Before I get to the schedule of events for Saturday, here’s some of the late breaking news just about comic books that’s coming from the show.

At the Spotlight Panel on DC Comic’s Geoff Johns, Geoff offered more details about his upcoming Three Jokers comic book. He showed off a glimpse of artist Jason Fabok’s designs for Joker, Batman, Batgirl and Red Hood. Jason said on Twitter: “My influences are Bolland’s designs from Killing Joke, the design work done on Batman 89 and the classic art of DC Comics past, which stands the test of time.”
