HEROESCON | Karl Kesel, Marcus Hamilton, And More Join Guest List!

That's right--it's spring, and people are starting to confirm left and right for this year's HeroesCon. All signs point to our biggest guest list ever, period, far and away, holy crud what a lot of people! But good gravy, this makes 12 people just this week! Returning to HeroesCon this summer will be Karl Kesel, known not only as a writer but as a prolific inker, and a frequent collaborator with the late great Mike Wieringo, not to mention fellow guests Mark Waid, Todd Dezago--the list goes on. From Fantastic Four to Daredevil to Spider-Man to Superman, there aren't many characters Karl hasn't had his inky fingers all over!

Also returning to the convention this summer is Dennis the Menace cartoonist Marcus Hamilton, who's always a popular guest, due not only to his exceptional talent, but his sweet, humble style! And that's not all--also new to our Guest List this week are inker Kris Justice (Agents of Atlas, X-Men: Deadly Genesis), Kaysha Siemens, Louis Small (Vampirella), and Andie Tong (Marvel U.K.'s Spectacular Spider-Man).

And that's still not all! I've looking at half a dozen names waiting to be announced next week, PLUS Shelton's down at MegaCon this weekend, and he's sure to bring back a double hatful of names himself--phew!

Karl Kesel's impecable inks are amongst my favorite in the industry, and his Kirby-infused run on Superboy with Tom Grummet are an underrated gem!

Am I correct in remembering that the last time he was here was for the Gorilla Comics launch?
