HEROESCON :: Begin Your Weekend With These Fresh Flavors!

Well heckfire--after last week's hurly-burly update-per-day pace, it seems downright sedentary to only make two updates to the HeroesCon 09 Guest List this week. On the other hand, between the two of them, they total 18 people! I'm going to make this quick, as I still have to get the Heroes Hotline sent AND print up a bunch of Free Comic Book Day flyers to take around town over the weekend. It IS, after all, a week from tomorrow!

But for now, CHECK OUT these SWEET PEEPS:

ERIC CANETE is the artist behind books like the hit End League, Iron Man: Enter the Mandarin, and a ton of others, including design and storyboard work on the Ben 10 Cartoon Network show. Be sure and welcome Eric to his first HeroesCon!

OTIS FRAMPTON is the creator of the Oddly Normal series of graphic novels, as well as the non-Marc-Deering half of a podcasting team!

CHRIS GIARRUSSO is no stranger to HeroesCon attendees, attending I think his 3rd or 4th this year. You probably know Chris from his several Mini Marvels books for Marvel Comics, as well as his own G-Man!

JASON LATOUR lives in our very neighborhood--when you're not catching him browsing the rack on Wednesday afternoons, you can catch him as the artist on The Expatriate, as well as the writer of the upcoming Loose Ends!

BUDD ROOT is practically in our neighborhood, and another frequent Wednesday visitor to the shop. He's also the creator of the cult-favorite Cavewoman series!

GREGG SCHIGIEL is also returning to HeroesCon this year. Besides working on What If? and Disney Adventures Magazine, Gregg is also the writer and artist of the Spongebob Squarepants comic in Nickelodeon Magazine!

Also joining the list today are our buddies in Tsunami Studios--there are a few more Tsunami-ers still to confirm, but I thought I'd point out these guys. And they're located right here in good ole North Carolina to boot! Ah, my home state... Oh! Anyway:

STEVE BIRD has worked on a ton of books, including Robin, Resurrection of Ra's Al Ghul, Blue Beetle, and Hard Time.

RICK KETCHAM is a name synonymous with quality, inking all over the place for all the major publishers. Recent work includes Runaways, GI Joe, Robin, and The Dresden Files!

ERIC LAYTON, a force to be reckoned with, has worked on Hexen Hammers, GI Joe, Kyle XY, Ex Machina, and more!

Last but not least, JOHN "WAKI" WYCOUGH is known for his work on GI Joe, Transformers, Dr Who, and a ton of others. Be sure and welcome Tsunami back to HeroesCon!

And have a great weekend!
