Animation Maven Greg Weisman Talks YOUNG JUSTICE, SPIDEY, MORE at LBCC

The co-creator of Gargoyles and producer of shows like Spectacular Spider-Man, Young Justice and, oh, STAR WARS: REBELS, will be all over Long Beach Comic Con.


“This is my second time coming to LBCC, and I always have a blast,” Weisman told us. “Because it’s within shooting distance of the industry, we’ve been able to put together some pretty impressive lineups for panels on Gargoyles, Young Justice, The Spectacular Spider-Man, the Disney Afternoon and Rain of the Ghosts!”

One thing he can’t talk about right now is Star Wars: Rebels, but so what — TONS of great stuff in his panel line-up. Check him out if you’re on the West Coast, or planning to be, 9/27. (The show is also on 9/28).
