DC Entertainment will be bringing some of the comic book industry’s most iconoclastic writers and artists to the convention to discuss this year’s highly anticipated BEFORE WATCHMEN comic book event.


“We’ve gathered some of the most talented writers and artists to expand on the stories of the most provocative comic book characters of all time,” said DC Entertainment Co-Publisher and panelist Dan DiDio. “The hard part is waiting all the way until June to share the craziness with fans. We just might have to get people talking early about the importance of the five truths.”


Although the first issue of BEFORE WATCHMEN doesn’t go on sale until the first week of June, the announcement of all new stories building on the foundation of the bestselling graphic novel of all time is already the talk of the comic book industry. Among the creators who will be on hand to discuss why they signed on for the project and to answer fan questions will be Brian Azzarello, Lee Bermejo, Amanda Conner, Adam Hughes, J. Michael Straczynski and Len Wein.


The BEFORE WATCHMEN panel will take place on Saturday, April 14, 2pm – 3pm. C2E2 itself will take place April 13 – 15, 2012 in the North Building at the McCormick Place Convention Center.
