What does it take to create a new comic book? Find out at this amazing panel, where DC has assembled the entire creative team of a comic book, including the writer, penciller, and colorist! Learn how a new project is developed before the script is even written, and the many steps that happen after the artwork is complete, with the creative team behind Flash, Batman and Robin and Detective Comics – Brian Buccellato, Francis Manapul, Patrick Gleason, and Peter Tomasi.
