HEROESCON :: Steve Niles, Stephane Roux, More Join Swelling List!

Are you kidding me? This is the FOURTH big update we've made to our HeroesCon 2009 Guest List this week! For a total of twenty-six new names on the list! And that's nothing--next week we'll likely be adding more than thirty new names, so get your boogie shoes strapped on now: HeroesCon 09 is going to be IMMENSE!

Today's big update includes movie mogul STEVE NILES, whose 30 Days of Night you may have heard of, as well as the upcoming Freaks of the Heartland, directed by Pineapple Express and Snow Angels director David Green! Steve is also the writer of books including City of Dust, Criminal Macabre, and the recent Epilogue!

Steve is joined by fellow returning guest STEPHANE ROUX, who makes his second trip to HeroesCon this year! Hailing from France, Stephane has made quite a name for himself over here as a comics artist, with work on Birds of Prey, Supergirl, Action Comics, She-Hulk, and a ton more! He was also the big star of last year's Art Auction, netting the largest single amount paid for any piece!

But that's not all--also new to the Guest List today are:

ROBERT ATKINS, the artist of IDW's new GI Joe series, and a member of North Carolina's own Tsunami Studios! Robert has also worked on Ultimate Fantastic Four, She-Hulk, and much more!

REILLY BROWN is making his first appearance at HeroesCon this year--you've probably seen his work on Marvel's Cable Deadpool, Hulk Vs Hercules, New Warriors, and more. Be sure and give him a warm welcome this June!

SHAWN CRYSTAL, on the other hand, is no stranger to HeroesCon. Besides his duties as a professor at SCAD, he's also more recently been doing art for Deadpool!

ANDY SMITH is also no stranger--heckfire, he's one of our most regular store customers! His star is really rising lately, as artist on Dean Koontz's Nevermore, Superman Confidential, Stormwatch Phd, and more--not to mention his how-to-draw books, including Drawing Dynamic Comics!

SARAH WILKINSON is a sought-after artist, with dozens and dozens of trading cards to her credits for pretty much every company, as well as recent cover art on the Dark Delicacies comic!

Whew! Okay, more to come next week! Have a great Easter and Passover, everyone!
