As most of you are (im)patiently waiting for news on Open Registration, Comic-Con International has offered the first official word on just who you can find at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.
From the official Toucan Blog, here’s the list of the first five Special Guests headed to SDCC:
Kelly Sue DeConnick, Writer, Captain Marvel, Bitch Planet, Pretty Deadly
Carlos Ezquerra, Artist, co-creator, Judge Dredd, Strontium Dog
Lev Grossman, Author, The Magicians, Magician King, The Magician’s Land
Reginald Hudlin, Writer/director/producer, Django Unchained, Black Panther animated series
William Stout, Artist/illustrator, The Dinosaurs
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 continue announcing five additional guests each Monday throughout February, March, and April, with the exception of the week of WonderCon – 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.
