HEROESCON :: Guest List Grows By "Magnificent Seven"
It seems like lately I spend my entire day coding additions into our HeroesCon 09 Guest List, not to mention writing these breathless blog posts. But how in the WORLD can I not sound breathless when announcing these seven guys all at once?! Each of these guys is a member of our little (growing) HeroesCon "family", and each deserves their own announcement, but the crazy number of guests we have this year demands speed! So without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, may I present:
MARK BROOKS' star continues to rise, with interiors in books including Amazing Spider-Man, Dark Reign: Young Avengers, and covers all over the place!
Besides co-creating Perhapanauts (with Craig Rousseau) and Tellos (with Mike Wieringo, TODD DEZAGO has also written for Marvel Adventures: Spider-Man, Impulse, JLA, and many more!
CRAIG HAMILTON is preposterously popular artist, both within and without comics circles. Look for upcoming work from him in Fables, as well as past work in Sandman, Starman, and more!
GEORGES JEANTY's bio lately reads "Buffy, Buffy, Buffy"--Georges is the artist of the cult-favorite Buffy The Vampire Slayer comic series. He's also recently done covers for Nightwing and Manhunter stories for DC Comics!
PHIL NOTO has one of the most recognizable styles in comics, most recently on display in Superman/Supergirl: Maelstrom, Infinite Horizon, Jonah Hex, and many more!
JASON PEARSON has long been a fixture at our show, and is probably best known for his creator-owned series Body Bags, which recently saw the publication of a new story in Body Bags: One Shot. Jason also is a prolific cover artist, often associated with Spider-Man.
Last but not least, DEXTER VINES is one of the most sought-after inkers in the industry, often working on high-profile "event" comics like Civil War and the recent white-hot Wolverine "Old Man Logan" story. He's probably most closely associated with penciller Ed McGuinness, especially for their work on Superman Batman and The Hulk.
Whew! Okay, more to come--tomorrow we'll be announcing a slew of all-ages artists and writers, and later in the week a big publisher announcement!
