On the final Friday of September, 2011, DC Comics joined Golden Apple Comics and Comic Book Resources in Hollywood to celebrate the first month of the New 52, DC's just-completed first wave of the publisher's revamped DC Universe. Featuring New 52 creators Dan DiDio, Kyle Higgins, Scott Lobdell, Brian Buccellato, Sterling Gates, Adam Glass, Joshua Hale Fialkov, Bernard Chang and Mike Costa, fans and pros mingled throughout the night, signing autographs, eating food and talking comics.
CBR photographer Pinguino Kolb was there to capture the events of the evening while CBR Executive Producer Jonah Weiland provides the commentary.
|The signing begins. I'd say throughout the night we had a good 500-600 people come through, with great enthusiasm. This was much more party than signing, although there was plenty of signing going on.||Kyle Higgins|
