This past weekend was New York Comic Con, the East Coast’s largest comics and pop culture event of the year. Multiversity brought 15 staffers to the convention this year for interviews, panel reports, and more. Over the next month or so, we’ll be sharing all of our experiences here on the site. So, even if you couldn’t make it yourself, you can see the con through our eyes.
Steve Orlando is, perhaps, the writer at DC who uses DC’s continuity and mythology in the most creative ways. He just wrapped up a short run on “Wonder Woman,” bridging the gap between James Robinson and G. Willow Wilson’s runs on the title. Next month, he and Travel Foreman launch “Electric Warriors,” a new series set in the same future that Jack Kirby set “Kamandi: The Last Boy on Earth” in. Then, one month later, “Martian Manhunter” from Orlando and Riley Rossmo drops, which is a new maxiseries that focuses on Orlando’s self-professed favorite character. Zach Wilkerson, co-host of the DC3cast, interviewed Orlando on Friday of New York Comic Con.
Thanks to Steve for taking the time, and braving the show floor, to speak with us. “Electric Warriors” #1 drops on November 4th, and “Martian Manhunter” #1 hits stores on December 5th.
