Comic books often have [[SugarWiki/AndTheFandomRejoiced large announcements]] to create excitement, especially when someone famous is hired to write or draw a story.

[[folder:DC Comics]]
* Gail Simone being named as the writer for ''Franchise/WonderWoman''.
** "Gail's off the book now? Dammit... oh, well, [[IncrediblyLamePun wonder]] who the new writer's gonna be? ''Creator/JMichaelStraczynski?'' YES!"[[note]]This, however, was undone by the actual story he wrote...[[/note]]
** DC is going to put out a new digital comic about Wonder Woman called "Sensation Comics." And the writer of the first story arc...GAIL SIMONE. And, wait, hold on, the preview mentions "Oracle," so it must take place pre-New 52!
* ''Franchise/{{Batman}}: The Return of Bruce Wayne''. Batman, fighting his way through ''all of history'', with the first edition being illustrated by [[BadassBeard Chris Sprouse]] and written by Creator/GrantMorrison. Epic. Win.
* The existence of the Jason Rusch run of ''ComicBook/{{Firestorm}}'' was full of these, having reappearances by the supporting cast of the Ronnie Raymond days, including: Firehawk, Pohzar/Mikhail Arkadin, and several of the original Firestorm villains (Killer Frost, Multiplex, Typhoon, even Cliff "Thinker" Carmichael). Raymond even came back from the dead in a story arc, and eventually Rusch would be joined by Martin Stein himself to form Firestorm. In one issue, Rusch even makes a veiled fourth wall reference to the fandom rejoicing in his book, as he comments about how he fashioned his costume to look more like the "classic" Firestorm design.
* The [[MilestoneComics Milestone Characters]] becoming integrated into DC Canon.
* Okay, so DC is putting out one last issue of several long-cancelled titles to "resurrect them" as a tie-in to BlackestNight. Sounds like a crossover stunt to- HOLY SHIT OSTRANDER AND SIMONE ARE WORKING TOGETHER ON A ComicBook/{{SECRET SIX}}[=/=]ComicBook/{{SUICIDE SQUAD}} TEAM-UP AND O'NEIL AND COWAN ARE DOING {{THE QUESTION}}!
* Oh [[TheFlash Bart Allen]] is back... AND HE'S BACK TO HIS OLD PERSONALITY?!
* Man I miss the DCAU.. wait.. ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' will be integrated into the DC canon '''and''' [[StaticShock Static is getting]] [[Comicbook/{{Static}} a new comic]]....[[{{Squee}} Excuse me for a moment, I'll be right back after geeking out]]!!!
** Yeah... except the former is being written by Adam Beechen, aka the guy who derailed Cassandra Cain. Still, he was a great animation writer so this may actually be up his alley.
* Many [[ComicBook/{{Batgirl 2000}} Cassandra Cain]] fans were rejoicing when she returned in ''Batman Incorporated'' #6 as '''Blackbat'''!
** Even moreso since before that, [[SuperDickery it looked like she had gone evil again and was going to fight Tim in an issue of Red Robin.]] THEN it was announced she would play a part in the Gates of Gotham mini. The second issue even teams her up with Damian!
* Recent news of the massive reboot of the DCUniverse has been met with [[BrokenBase predictable reactions]], but there are a few things that couldn't get more warmth:
** BlueBeetle getting new ongoing!
** ResurrectionMan series written by his original creators, Creator/DanAbnett and Andy Lanning of Comicbook/{{Nova}} and GuardiansOfTheGalaxy fame!
** Demon Knights - {{Etrigan}} series in the Middle Ages, by Creator/PaulCornell? [[IncrediblyLamePun Hell yes]]!
** [[SevenSoldiers Frankenstein]]: [[ComicBook/FrankensteinAgentOfShade Agent Of S.H.A.D.E.]]!
** Comicbook/{{Aquaman}} is getting a new ongoing series written by {{Geoff Johns}} and drawn by Ivan Reis, the team behind ''Green Lantern: Secret Origin''.
** Creator/{{GRANT MORRISON}} IS WRITING ACTION COMICS!!!!
** [[WritingForTheTrade The six-issue arc format]] is no longer being enforced. Writers now have the freedom to decide the length of their own stories, they no longer have to [[DecompressedComic pad out four issues of story to fill six issues.]]
** The realization that Eric Wallace's run on ''[[ComicBook/TeenTitans Titans]]'' is going to be cancelled after August's issue, a run that immediately got off to the wrong start with the death of Ryan Choi and proceeded to get worse as it went on.
** James Robinson's writing a 12-issue series focused on [[Comicbook/{{Starman}} The Shade]]! Woopwoopwoopwoop!
** TheAtom being on the Justice League was met with a fairly average response, until at San Diego Comic Con, Jim Lee dropped ''strong'' hints that it's Ryan Choi ([[DroppedABridgeOnHim who many feel was unjustly killed at the start of the aforementioned Titans book]]) behind the mask...
** Creator/ScottSnyder on Franchise/{{Batman}}!! Kyle Higgins on Nightwing!!
** Comicbook/AnimalMan and Comicbook/SwampThing getting their own ongoings? Yes! They quickly turn out to be among the best series of the entire relaunch? Duoble yes!
** So far, averted with former Batgirls Cassandra Cain and Stephanie Brown, former Flash Wally West, and Donna Troy.
* An issue of The All New WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold with all the Robins, including Stephanie and [[Comcibook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns Carrie]]? Yes!
** Stephanie Brown's Batman Inc issue will be in Leviathan Strikes, by Creator/GrantMorrisson and Cameron Stewart!
** Stephanie Brown is BATGIRL IN LEVIATHAN STRIKES!
* ''ComicBook/TheSandman'' prequel, by Creator/NeilGaiman, with JH Williams doing the art for the 25th anniversary in 2013.
* There's going to be a New 52 Earth 2? Let's just see how they manage to screw it up.... They got James Robinson to write it?! And it features completely different origins for the heroes?!
** Earth2 was great, but now James is leaving it, it's going to crash and.....TOM TAYLOR!
*** Yeah, but still not so sur...wait, Nicola Scott is staying on?! Okay!
* Hmm, TrinityWar is neat so far, and Forever Evil looks decent, but how can they really....The CRIME SYNDICATE OF AMERICA!? ULTRAMAN, OWLMAN, SUPERWOMAN, POWERRING AND....DEATHSTORM!? Lex and Ultraman in battle....or Black Adam and Ultra Man....DC TAKE MY MONEY!
* Man, the Superman titles haven't been doing all that well (Bar Morrison run Action Comics), it says something when Lobdell is the best writer in the family. Wait, a Superman title done by ScottSynder!? Nice, but it seems to be sort of on its own, so does that really.....GREG PAK IS WRITING A BATMAN-SUPERMAN SERIES, AND ACTION COMICS!? The WorldWarHulk writer on Superman.....YAY!
** Now that Scott Lobdell is gone with the main Superman title, I just hope that they get anyone better to- '''GEOFF JOHNS IS THE NEW WRITER?!?''' Yes!
* The New 52 is still missing a ton of characters, and the fans won't be happy until they all appear, but with all the changes can they even all....Wait, who was LexLuthor talking to in Forever evil...[[ComicBook/BlueBeetle Thomas Kord, the father of Ted Kord?]], and written by Geoff Johns, the Silver age Lover....This is promising, very promising.
** Better yet, Johns [[spoiler:confirms that Ted Kord is coming back!]]
* Ah, New York Comic Con; a perfect time to find out little tidbits that just get the fans to rejoice, wonder what gets posted first.....a weekly Batman title? Okay, there is such thing as too much Batman you know.....wait, did Snyder just say [[spoiler:Stephanie Brown]]!?!?
* So, the Flash is getting a creative team that is on par with his old one? Nice, but what sort of things will be put on the table....[[spoiler:W...Wally West is returning!]]
* You know, Green Lantern was so good, particularly the last issue under Geoff Johns, however I wonder if we are ever going to see any of this fu.....Wait, we'll see the fabled Jessica Cruz in Justice League? And she'll have Power Ring's ring!?

[[folder: Marvel Comics]]
* When Brian K. Vaughan announced his departure from ''Comicbook/{{Runaways}}'', there was much speculation as to who the "worthy replacement" he promised could possibly be. It turned out to be Creator/JossWhedon. Unfortunately, Whedon's ''Runaways'' arc was not terribly popular with fans. But at the time, it sure shut up complaints. His replacement Terry Moore on the other hand was more of a WTHCastingAgency moment, though.
** and yet again with Kathryn Immonen (writer of the Hellcat mini)
* The disastrous CrisisCrossover event, ''{{Ultimatum}}'', caused many fans to quit UltimateMarvel until Marvel announced an Ultimate ''ComicBook/IronMan'' miniseries, written by WarrenEllis and an ''Ultimate Avengers'' series written by Mark Millar.
* ''Amazing Spider-Man'' #611 will feature a showdown between ComicBook/SpiderMan and ''{{Deadpool}}''. A showdown that will, apparently, degrade into "Yo Mamma-geddon". And it's being written by Joe Kelly.
* God, I hate Carly, yet Quesada keeps insisting that she's Spider-Man's perfect girlfriend. Good grief when is this ever going to... wait? [[ComicBook/SpiderIsland Carly broke up with Spidey]]? Woo-hoo! The MJ train is back on track!
* TheSentry, a GodModeSue who gets NewPowersAsThePlotDemands is killed during ''MarvelSiege''. What's funny is that everyone in the Marvel U is sad because they [[BlackHoleSue all loved him]], and most fans couldn't stop dancing on his grave.
** Made even better by the ending of the miniseries itself.
--> '''CaptainAmerica (implied to be talking with BarackObama):''' ''"But... I'm going to want to do it my way."''
--> (next page) '''SUPERHUMAN REGISTRATION ACT THROWN OUT - Steve Rogers AKA Captain America replaces Norman Osborn as America's Top Cop'''
--> (final panel) '''CaptainAmerica:''' ''"... because I'm going to need [[ComicBook/TheAvengers all of you]] for what comes next."''
* [[Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja Chris Hastings]] is going to be the writer of a new ''{{Deadpool}}'' miniseries. [[CrazyAwesome We can only dream of what will ensue.]]
* For [[XForce Uncanny X Force]], Psylocke, Deadpool and Fantomex join the team. And the team will eventually go into the ComicBook/AgeOfApocalypse universe? Hell yeah!
* Marvel is [[http://blog.newsarama.com/2011/06/03/brevoort-marvelman-is-still-coming-honest/ FINALLY getting around to publishing]] the Creator/AlanMoore and Creator/NeilGaiman ComicBook/MiracleMan stories? About damn time. . . wait a minute, they're getting Neil Gaiman to come back and finish his story arc?! Surely a MomentofAwesome for Marvel.
* The announcement that Creator/BrianMichaelBendis will be wrapping up the Avengers story he's building up at 2012 AND retiring his position as the head writer are met with much rejoicing.
* Creator/EdBrubaker resurrecting Bucky (one time sidekick to ComicBook/CaptainAmerica) was so popular, that news of his death in the pages of ''ComicBook/FearItself'' angered fans. That anger turned into rejoicing after it was revealed in a post-event comic that Bucky [[FakingTheDead didn't die]] and that he's going to star in a "Winter Soldier" on-going written by Brubaker starting in January 2012.
* ''WesternAnimation/AvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' fans lamented the show getting canceled before ScarletWitch and {{Quicksilver}} could become Avengers, or even guest star. Fortunately, one issue of [[ComicBook/AvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes the comics]] has them.
* As for ''ComicBook/TheAvengers'', there's ''Avengers: ComicBook/TheChildrensCrusade''. Full stop. Basically a series that exists simply to outright overturn the much hated "Avengers Disassembled" storyline as well as allowing Allan Heinberg to finish the storylines he was banned from doing in Young Avengers (confirming Wiccan and Speed as Scarlet Witch and Vision's kids and bringing back Scott Lang, which was foreshadowed at the end of Heinberg's first Young Avengers arc).
* Dan Slott taking over "Mighty Avengers".
* Creator/WarrenEllis' brief run on ''ComicBook/SecretAvengers'', which was basically ''ComicBook/GlobalFrequency'' Volume 2.
* Writers under Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso seem to be making a habit of tacitly undoing many of the more unpopular creative decisions made by Alonso's predecessor JoeQuesada. We have ''Children's Crusade'' and the end of Bendis's ''Avengers'' mentioned above, as well as ''Spider Island'' in which, in addition to the aforementioned breakup with Carlie, the [[AWizardDidIt magic spell that prevented anyone from learning Peter's identity]] is undone and Mary Jane admits she's still in love with Peter (although not to his face, unfortunately) after she of all characters had been repeatedly used as a ShipperOnDeck for Peter and Carlie. As well, ''Comicbook/AvengersVsXMen'' issue 9 torpedoes [[spoiler:the [[StrangledByTheRedString much-maligned]] ComicBook/BlackPanther[=/=]ComicBook/{{Storm}} [[TokenRomance marriage]]]] with a single throwaway line, and {{foreshadowing}} within the same storyline seems to indicate that [[ComicBook/HouseOfM the Decimation]] and possibly the Cyclops/White Queen relationship may be on their way out, too.
** ''Consequences'', the Post-AVX mini, exploring Cyclops' side in the whole situation, setting up a new StatusQuo for him, and basically establish that he really wasn't a villain, but a victim of circumstance? YES! Wolverine gets called out on his hypocritical bullshit? Double YES!
* When it was announced that Kieron Gillen was leaving ''JourneyIntoMystery'' come October 2012, there was much fear that [[BreakoutCharacter Kid Loki]] was finally going to die and that the status quo would be unfortunately restored. However, previews for Marvel NOW show that Gillen will be writing a story with Kid Loki, Wiccan, and Miss America. Then [[http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=41352 this]] came out and showed that perhaps Kid Loki's adventures are [[YoungAvengers not quite over yet]]...
** And then "Journey into Mystery" #645 came out...and there much less rejoicing after that.
*** And then issue #1 came out and the fandom rejoiced all over again!
* {{Hawkeye}} getting his own Ongoing? Written by Matt Fraction and art by David Aja? OK, that's pretty cool but-*Reads first few issues* Marvel take my money now!
** And Kate Bishop, the second Hawkeye is basically a second lead character? And she's getting an annual focusing on her?! Take even more of my money!
* ''SecretAvengers'' coming to an end? That sucks-wait, its being relaunched, and will add Phil Coulson, Daisy Johnson, Mockingbird, and Taskmaster to the team!? So what if the story behind the team doesn't sound great, its got Taskmaster!
** Wait, they're actually getting consent to suppress the team's memories of the missions, and they still feel bad about it? Sold!
* ''A+X'' isn't really notable, though fairly enjoyable, besides being a team up book that has a rotating artist and writer for every issue...then they announced they were going to do a multiple part story. OK, that doesn't sound too...The story is going to be about Captain America and Cyclops teaming up, meaning that they may finally resolve their differences? Fuck. Yes.
* Marvel released a teaser for their post-''Infinity'' status quo. Pfft, they did that for MarvelNow, so what....is that....[[spoiler: is that The Amazing Spider-Man? No, I mean ''The'' '''Amazing''' Spider-Man? He's back? You gotta be... Is that '''[[EnsembleDarkhorse Nightcrawler]]'''? Two of Marvel's most popular characters are comic back after being killed off?]] Ladies, Gentlemen, we can officially {{Squee}}.
* Oh man, Marvel Now is so obviously movie (And Superior) dominated it is sort of sicken....wait, a series of all X-Men girls? Hmm, sort of gimm...BrianWood?! Better, though Storm's still in that weird new...[[spoiler: JUBILEE! SHE'S BACK!!]]
* Battle of the Atom.... another event!? Sure, its not taking over ALL the books, but its written by Bendis and Aaron....yuck, there is no way that can be any good. X-Men from the future... hasn't that been done to death... and what the hell with some of these guys; Deadpool isn't an X-Men, Beast's redesign is hideous, and no one really likes him at the moment, an Ice Hulk is the worse idea for a character since Red H... wait, one of the future X-Men is [[EnsembleDarkhorse Molly]] [[BadassAdorable Hayes]], and SheIsAllGrownUp! Maybe it might be a decent read.
* Now for Marvel Comic Con 2013, what sort of interesting stuff are we getting on the other side...blah blah Inhumans, blah blah Avengers, blah blah [[spoiler:She Hulk ongoing and Ghost Rider in the Thunderbolts]]... wait, what was that last one!?
* Oh, look, more Marvel NOW! releases... wait, [[UnexpectedCharacter Doop]] is getting a series?! And... [[spoiler:PETER PARKER'S BACK IN CONTROL?! NO MORE ''ComicBook/SuperiorSpiderMan''?!]]
** [[spoiler: But, the fans who like both Amazing and Superior can possibly have their cake and eat it, too! It looks like PETER DAVID is taking over Superior Spider-Man!]]
** ComicBook/SpiderMan2099. Ongoing. Peter. David. Must. Buy.
** After so much time, Carlie Cooper has ''finally'' been PutOnABus!!
** Spider-Man is cool, [[SpiderMen two Spider-Men are cooler]], [[SpiderManShatteredDimensions four Spider-Men are even cooler]], but do you know what's the coolest? '''[[http://www.comicbookresources.com/prev_img.php?pid=18384&disp=ilib&oty=1&oid=51683 EVERY!]]''' '''[[ComicBook/{{SpiderVerse}} SPIDER-]]''''''[[ContinuityPorn MAN!]]''' '''[[{{HSQ}} EVER!]]'''
* Cyclops and Storm receiving their own solo series? Enough said.
* Christopher Yost and Craig Kyle are taking over ''ComicBook/AmazingXMen''? [[/folder]]


[[folder:IDW]]

[[folder:Other Comics]]
* The facts were these. ''Series/PushingDaisies'' had met [[ScrewedByTheNetwork an unfortunate demise at the hands of an apathetic network after suffering in its first season thanks to the writer's strike]], meaning that the much awaited Ned vs. zombies plotline would indeed never happen and many loose threads would, alas, remain lose. But then, as though gifted with the piemaker's touch, Warner Brothers production company resurrected the program by gaving the okay to one Creator/BryanFuller to recruit three of the show's other writers to continue the story in comic form, and series composer Jim Dooley to release a companion soundtrack. Said books are due to be released sometime this year. At this very moment, nine million, four-hundred and sixty thousand nerds are punching their fists in the air.
* Thanks to ArchieComics, we have this: [[SonicTheHedgehog Sonic]] and [[VideoGame/MegaMan Mega Man]] [[IntercontinuityCrossover crossing over]]. [[PunctuatedForEmphasis For. The. First. Time.]]
* RuleSixtyThree '''Archie'''?! Done by Gisele Lagace?!![[note]]known for ''Webcomic/MenageA3'', ''Webcomic/PennyAndAggie'', ''Webcomic/MagickChicks'', and ''Webcomic/EerieCuties''[[/note]] and guest starring ComicBook/{{Sabrina|TheTeenageWitch}}?! [[http://scans-daily.dreamwidth.org/3914239.html Strange things happenin' in Riverdale...]]
** If you told someone a few years ago that Archie would make a comic about zombies they'd laugh. Not so much now that ComicBook/AfterlifeWithArchie is a thing.
** Sabrina is back and she's darker than ever, thanks to the 2014 comics. Even Sabrina having a bob again in her Archie cameos (after years of swaying styles) made fans hyped
* Many fans of the TV show ''Series/{{Heroes}}'' were pleased with [[http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=46660 this]] announcement.
