Hello everybody, and welcome to TSS’s second live blog for the Archie Creators Tell All Panel. Much like the last panel, we will both be covering it here, and recording it via HD camera. We don’t expect much in the way of new news today, and we suspect some of what’s said here may be derivative of what we’ve gotten in the interviews Selinka recorded yesterday, but what news that there will be at this panel, you will get here.
The Panel has started.
