Modern day versions of these DC Comics heroes appear on the CW each week, in DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, Arrow, and The Flash.
Cho is best known for his variant cover work on titles such as Marvel’s Civil War II, and his covers for DC’s graphic novel collections of Golden and Silver Age stories, such as the Flash, Justice League of America, Superman, Batman, and many more. He’s also the writer/illustrator of the graphic novel, Shoplifter, published by Pantheon in 2014. Michael will have a table in WonderCon’s Artists’ Alley this year, so make sure and stop by and get your book signed! Michael’s art will also be featured in an ad for the convention appearing in DC Comics publications during the month of March.

Producers from CBS’s upcoming summer series Under the Dome, based on the novel by Stephen King, took to the WonderCon stage Saturday night to give the crowd a taste of what to expect from the series, starring Mike Vogel, Dean Norris, and Rachelle Lefevre.
On the show, premiering June 24th, a small New England town is inexplicably cut off from the rest of the world by an enormous transparent dome, leaving the town to deal with both the larger implications of their new predicament (dwindling resources, how the heck it got there) and smaller, character-based conflicts (lovers are split, personalities clash). But there’s much more to it all. Check out 5 highlights from the panel, which included Norris, Lefevre, and executive producers Neal Baer (ER, Law & Order: SVU), Jack Bender (Lost, Alias) and Brian K. Vaughan, who also acts as showrunner for the series.
HERE is Entertainment Weekly’s write-up of the WonderCon Under The Dome on CBS Event.
