Brian Bendis Talks Event Leviathan at Diamond Retail Summit in Las Vegas (Video)

DC Comics has been giving their address at the Diamond Retail Summit in Las Vegas. And while they didn’t have Brian Bendis in the building, he was on hand to talk about Event Leviathan. And we have a video of such – as well as a run through a number of DC Comics plans for the rest of the year… most of which you know. But still.

Bendis spoke about how he had been planning Event Leviathan since the day he walked into DC Comics and was talking to DC publisher Dan DiDio about how many redundant organisations had built up in the DC Universe, doing the same things, and Dan asked Brian to consolidate them all, took all the pieces and gave them all to a big new villain.

And how the greatest detectives of DC will gather together, Leviathan makes a giant move in the Superman Leviathan Rising Special, and the mystery of Leviathan will be tackled over one night, or what comes in the morning will be too late… and how he created a story with Event Leviathan just for Alex Maleev to play to all his strengths…

Have a listen. Presented at the Diamond Retail Summit in Las Vegas, check out the rest of our coverage with this tag. And courtesy of Dennis Barger of Wonderworld Comics, Michigan.
