It’s been a good week for Bleeding Cool in terms of confirmations. Stories such as Ta-Nehisi Coates on Captain America from June last year, Jason Aaron on Avengers from July, Nick Spencer on Amazing Spider-Man from July, and Ryan Ottley from this January. Then there are more recent stories such as Donny Cates on Venom and Cosmic Ghost Rider. Two years ago, we said that the Sandman Presents imprint would be launched at ECCC. And it was — but only two years later.
We also mentioned another imprint from DC Comics that we expected to be announced at the show: Black Label, a new line of mature-readers alternate-continuity titles focusing on DC’s biggest name characters such as Batman, Superman, and a Wonder Woman comic written by Kelly Sue DeConnick.
Well, I have been told from sources that Black Label definitely does exist, but that it won’t be announced at ECCC. Apparently one imprint is more than enough for Seattle stages.
Instead, I am to look for something a little more mainstream to make the announcement, just as DC Zoom and DC Ink were announced at the American Library Association, or how John Ridley announced The Other History of the DC Universe at DC In DC in Washington DC at the Newseum over MLK weekend.
Could it be SXSW? Book Fair? Something of that ilk? Any suggestions?
