HEROESCON :: Mark Texeira, Brian Pulido, And More Join Guest List!

Today is Friday, and marks the fifth consecutive day this week that we've posted a GIANT addition to our HeroesCon 09 Guest List--and we're going out with a bang this week, with EIGHT new names!

MARK TEXEIRA is no stranger to HeroesCon, and one of our most popular guests. Heck, half the time when we can't find staff members, they're in the office listening to "Tex" tell stories while he works on someone's drawing! And his entrances to our Annual Art Auction, usually with the paint still drying on a piece he'd just finished onstage, are always dramatic! If you've never met Tex before, you've probably read some of his comics, including Ghost Rider, Moon Knight, Black Panther, and many more.

Also new to the list today is returning guest BRIAN PULIDO, the co-creator of Lady Death and founder of Chaos! Comics. Brian has recently been working in movies, having just written and directed The Graves. He'll be premiering an exclusive Lady Death HeroesCon variant for you collectors!

And that's just the start of this addition! G.W. FISHER returns to HeroesCon this year, with recent work on Shadowhawk and Intimidators!

TOM FLEMING is a prolific painter and regular guest of ours, with work in magazines like Heavy Metal and Vampirella Quarterly, and illustrations for World of Warcraft and numberous card sets!

LEO LEIBELMAN is attending his first HeroesCon this year. He's worked in illustration and art for years, with work in Heavy Metal, Savage Sword of Conan, Turok, and more!

STUART SAYGER is the creator of the Shiver In The Dark graphic novel, as well as a ton of Vs Card System cards, and Lego Bionicle production art!

STEVE SCOTT is attending his second HeroesCon this year--his recent work includes X-Men Forever and She-Hulk, as well as Marvel Adventures Hulk and Marvel Adventures Avengers!

LOUIS SMALL JR is another fixture at HeroesCon. You can catch him in the pages of Vampirella/Lady Death, Sirens of the Cinema, and multiple Marvel and DC trading cards!

Big week next week, as we continue to flesh out our massive list--over 70 new names since April 1st!--and get ready for Free Comic Book Day on May 2nd!
