New York Comic Con is a staccato tizzy of panels, press releases, and floor chatter. It can be difficult to keep up with all of the news coming out of the show, so we've narrowed it down to ten reveals that are particularly noteworthy.
Also, we have oodles of creator interviews coming down the pike — with folks like Matt Fraction, Brian Wood, and Jeff Lemire — so keep your eyes peeled for those.
1.) At the Legendary Comics panel, Frank Miller announced that he would be working on further Sin City books for Dark Horse Comics. [CBM]
2.) Where was Captain Marvel after DC Comics' New 52 relaunch? He's coming back...sooner or later. Explains DC's The Source blog:
Written by NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Geoff Johns and illustrated by acclaimed artist Gary Frank, THE CURSE OF SHAZAM will unfold as a back-up adventure that will appear in JUSTICE LEAGUE – also written by Johns.
3.) Storm will be joining Brian Michael Bendis' Avengers roster. [Bleeding Cool]
4.) In February 2012, Paul Cornell will be writing the Vertigo series Saucer Country, which — according to Tor — "will follow the governor of New Mexico who is abducted by aliens just when she's about to run for president."
5.) At the Marvel TV panel, several details about upcoming shows were spilled. The Guillermo del Toro Hulk series will follow the depiction of the green goliath in The Avengers. The ABC Family Cloak and Dagger series occurs in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, and the Mockingbird spy-in-training show for ABC Family was sold as "Alias mixed together with Felicity." Carol "Ms. Marvel" Danvers and Luke Cage will appear on A.K.A. Jessica Jones. Finally, the 2013 Hulk: Agents of S.M.A.S.H. cartoon will star Hulk, the Red Hulk, Skaar, A-Bomb, and She-Hulk.

6.) After killing Sabretooth, Jeph Loeb and Simone Bianchi are bringing him back from the dead in a new story. Marvel also hinted at the return of (what appears to be) Jean Grey with this teaser. The names attached to that story were Brian Michael Bendis, Ed Brubaker, Olivier Coipel, Matt Fraction, Jonathan Hickman, Andy Kubert, and John Romita Jr. Finally, the Runaways will appear in Avengers Academy.

7.) Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips will be collaborating on the supernatural noir series Fatale for Image Comics. Here's the synopsis:
A reporter in 2012 stumbles on a secret that leads him down the darkest path imaginable… to a seductive woman who's been on the run since 1935, a mobster who may be an immortal demon monster, and the stories of all the doomed men who've been caught in their decades-long struggle. FATALE blends noir and horror to tell a riveting epic unlike anything you've seen before.
Fatale is in stores January 2012. [iFanboy]
8.) Image Comics will be adapting Alan Moore's unused scripts for Supreme. Said Rob Liefeld to CBR:
We have had Alan Moore's final script for years, but we needed a prominent creator to take the reins and complete the vision. Erik Larsen kind of popped off the top of his head what he would do with Supreme, and myself, Robert Kirkman and Eric Stephenson hounded him for months to commit to doing it. He had to figure out his schedule, but he finally committed and Supreme fans will be ecstatic.
9.) Krypto is officially dead in the new DC Universe. This news makes me want to throw my laptop against the wall, slam back a few glasses of applejack, and watch The Adventures of Superpup until the tears dry. [Bleeding Cool]
