perez is, he
is the father of Teen Titans and basically anything DC related. He is
crazy nice and a great artist. He does a lot of work for the Hero
Initiative and cosplayers come help raise money for the group so thats
where this is from.

popular era, and Dan Jurgens, writer and artist of the Titans during the
mid to late 1990′s. The panelists shared stories about working on
Titans stories and answering questions from the audience, including
their views about the New 52 version of the Titans.
Thanks go out to Nick Cardy, George Pérez and Dan Jurgens for allowing me to record their panel and post it for this episode.

February 23, 2012: MegaCon Report - Teen Titans Panel
By Billy Hogan.
Three eras of Teen Titans stories came together at Orland, Florida's
MegaCon on Saturday, February 18th. Original Teen Titans artist Nick
Cardy, now 92 years old, was joined by George Pérez, the artist of what
is probably the most popular Titans era, and Dan Jurgens, writer and
artist of the Titans in the mid to late 1990's.
George said that the one thing he bemoans about the current state of
comic book costume design, the major publishers have a small group of
people design the costumes, instead of having all the artists designing
the costumes. He compared it to real life, where everyone doesn't go to
one clothing manufacturer or wear the same uniform.

February 21, 2012: MegaCon Report - DC Comics: The New 52 Panel
By Billy Hogan.- · Steve Younis on February 21, 2012 12:05am EST·
Dan Didio, Co-Publisher of DC Comics, began MegaCon's Saturday panel
about the New 52 by thanking all of the fans who came to the panel,
which began at 10:30am. He then introduced the panel guests: Executive
Editor Eddie Berganza, writer of All-Star Western and The Ray Jimmy
Palmiotti, Batman artist Greg Capulo, writer of New Guardians Tony
Bedard and writer and artist of Green Arrow and Superman Dan Jurgens.
Didio then asked Jurgens about his return to Superman. Jurgens began by
saying that when he had talked with George Pérez, he was surprised when
George said, "I can't believe I need reference to draw Superman." After
beginning his run on the title, Jurgens said, "I can't believe I need
reference to draw Superman." His first issue will be issue seven, with
Keith Giffen as co-writer and Jesus Merino as inker, who Dan said was
doing a knockout job on the art. The creative team's goal is to tell
some wide open Superman stories that are fitting for the character,
while doing some interesting for Clark and Jimmy. As for what's in store
for Clark and Jimmy, Dan gave one word, "bedbugs."
