Today at the New York Comic Con, DC Comics Executive Story Editor Ian Sattler joined creators J. Michael Straczynski, Paul Levitz, James Robinson, J.T. Krul Shane Davis, Gail Simone, Peter J. Tomasi, Tony Bedard, Kevin Maguire and Nick Spencer on stage for a very lively discussion regarding future DC Universe projects.
