You know, we say it every year, but it's mainly because each year the HeroesCon Guest List is bigger than the one before. Not the worst problem in the world to have (unless you have to figure out where to put everybody AND all the people that show up to meet them). With a guest list that already--and still more than 7 months out--boasts names like Brian Bendis, Ed Brubaker, Matt Fraction, Jeff Smith, and more--we just can't help adding more names. And though it's still early, the names have been piling up on my desk, as I keep alluding to each week.
I've got a bunch of additions lined up, but I promised myself that TODAY, by gum, I would get at least two of them done. And so it is with great glee and a small sense of accomplishment that I announce the addition of two real sweet guys: Ivan Brandon and Joe Staton.
Young, scrappy, and multilingual, Ivan Brandon is the writer behind Secret Invasion: Home Invasion, Machine Man, and The Cross Bronx, among others. AND he most recently was the translator of the much-talked about Mesmo Delivery Service from AdHouse Books.
No stranger to HeroesCon, our old chum Joe Staton has worked all over the comics industry on a multitude of different books (and in a multitude of styles), including E-Man, Green Lantern, and Scooby Doo. Joe is one of the nicest guys you could meet--that's not saying a lot at HeroesCon, but Joe is a prince among nice guys, trust us. If you've never met Joe or Ivan, we will charge you a nominal fee to meet them--and a few hundred others--this June at HeroesCon! More updates on the way!
