It would appear that FanExpo11 is James Robinson’s own personal comic book convention.
In addition to the news that Robinson will be handling the writing duties on a new on-going Justice Society of America series, DC Comics has also announced some of the artists that will be working with him on the 12 issue mini-series, The Shade, which begins in October.
Joining Robinson to tell tales from the life of The Shade will be artists Gene Ha, Darwyn Cooke, and Jill Thompson. Cooke will be drawing an issue set during World War II, and Thompson will be drawing The Shade #8 which will be set in Paris during the turn of the 20th century. Over on their blog, The Source, DC posted a sample of Jill Thompson art which you can see to the right.
The Shade is the popular supporting character of dubious motivation from Robinson’s acclaimed series Starman that ran from October 1994 to August 2001.
