HEROESCON :: Late-Breaking Guest Additions!

I'm in the middle of trying to put together the massive 64 page program book for HeroesCon 08 right now, plus beat a bunch of other print deadlines, so I HOPE YOU'LL PARDON THE BREVITY of this post. Most of you will welcome it! But I just hate to slight any of these EXCELLENT guests, who I will now unceremoniously announce. Lo, behold!

CHRIS BRUNNER, our old friend, and artist of the upcoming LOOSE ENDS from 12 Gauge, as well as on numerous books including THE RIDE and GOTHAM CENTRAL!

SEAN CHEN, returning champeen, member of theBLVD studio, and excellent draughtsman behind NOVA, WOLVERINE, and X-MEN: THE END!

SANFORD GREENE, who smiles a lot and giggles even more! And who is working now on the upcoming METHOD MAN GN, besides past work on Teen Titans, Army of Darkness, and more!

RICO RENZI, blistering colorist, proud papa, and printer extraordinaire. Also with credits on THE RIDE, GOTHAM CENTRAL, and 24/SEVEN!

MARK TEXEIRA, the smiling painter who always dashes into the Art Auction at the last minute, having just finished his submission on stage! Past artist of GHOST RIDER, WOLVERINE, and his own PSCYTHE!

Oh, and there's more less exciting news: joining the list of people forced to cancel their appearances at this year's HeroesCon is Greg Rucka and Jennifer Van Meter. Greg was super-apologetic, saying it was just unavoidable and it killed him. He assures us that they'll be back next year. Also heartthrob Dean Haspiel and Sean "Cheeks" Galloway. Sniff! We'll try to get these guys back in 09, for sure! For now, you can see an up-to-the-minute list of cancellations at the bottom of the "Recent Updates" list on our Guest List page.

Yay! Maybe there'll be another BLVD Studio party. That was a good time last year. Any band with a tuba player is alright in my book.
