HEROESCON :: Jason Lutes, Scott Wegener, SCAD Young Bucks

Yes! We've been trying for years to get him, and at long last we can announce that JASON LUTES will be attending his first HeroesCon this summer! I sound pretty excited, huh? If you don't already know, Jason Lutes is the critically acclaimed graphic novels Berlin and Jar of Fools, and a professor at Vermont's Center For Cartoon Studies. He'll be appearing with CCS alums Joe Lambert and Chuck McBuck in Indie Island, so be sure and welcome him!

Speaking of cartoon colleges, today we're also adding a coterie of students from Georgia's Savannah College of Art and Design, who are appearing together as "The Temple of Cartoon Mojo." Their name, not mine, I promise. I KID, I KID!

And, while I haven't quite decided whether he would fit best in Indie Island or with the superhero guys, today we also added first-time guest SCOTT WEGENER, artist of Atomic Robo! I have a feeling Scott is going to get mobbed by original art collectors for sketches, so if I were you I would race to his table Adam-Hughes-style first thing that morning!

Okay! More to come--don't forget that Free Comic Book Day is going on ALL DAY tomorrow, with our 13 magical guests signing and sketching from 1-5! More info right here, yo!
