The following is a partial statement from Comic-Con International:
It is the policy of the organization to continue to closely monitor information from local and national healthcare officials as it pertains to the COVID-19 pandemic. Never could we have imagined what the world experienced in 2020 and continues to experience today. While we are buoyed by the rollout of the vaccine and the growing number of individuals being inoculated, it appears that July will still be too early to safely hold an in-person event of the magnitude of Comic-Con. For this reason, we have made the challenging decision to postpone Comic-Con 2021 as an in-person gathering until our 2022 dates, and once again hold this year’s celebration as the free online Comic-Con@Home. Unfortunately, the challenges of this past year and the multiple postponements of our two largest events have left us with limited financial resources, so this year the online experience will be reduced to a three-day event, spanning July 23-25, 2021.
Announced today at DC’s Wonder Comics panel at New York Comic Con, Amy Reeder (Batwoman, Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, Rocketgirl) will be writing, drawing, and coloring the brand new Amethyst monthly comic series launching February 2020.
Following the character’s triumphant reintroduction in the pages of Young Justice, the new Amethyst series follows teenager Amy Winston, a.k.a. Princess Amethyst, as she returns to her magical kingdom to find it in ruins, her subjects vanished, and none in the realm of Gemworld still loyal to her house. To solve this mystery, restore House Amethyst, and save her family, Amy must find new allies and confront dark secrets on a deadly quest to the farthest reaches of Gemworld.
Breaking news out of New York Comic Con. Writer Brian Michael Bendis announces that he’ll spearhead a new imprint at the company called Wonder Comics. Within that, he’ll be writing a new Young Justice series. On top of that of that, he’ll be introducing a Teen Lantern too! The series launches in January. Hit the jump for the first promo image.
In spring 2019, the Justice League returns for Justice League vs. The Fatal Five. Originally composed of supercriminals Tharok, Emerald Empress, Validus, Mano and the Persuader, the Fatal Five were first introduced in 1967 and are more commonly associated with the Legion of Super-Heroes. While they have appeared in animation before, both on Justice League Unlimited and on the Legion of Superheroes animated series, they’ve been largely dormant for a while (though Emerald Empress did play a key role in the recent Justice League vs. Suicide Squad comic book event). This is an original story, and there’s much we don’t know about it.
DC announced artists for a number of previously unveiled Zoom and Ink titles, including Andie Tong on Green Lantern: Legacy; Gustavo Duarte on Dear Justice League; Thomas Pitilli on Gotham High; Chris Wildgoose on Batman: Nightwalker; and the fan-favorite team Gurihiru on the much-anticipated Superman Smashes the Klan, written by MacArthur Fellowship recipient Gene Luen Yang.
