In early March, Dan DiDio will be interviewed in Woody Tanger auditorium by Christopher Iriving, who has written a history of comics (DATE TBA on this blog). Dan DiDio is a BC alum (’83). In 2010, he was named Co-Publisher partnering with acclaimed comics artist Jim Lee and spearheaded the company-wide initiative known as the New 52, in which DC’s entire line of comics have restarted with new number ones catapulting the line to higher sales than ever before. He has written a “Metal Men” strip for the anthology Wednesday Comics and is currently co-writing a Jack Kirby relaunch titled O.M.A.C. with writer-artist Keith Giffen.

Christopher Irving has written comic book history and journalism since 1997, helping to garner the “Best Comics Related Periodical” Eisner award for Comic Book Artist Magazine. His next book, Leaping Tall Buildings, is due out in April 2012.
