Writer Paul Cornell has listed the various panels and signings he’ll be attending whilst at SDCC this weekend, amongst them a gender in comics panel and the X-Men panel. But he’s also revealed that at some point during the weekend, he’s going to be watching on as one of the already-booked panels makes some kind of special huge announcement regarding a new comic he’ll be writing.
Cornell won’t be appearing on the panel himself, because it breaks his panel parity rule – a panel has to have at least a 50:50 male to female ratio before he’ll appear on it. This mystery panel is all-male, so therefore he’ll be watching from the front row of the crowd. That detail aside, he hasn’t revealed anything else about the place, the time, or the project –
I won’t say what day that’ll be, because I don’t want to give away any clues, but I will say that it’s a comics project, that it’s a one-off issue, and that I’m very excited. A new blog post specifically about that should spring up here as soon as the panel’s finished.
Intrigue! Suspense! Speculate wildly!
