As Neil Diamond would say, Holly Holy Night! Just added to our HeroesCon 2008 Guest List is power couple Greg Rucka and Jennifer Van Meter. Greg you may remember from a low-profile project at DC called 52, not to mention his own Queen & Country and Whiteout (which I hear is being or has been made into a movie) at Oni Press, or Wolverine at Marvel, among dozens of others. Seriously, go check out his website; I'd forgotten just how many titles he's been involved with over the last few years. Crazy! Ms Van Meter is no slouch either, writing the upcoming Black Lightning: Year One (with art by our buddy Cully Hamner), as well as JSA Classified, and the popular Hopeless Savages series from Oni Press!
Not only are we excited to welcome these two writers--welcome back, in Greg's case--but we're moving steadily toward our goal of having every one of comics' working couples in attendance at the show. Seriously, this is just from scanning the list:
Evan Dorkin/Sarah Dyer
Matt Fraction/Kelly Sue DeConnick
Jimmy Palmiotti/Amanda Connor
Steve Niles/Sarah Wilkinson
Adam Hughes/Allison Sohn
Stuart & Kathryn Immonen
That's SEVEN couples! Love is in the air at Heroes this year--we should have a big dance or something. Hmm...
