The DC Nation panel we WERE on time for thankfully. The panelist were Sterling Gates, Shane Davis, Nick Spencer, Jimmy Palmiatti Ivan Brandon with Ian Sattler rounding everything out by leading the discussions.
Palmiatti had announced that a new Freedom Fighters book was coming out. With art by Travis Moore and inking by Trevor Scott. He confirmed that this is a 100% continuation from series of years past. Confirms that the Renegades show up. The book will be an ongoing monthly title. Hints that the standout star will be the Human Bomb.
New Doc Savage book coming out from Ivan Brandon and Brian Azzarello. I missed the rest of the details because of Steveâ€™s dumb ass.
Nick Spencer talks about his co-feature in Action Comics, Jimmy Olson. Says that Chloe Sullivan from Smallville finally gets her introduction to the DCU.
Shane Davis announces that heâ€™s working on a new Superman book titled Superman Earth 1. States that this delves into Supermanâ€™s younger years but stresses that this is not a retelling.Focuses on stories of Superman when he was 21, a time generally overlooked in his past.
Jim Sterling announces he is working on Bizarro story arc.
Someone (forgot who) announced that Warren Ellisâ€™s arc of Hellblazer is finally being released. Apparently the storyline was cancelled because of the event at Columbine Highschool.
Shane Davis expressed interest on working on a Captain Marvel book.

â€œDoes DC Plan to do anymore Watchman comics?â€ – Fan
â€œNext Question.â€-Ian Sattler
Damian Wayne and Tim Drake to stay Robin and Red Robin respectively. Nightwing and Bruce Wayne shakeup probable.
One of the most telling things was the Watchman question. The response alluded to either â€œIâ€™m sick of this fucking question.â€ or that this was actually happening. If it does happen itâ€™ll be interesting to see what kind of backlash they get for such a controversial move.
