The Archie Forever panel was held Friday afternoon at the New York Comic Con. The room was filled with fans. Alex Segura (editor) moderated the panel that included Mike Pellerito (president of Archie comics), John Goldwater (CEO/Publisher), Chip Zdarsky (Jughead, writer), Erica Henderson (Jughead, artist), Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Archie Afterlife, writer), Dan Parent (Kevin Keller, writer), Victor Gorelick (Co-President), Robert Hack (Sabrina, artist).The panel started with talk about the new Jughead series from Chip Zdarsky and Erica Henderson. Just the mention of the book got a great response from the crowd. Chip told the story of how he got the job. Chip had reached out to editor Alex Segura about doing a variant cover for the Archie relaunch. This conversation ended up in Chip being offered the writing job for Jughead. Erica Henderson signed on to the book as soon as she heard Chip was writing. Chip said that writing dialogue for Jughead just comes naturally to him. Growing up he’s tried to emulate Jughead for years. Chip also talked about how each issue of the series will feature a fantasy sequence. This gives Chip the freedom to incorporate some great things like the Super Teens, Time Police, and Agents of Riverdale.Next was some news about the new Archie relaunch. Once the topic of the new Archie comic came up John Goldwater was quick to say that Archie: Afterlife really made this relaunch possible. The success of that book really showed that fans are willing to check out these books when you put top talent on them. Annie Wu (Black Canary, artist) will be drawing issue #4 of Archie. Issue #5 & #6 will be drawn by Veronica Fish. The first three issues will be collected in a Collector’s Edition with a new cover by Fiona Staples.The Archie Horror books were up next. Fans were assured that Archie: Afterlife #9 is written and is now in the hands of artist Francesco Francavilla. Because of the long wait the book will be an oversized edition. Fans can think of it as #9.5. The upcoming issue will focus on Reggie Mantle and Sabrina. Josie & the Pussycats will be featured in the book soon. A fan asked a question about a possible Sabrina movie, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa was able to speak about it. Originally a movie was being developed and would feature an almost super-hero version of Sabrina. That version of the movie is no longer going to happen. It was teased that a very big announcement would be coming soon about a Sabrina movie. It appears that a horror themed movie that is more in line with the current series will be announced soon.Dan Parent spoke about his upcoming Kevin Keller series. The book will follow an older version of Kevin living his life. Veronica will be featured as a supporting character in the book. Dan really enjoys how she works as a foil for Kevin. Dan also noted that he’s keen on Cheryl Blossom and may incorporate her into the book.A new Betty & Veronica series by Adam Hughes was briefly talked about. They are still not ready to announce the full creative team. Mike Pellerito mentioned that he’s aware of some the artist that Adam will be bringing to the book and he is very excited. More news on the series will be released soon.A fourth ongoing series was teased by editor Alex Segura. While it was not made official what the title would be, it was strongly suggested that the new ongoing would be Josie and the Pussycats. Other projects that were talked about were the new CW Riverdale series. Currently the pilot is written and directors are being looked at. The series will take a slightly darker take on the Archie characters. The show will focus on the Archie/Betty/Veronica love triangle. Fans can also expect to see The Blossom Twins, and Josie & the Pussycats. The upcoming Archie Musical was touched upon. Adam McKay (Anchorman, writer/director) is writing the book while they look for songwriters. (Source: Bleeding Cool)NYCC ’15: JOHN ROMITA JR DRAWS DARK KNIGHT III STORY 10/10/15 @ 1:24 pm EST

By BYRON BREWERNYCC '15: HOPELESS, LATOUR & THOMPSON CRAFT CROSS-DIMENSIONAL CHAOS IN "SPIDER-WOMEN" EVENT10/10/15 @ 11:40 am EST
I am a fan of Dr. Strange going back in same-day reading to the Roy Thomas / Gene Colan / Tom Palmer issues of the magazine, some of the most excellent comics ever produced, and of course I became a big fan of the Stan Lee / Steve Ditko era after discovering it. My point is I have waited a long time for Dr. Strange in a solo comic.
To use a phrase from one of my sports, Jason Aaron and Chris Bachalo hit this one out of the park!
You know, it really does not feel like a first issue, and yet it has everything, all the information for new readers and assurance for longtime readers, that the first issue of a previously published character usually has. But you don't notice it, and that is Jason Aaron's best magic trick.
Being a fan of his Thor
, I was not as worried about Aaron as I usually am when someone begins a new chapter in the career of Dr. Strange. I really have had a lifelong love affair with this character, I think largely stemming from those early Thomas / Colan issues as well as the genius of Ditko and the emotion of Steve Englehart. So when I saw the script of Aaron and the creativity of Bachalo (he is doing his own colors, brilliant!), I knew I was in the right place. It's been a long wait.
I just really admire the way that Jason is handling Dr. Strange
. Stephen's seeing to the mystical needs of the common man and the weirdness of both his own world and eternal Greenwich Village, the little things like using his Cloak of Levitation as a stair step down from the window, an appearance of the Eye of Agamotto when we are invited into Strange's world, without mentioning either devise, tells me that this team knows how to handle this character. It is not something every writer or artist, no matter how talented, can do. Marv Wolfman, a great writer with the exceptionally excellent Tomb of Dracula
, was terrible on Dr. Strange
It was great to see Dr. Strange actually reciting a spell again, although I could have used a longer one with a little more poetry but I think that was to show the readers that spells aren't always available for what he needs. For some reason, I don't know what it is, but I do like the bit with the weapons. We'll have to see how this goes.
The overall feel of this book is right, so right, and I hope it is commercially a success. Also I hope Dr. Strange doesn't get involved in too many "events" the tend to tear up the continuity of today's books. I'm still a print, month-to-month guy.
I also enjoy that Aaron is emphasizing the toll that being the Sorcerer Supreme takes on our hero. It's been done before, but never to this extent and or with this understanding.
Dr. Strange has a good chance to have a decent run this time around, and I hope his creators can accomplish that and I hope this book finds a great audience in today's market.
Me? I'm sold.
But ever since the final pages of this issue's main story, I keep checking my head. Hmm ...

"THE FLASH": HERE'S WHY JAY GARRICK NEEDS BARRY ALLEN'S HELP AGAINST ZOOM10/10/15 @ 11:34 am EST
Last year, Marvel Comics' "Spider-Verse" event saw spider-powered heroes from across the Multiverse band together to fight a family of dimension-hopping hunters intent on consuming their very souls. The conflict was harrowing, transforming many of its survivors from strangers into friends. One such world spanning friendship was formed between the Spider-Woman of Earth 616 (Jessica Drew), the Spider-Woman of Earth 65 (Gwen Stacy), and the new Earth 616 hero Silk (Cindy Moon) in the early issues of writer Dennis Hopeless' "Spider-Woman" series.
This spring, Hopeless teams with fellow writers Jason Latour and Robbie Thompson to revisit that friendship in a crossover event that begins in the upcoming "Spider-Women" #1. The story then runs through their respective "Spider-Woman," "Silk," and "Spider-Gwen" titles and concludes in "Spider-Women" #2. The crossover was announced by Marvel today at their "All-New, All-Different Marvel" panel at New York Comic Con.

While it's no secret that Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) will have a new ally in Jay Garrick (Teddy Sears) when facing the threat of Zoom throughout "The Flash's" Season 2, beyond Jay's desire to stop the bad guy and go home, there's more to the story than has been revealed in the teasers and interviews leading up to next week's episode.
"Zoom stole my speed," Sears revealed in an interview with KTLA. "Season 1 ends, and there'ssort of a rift in the sky, and I get pulled up into it. Just prior to that, my speed is stolen, so the mission is, you know, to get my speed back. And then I need Barry to help me do that."
The title of the next episode, "The Flash of Two Worlds," was the story title for "Flash" #123, in which the Silver Age Flash Barry Allen met the Golden Age Flash Garrick for the very first time, opening up the multiverse for DC Comics and birthing a tradition of team-up adventures between the many Earths of the DC Comics Universe.

NYCC '15: DOMINIC COOPER, BRIDGET REGAN RETURN FOR "AGENT CARTER" SEASON 210/09/15 @ 6:50 pm EST
At New York Comic Con, it was announced that Marvel Studios would change the schedules of their first black solo lead and female solo lead films, Black Panther
and Captain Marvel
, to accommodate a new project, Ant Man And The Wasp.
This seems like the first public sign of the new Marvel Studios, divorced from the rest of Marvel and reporting directly to Disney as part of a coup by Marvel movie boss Kevin Feige
against Marvel CEO Isaac Perlmutte
The status of the planned Inhumans
movie remained unchanged however, Publicly at least.
Bleeding Cool is reporting from "well connected sources" that the second shoe dropping will be the move of the planned Inhumans
movie off the slate completely.
That was the film most pushed for by the Marvel TV side, which still reports to Perlmutter. And to which Marvel’s Agents Of SHIELD
has committed to providing three years worth of promotion towards in its storylines, establishing the Inhumans concept to the fans.
Until that point, the TV was mostly an afterthought, having to catch up to the film continuity rather han provide anything for the film’s to use.
But, in the great war of Marvel Film Vs Marvel TV that the Kevin Feige coup began, it looks like the first casualty of that war is the Inhumans
