HEROESCON :: Don Rosa, Jamal Igle And More Join Guest List!

The addition to the HeroesCon 09 Guest List are coming fast and furious, and it looks like we're going to have a well and truly packed house this year once more! New to the Guest List today is legendary "Duck" artist Don Rosa, whose The Life And Times of Uncle Scrooge has sold through a bajillion printings and reinvigorated a whole generation's interest in Scrooge, Donald, and the whole Disney duck-universe. We're super excited to welcome Don back to HeroesCon this year; if you've never met him, he's like a character out of one of his own books!

ALSO new this week is another old buddy, the talented Jamal Igle. Jamal has worked on a bajillion books over the years including Teen Titans, Nightwing, Green Lantern Corps and more--but most recently you cna catch him on DC's Supergirl! But wait that's STILL not all! Also new this week are three more returning guests:

GENE GONZALES has been to practically every HeroesCon over the past 15 years or so--he was pretty upset about having to miss last year's massive show, so we hope you'll join us in giving him a warm welcome back. Most recently you can read his work in Diary of Night and Tales of the Cherokee.

JOE PEKAR has been doing a ton of comics covers lately, for titles including Grimm Fairy Tales and Hexed. He's also released his own art book, Strawberry, through BrandStudio Press.

CAT STAGGS is a titan (titaness? what do you call a lady-titan?) on the trading card scene, with work in sets including Star Wars Galaxy 4, X-Men Archives, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings, and more. I like "Lady-Titan," I think.

Okay, still more to come! I TOLD you I had a stack of announcements to make--except it's GROWING, not shrinking!

So when is Heroes going to get on Twitter? Would love to get Con updates and other news that way as well.
