It’s a week of changes for DC. The last remnants of those who are moving West have packed up shop, and the WildStorm offices in La Jolla are closing for good, ending nearly 20 years of history, innovation and comics.
To mark the event, an alumni lunch was held. Apparently the turnout was insane. The final group shot awaits, but above is a sampling, with Hank Kanalz, John Nee, and Carla and Jim Lee. Jim Lee tweeted:
The final WildStorm lunch. So many alumni came from near & far for our last meal together @Kanalz @johnnee @Joke2far
And a video of the gathering for the photo.
Bittersweet for many.
Any now the new, fully staffed DC Entertainment takes shape in Burbank. Meanwhile, the New York offices are under construction, consolidating from 5 floors to 2 or 3.
The balance has shifted.
