There’s a lot that happens in the world of superheroes everyday, and we at Comic Hero News don’t have the ability to write up a full story about everything, as much as we’d like to. So, we bring you Speeding Bullets – for all of those pieces of news that are fired our way that are worth noticing, but don’t merit a full story in their own right.
- The Secret Origins: The Story of DC Comics documentary, which goes in to the 75 years of DC comics, aired at Comic-Con, and the WB has given us a video showing fan reaction, as well including an interview with Dan DiDio.
- One of the best things about the Greg Rucka/J.H. Williams III run on Detective Comics was the stunning art for Batwoman. With Batwoman 0 set to be released soon, we should hope for some good art as well, right? Here’s the first cover, thanks to DC Universe: The Source. I think it’s pretty good, myself.
- Dark Horse Comics has released the trailer for the Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season Eight – Motion Comic.
- Marvel announced that Jonathan Hickman would be taking a look at the Ultimate universe’s version of the Thunder God in Ultimate Comics: Thor.
- At the “Marvel – What’s Next? Welcome to the Digital House of Ideas” panel, it was announced that there will be a new motion comic, titled Thor & Loki: Blood Brothers, based on Robert Rodi and Esad Ribic’s Loki miniseries.
- During the “DC Event Horizon” panel, it was announced that Smallville‘s Chloe Sullivan will be appearing in the Jimmy Olsen co-feature of Action Comics 893, due out this fall.
- During the Spider-Man panel at Comic-Con, Marvel revealed that the “Brand New Day” storyline will be coming to an end this year, with an arc titled “Origin of the Species”, which will involve almost all of the web-head’s famous villains. It was also revealed that Spidey will be getting some new costumes (yes, plural), and that there will be new Spider-Girl stories.
- Just in case you’re one of the people who has been bummed out about the absence of Wally West since Barry Allen reclaimed the title of The Flash, Geoff Johns told crowds at Comic-Con that he would be working on a book titled Flash: Speed Force, which would focus on the speedsters other than Barry – including Wally, the twins, Bart and Jesse Quick.
