HeroesCon Guest List Addition :: Robert Kirkman, Anyone?


Gosh, it's been like weeks since we made a guest-list update hasn't it? Never fear, loyal blog readers: we've just been saving up for you. So today we're not announcing one or two but seven new names on our guest list, including Ryan Rubio and Thomas Boatwright of Cemetery Blues, painter extraordinaire Cat Staggs, writer and editor Dan Johnson, and Indie Island additions Duane Ballenger and Pat Lewis, both of which can be found in the Wide Awake 666 anthology from Greenville, SC's Wide Awake Press. Heckfire, Pat's even got a new book coming out from IDW:
The Claws Come Out!

Wait, that's only six, isn't it--oh yeah, I nearly forgot! Just confirmed this very morning is Invincible and Walking Dead co-creator Robert Kirkman! One of the most prolific creators in comics, Robert Kirkman has written more comics in his relatively short career than some of you have read, including also Ultimate X-Men, Marvel Zombies, Brit, Battle Pope--well, I could go on all day. Just more proof that our 2008 HeroesCon is going to be our biggest ever! And there are more announcements around the corner, so don't let that excitement die down just yet, sports fans!

If Heroes Con were a leg. And I were a dog...
(You can figure the rest out...)

Thomas Boatwright and Dwight MacPherson together again. Yay! Now I can get my copy of Edgar Allen Poo signed by both of them.

The first comic I ever bought at Heroes Aren't Hard To Find was Walking Dead #1.

I think I might cry now.

Sweet catch. I'll have to get him to sign my sister's copies of Walking Dead.

If I were Daniel Von Egidy, landing Robert Kirkman would go decidedly in my "Sweet" column.

Will there be a panel involving Kirkman?
