This year's San Diego Comic-Con was an embarrassment of riches for the scholarly fan, with an absurd amount of programming focused on different aspects of comic book culture and history.  On Sunday at 1:45, I got to sit in on the Avengers, X-Men, Dr. Strange and Sgt Fury 50th panel, which featured a multi-generational group of Marvel's finest creators: Mark Waid, John Romita Jr., Brian Bendis, and Roy Thomas.

The super team of world builder Max Brooks ("World War Z"), artist Shane Davis ("Superman: Earth One"), and master comics writer Mark Waid ("Kingdom Come," "Superman: Birthright") are back at San Diego Comic-Con, revealing some of the final details of their supernatural action comic, "Shadow Walk," out this November from Legendary Entertainment (the comics arm of "Pacific Rim" studio Legendary Pictures). The story asks what if the Valley of the Shadow of Death was a physical place, one where something dangerous might be emerging. Into this plot, Waid, Brooks, and Davis toss in troubled hero John Raines, a soldier falsely accused of killing his own squad and now tasked with confronting very real demons.

With Legendary debuting the cover of the book today exclusively through MTV Geek, we thought we'd chat with the prolific Mr. Waid about world building with Max Brooks, his "Man of Steel" reaction, and the moral obligation of the writer when creating a hero.

Mark Waid is no stranger to relaunches. From representing the newest take on Daredevil in decades, to recent runs on The Rocketeer and Steed & Peel, Waid has put his imprint on some of the greatest characters in the comic book medium. Now, he's taking on another icon, as he tells what might be the final tale of the Green Hornet for Dynamite. We'll find out more this week at New York Comic Con, but in advance of the official announcement we chatted with Waid about his take on Britt Reid, Kato, and even the Black Beauty:

MTV Geek: Mark, between Green Hornet, Steed & Peel, and Rocketeer, I feel like you’re turning into “The Olde Timey Reboot” Guy… Are we going to see you tackling The Yellow Kid next?

Mark Waid: Annnnd there goes my career, ladies and gentlemen! It's been a good year, thanks for that! See ya! If anyone needs me, I'll be at the Springfield Retirement Castle watching my afternoon stories on the black-and-white Philco. Read More...

The big event of Saturday at Baltimore Comic-Con - and really, the whole weekend - was the Stan Lee spotlight panel, featuring John Romita, Sr., and moderated by The duly appointed King of Baltimore, Mark Waid. That’s like having all the crab-cakes you can eat, then discovering you have a second stomach! Baltimore, am I right? Okay, let’s get into this. Read More...

With Marvel Comics mostly sitting out Baltimore Comic-Con, it was up to Editor Tom Brevoort to hold down the fort, and hold court on everything coming up the next year as part of Marvel NOW! Luckily, he was also joind by writer Mark Waid for a lively discussion that - for those of us who write for comic book news sites - was not particularly full of news. But fun is good, too, right? Right. Yay for fun.

Not fun? Tech difficulties, which led to Brevoort joking that the art he wanted to show off was, “really good, but you’ll just have to trust me.” While Waid fiddled with the iPad, Brevoort plugged that "Avengers vs. X-Men" was finally 100% done, as of the previous night. Then he opened it up to questions! Read More...
