DC Comics held their “Superman: Rebirth” panel at San Diego Comic-Con yesterday, with “New Super-Man” writer Gene Yang, “Superman” co-writers Peter Tomasi and Pat Gleason, along with the “Action Comics” team of writer Dan Jurgens and artist Tyler Kirkham on hand to discuss the Superman books.

SUPERMAN co-writers Peter Tomasi and Pat Gleason were on hand to talk about their current story arc, “Son of Superman,” and how the current Superman, Clark White, is doing a different kind of parental multi-tasking: trying to help his son Jon adjust to his rapidly growing abilities, determining whether or not to shield him from the rest of the world, while at the same time trying to keep his old foe The Eradicator from “eradicating” the whole El family! SUPERMAN #3 is in stores now featuring chapter three of “Son of Superman!”

The ACTION COMICS team of writer Dan Jurgens and artist Tyler Kirkham spoke about “Path to Doom,” their current story arc where Lex Luthor has laid claim to the mantle of Metropolis’ protector (right down to the “S” shield and cape), while a new Clark Kent surfaces. Oh, and Doomsday is rampaging through the streets of Metropolis! Chapter four of Path to Doom is in the pages of Action Comics #960, on sale July 27!

Award-winning writer and National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature Gene Luen Yang introduced fans to his hero for the next age: Kenan Kong, the New Super-Man. Yang spoke of working with rising star artist Viktor Bogdanovic on giving life to this new hero, and what his plans are for “Made In China,” the debut story arc that turns an arrogant bully into Shanghai’s newest superhero. The debut issue of NEW SUPER-MAN is on sale now at local comic stores and online.

Look for a video of the “Superman: Rebirth” panel from our reporter Luis Jaime in the next day or two.

I attended the pannel and nothing new was revealed. Fun fact, none of them were sure where the idea for Kryptonite first originated.

Superman #10 by Jerry Siegel, the k-metal from krypton. Never really published because Superman reveals his identity to Lois and DC didn’t like this direction. The idea was picked up in the Radio Series with the name Kryptonite. So it first appeared in the radio, but was really invented by Siegel.

Wow…glad DC has people who “know” the character on the books. *sigh* :(

Nothing new revealed for Superman? That’s disappointing. What about for DC in general? Like what’s up with the Watchmen-New52 Link?

Not sure, I didn’t attend the Justice League pannel.

I think we’re ignoring one major reveal these previews showed….. Bibbo’s Back!

Unless red trunks are on the agenda for Superman’s costume, I don’t care at this point.
