DC Comics releases its entire Comic-Con '10 schedule

By Michael Cavna

From Batman to Barry Allen, Superman to the Green Lantern, you could do far worse than just follow the likes of DC stars Grant Morrison and Geoff Johns whenever they're scheduled to speak.

Fortunately for DC fans, Johns and Morrison will get plenty of stage time, judging by the lineup. DC Comics has just released its programming schedule for all four days of San Diego Comic-Con 2010.

DC Comics' sessions should be especially interesting given its leadership shuffle back in February. That's when Johns was named chief creative officer, and Dan DiDio and Jim Lee were named co-publishers.

DiDio and Lee are also scheduled to get major spotlight time at Con. Particularly interesting looks to be a session with the two publishers for "a relaxed Sunday afternoon discussion."

For the full 'Con schedule for DC Comics, including Vertigo and WildStorm, just click below to read on.
