This episode covers both DC Comics panels from MegaCon 2012. The first panel was titled DC ALL ACCESS. Dan Didio, co-publisher of DC, moderated the panel, which was composed of DC Executive Editor Eddie Berganza, writer Tony Bedard and artist Kenneth Rocafort.

The Saturday panel was titled DC COMICS: THE NEW 52. Dan Didio also moderated this panel, which included Eddie Berganza, writer Jimmy Palmiotti, artist Greg Capulo, Tony Bedard and Dan Jurgens.

DC did not release any big news at MegaCon. Their focus was on the New 52, and the panelists shared details of the evolution of the relaunch, as well as hints about what readers can look forward to.

Episode #218 Part I: The Working Faithfully Panel!

Download Episode #218 part I!

This panel was the first of its kind in the five MegaCons I’ve attended, and being a Christian I had to check it out. I want to thank the panelists, Sergio Cariello, Billy Tucci and Chuck Dixon, for giving me permission to record their panel and share it on this podcast.

Sergio Cariello is the artist for the ACTION BIBLE. http://www.sergiocariello.com/ http://theactionbible.com/

Billy Tucci is the writer and artist for the comic book Nativity story A CHILD IS BORN. http://apostlearts.com/

Chuck Dixon wrote BATTLE OF DESTINY, a graphic novel adaption of the fall of King Saul and the rise of David, published by Ape Entertainmenthttp://www.dixonverse.net/

The three comic book professionals shared their perspective as Christians working in the industry. It was an honest, frank and even at times humorous discussion about their personal faith, their experiences dealing with both secular and Christian publishers, as well a dialogue with the audience.

Next Episode: The DC Comics panels, followed by episodes featuring other panels from MegaCon 2012. Next week we will resume our look at the silver age adventures of Superman.
