Eleventh Wave of San Diego Comic-Con Special Guests Announced

With Open Registration now over, thousands of attendees can now breathe a heavy sigh of relief, knowing that they get to attend San Diego Comic-Con this July. And with that said, you can also start really getting excited about the thing that will be at the convention – including today’s Special Guests announcement.

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

  • Roxane Gay • Author, World of Wakanda, Bad Feminist, Difficult Women
  • Dean Hale • Co-author, Princess in Black series, Calamity Jack
  • Shannon Hale • Co-author, Princess in Black series; Author, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, Real Friends
  • Eric Shanower • Writer/artist, Age of Bronze; Writer, Oz graphic novels, Little Nemo: Return to Slumberland

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.

    I am hoping Eric Shanower’s panel is on Thursday or Sunday – mainly because those are the two days I could get a ticket for this year. Also looking forward to a lot of the off site stuff this year, and drinking in the Gaslamp District.
