Alright! I told you we were going to have a ridiculous list of special guests for this year's Free Comic Book Day, and I'm here to back that up. In case you can't see the sweet flyer I just finished above, the list of special guests signing autographs and doing FREE sketches from 1-5pm on Saturday, May 3rd will include:
SHAWN CRYSTAL (BloodRed)
IAN FLYNN (Sonic the Hedgehog)
SANFORD GREENE (Method Man GN)
CULLY HAMNER (Blue Beetle)
JASON LATOUR (The Expatriate)
CHRIS SCHWEIZER (Crogan's Vengeance)
TONY SHASTEEN (O.C.T.)
BRIAN STELFREEZE (The Ride: Die Valkyrie)
ETHAN VAN SCIVER (Justice League of America)
DOUG WAGNER (The Ride)
and MATT BRADY of Newsarama.com!
What?! Am I kidding you? No, friends--I am not kidding. This is going to be huge. And Todd informs me that we have over TWELVE THOUSAND comics to give away, although we're going to try and limit it, as in past years, to one of everything per person--depending of course, on whether you're old enough for some books. We like to give these books away throughout the year, too--it's just how we roll, dawg. See you next Saturday: doors open at 10am, and the signing/sketching goes from 1-5pm.
EDIT: Belying the fab flyer art, Mark Brooks actually won't be able to make it to the celebration due to a scheduling conflict--so you'll have to save your Brooks-ian enthusiasm for HeroesCon! But there'll still be stars a-plenty, including late addition JASON LATOUR, artist of the acclaimed The Expatriate!
UPDATE! As I repost, we are PACKED with people. Matt Brady of Newsarama is live-blogging next to me (which you can check out here), humbling my own efforts. Shelton is giving Brian Stelfreeze directions from 85, and all systems are go! Bring it on if you're planning on enjoying Free Comic Book Day with us!
