Ninth Wave of San Diego Comic-Con Special Guests Announced

Do you have a badge? If so, you can finally start to be excited about these kinds of announcements! And if you don’t – well, we still expect someone to ask, “When is Open Registration? I’ll care then” in the comments.

The Toucan Blog has shared the next round of Special Guests headed to SDCC 2017:

  • Sergio Aragonés • Cartoonist, MAD, Groo
  • Mark Evanier • Writer, producer, comics historian, Kirby: King of Comics, Garfield
  • Sarah Glidden • Writer, artist, How to Understand Israel in 60 Days or Less, Rolling Blackouts
  • Denis Kitchen • Writer, cartoonist, publisher, comics historian

Special guests typically receive a special “Spotlight” panel during the convention, so attendees have a chance to hear their favorite authors and artists speak live.

According to CCI, they’ll announce additional guests next Monday – so keep your eyes peeled for more exciting announcements. You can also catch up on tons of other things and people who will be at San Diego Comic-Con in our Under the Tents updates.

Are you excited about these guests? Let us know in the comments.
