Secondly, this new Vertigo series by Paul Cornell, Saucer Country, sounds like it'd be interesting. It's about a governor of New Mexico who is abducted by aliens just prior to her announcement that she'll be running for president... or so she thinks. Cornell said that it's kind of like "X-Files meets the West Wing", and I've liked everything he's done so far, so it'll probably be worth a look.
Here's one of the covers,
From the DC Animated Panel,
"As the panel transitioned away from "Batman: Year One," Miereanu had one last surprise for the audience. "We don't have Kevin Conroy as the voice of Batman here; he is the voice in 'Batman: Arkham City' and the voice in 'Justice League: Doom!'" the moderator told the assembled fans. "What the people over there don't realize is, he's sitting with them!" Conroy stood up from his seat in the audience and walked to the stage to a standing ovation from the crowd, a round of applause which grew to a roar as Conroy proclaimed, in his iconic Batman voice, "I am vengeance! I am the night! I am Batman!"
Inspired by the "JLA: Tower of Babel" storyline by Mark Waid and Bryan Hitch, the animated "Justice League: Doom" is directed by Lauren Montgomery and features the late Dwayne McDuffie's final script. Longtime fans of the DC Animated Universe will no doubt recognize a number of voice actors reprising their roles from "Justice League." Alongside Conroy as Batman is Tim Daly as Superman, Susan Eisenberg as Wonder Woman, Carl Lumby as J'onn J'onzz, Michael Rosenbaum as Flash (albiet, the Barry Allen version) and Alexis Denisof as Mirror Master. But the audience went crazy when they heard Nathan Fillion would be playing Green Lantern."
And in the JLA Panel, it seems that Geoff Johns and Gary Frank are going to be writing a Captain Marvel back-up called 'the Curse of Shazam!'. I have mixed feelings about this. On the one hand I think that he did write a nice slant on Captain Marvel storylines through Billy's relationship with Stargirl, for example, but in his later stuff he seemed to have a fixation with making Mary evil. Even after she'd been fixed in Final Crisis.
Ah, we'll just have to see where it goes. Though if they have Shazam giving the powers to a younger group of kids... that would REALLY make his relationship with the people he mentors kind of skeevy.
