HEROESCON :: Guest List Update!

What, already? Things aren't slowing down, and the number of e-mails in my box each morning concerning the show seems to double every week. New today on the HeroesCon 2008 Guest List are returning guests Christian Beranek--co-founder of Silent Devil Studios and writer behind Se7en: Lust and Willow Creek from Zenescope--and Clay & Susan Griffith, the husband-and-wife writing team behind It Came From Beneath The Sea... Again and issues of The Tick.

And attending his very first HeroesCon this summer is Jason Howard, artist behind The Astounding Wolf-Man, written by fellow guest Robert Kirkman! Be sure and make all of these creators welcome this June--and stay tuned for ANOTHER big announcement late this week for Indie Island! I don't want to go into details yet, but let's just say that fans of Canada will be excited...

Oh goodness me, could it be Bryan Lee O'Malley?

Dustin Harbin said...

I'll give you another clue: the letters of his name can be rearranged to spell "I too like to play dangerously, Mr. Bond."

Should I get excited?

And yes, there are fans of Canada! I'm one of 'em!

I too, am a lover of Canadians, Canada, and especially the idea of socialized medicine. In fact, in response to the (no doubt unintentional) slight by Rusty to Canada, I'd like to publish here the first verse of the Canadian national anthem, "O Canada":

O Canada!
Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!
From far and wide, O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

Yes, for THEE, Canada. You may find out more about this gem of antheming, including a translation of the thrilling French verse ("Thy history is an epic of the most brilliant exploits...") here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/O_Canada

You know who else is Canadian? Wolverine! Man, he's awesome...so grim 'n' gritty! He's the best there is at what he does! But, unfortunately for those who cross him, what he does isn't very nice.

I wish he was in more comics.

For the first person who can tell me (without going to wikipedia)from what Opera Canada stole that beautiful melody, I will buy them a comic book next Wednesday.
