HEROESCON :: Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Connor Join Guest List!

Whoa! Comics power-couple Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Connor are two of the most prolific creators working in comics, not to mention two of the most popular guests at conventions. Most of the stories I hear from shows end with, "...and then Jimmy showed up and laughter ensued..." Jimmy's an old buddy of Shelton's too, but it's been SO long since he's been to HeroesCon, so we're pretty jazzed to have him and Amanda next summer! Shelton got to hang out with them some on his trip to NYC last weekend, where he bulldogged them into being part of the HeroesCon 08 Guest List.

You're probably well aware of their extensive resumes, but just in case: Jimmy is associated with, I think, all the comics out there, but most recently he's worked on Jonah Hex, Countdown, and the upcoming Terra miniseries. Besides that, he's also written for numerous TV shows, including Painkiller Jane, which he created with Joe Quesada. Amanda is the artist behind The Pro, the Power Girl origin in JSA Classified, and the upcoming Terra, as well as a gajillion of others stretching all the way back to the late 80's. This is one prolific pair, so fans of theirs may need to load up a special dolly for all the books they'll need to get autographed.

Keep your eyes peeled for more announcements after the Thanksgiving holiday, as Shelton was a busy beaver in NYC last weekend!

You know, not everything is about your relationship with Rusty, Daniel. Can't we celebrate Jimmy and Amanda's appearance without delving into your personal life? Sheesh.
