HEROESCON :: Screamland Creators Join Guest List!

That's right, America! Harold Sipe and Hector Casanova, the creators of forthcoming Image book Screamland, will be appearing at this year's Heroes Convention! The book is, from what I can tell, the story of some of the old Hollywood monsters and their declining fortunes in today's world. AND it's funny!

I'm pretty sure this is Harold's first comics work, although he's been instrumental developing comics for mobile phones with the Uclick/GoComics group of sites, AND is part of the enormous group of Kansas City comics creators, which includes fellow guests Matt Fraction and Tony Moore. Artist Hector Casanova has worked previously on The Lurkers with (another fellow guest--who isn't coming?) Steve Niles. I'm personally excited to welcome these guys, as Harold is an old friend and used to shop in the store once in a while--while he's been coming to the convention for years, this will be his first "official" appearance, which is really cool. Don' forget to check out Screamland when it comes out next month (I think)!
