We’re actually down in Baltimore for the Diamond Retailer summit. We arrived yesterday as the Comic-Con was wrapping up and heard that Saturday was boffo, and even Sunday was bustling in a new, larger floor space. We got plenty of news and views in a short while, and we’ll have more of a news roundup later. Also: Jeff Newelt’s Flickr set
In the meanwhile, CBR talks of Dan Didio’s “oceans of guff”:
A fan asked Didio if the “oceans of guff” he’s gotten recently has affected him. Not at all, he said. “We’ve had a game plan for a while,” he said. “I feel very confident in where it’s going. I have a lot of faith in ‘Countdown’ and where it’s going. Everything we do is part of a learning process.” Didio explained that the “showrunner” writing method used for “Countdown” was in response to the difficulty “52” writers were having.
Marvel news was much more random — No Ultimate Misty Night or Spider-Ham. More is expected at today’s retailer summit.
