More news out of NYCC 2010. Wildstorm R.I.P.
“I know some of the people had had some questions about WildStorm at previous panels,” Lee said, adding that the WildStorm Universe characters were going into “creative dormancy” which he saw as a “glass half full” situation since many of the WildStorm staff will be moving to the new digital comics arm of DC in Burbank. Lee then brought up WildStorm manager Hank Kanalz on stage, who he credited with expanding the imprint’s move into video game comics and other moves that made it a “business engine” that did work like recoloring on “Watchmen,” the CMX manga line and work on the DC Universe online video game.
“We wanted to tap into that entrepreneurial spirit that was really the core of WildStorm as we continue to branch out into the digital space.” Lee then made the announcement (as reported on Robot 6) that WildStorm’s Hank Kanalz had been promoted to Senior Vice President of Digital for DC.
