We’re now less than 150 days until San Diego Comic-Con, and as we’re all waiting impatiently for news about Open Registration, Comic-Con International has offered another glimpse into the Special Guests they’ll be bringing to the show.
In addition to last week’s announced guests – which include Kelly Sue DeConnick, Carlos Ezquerra, Lev Grossman, Reginald Hudlin, and William Stout – CCI announced another five Special Guests.
From the official Toucan Blog, here’s the list of the five more Special Guests headed to SDCC:
- Hugh Howey, Author, WOOL Series
- Scott McCloud, Writer/artist, Zot!, Understanding Comics, The Sculptor
- Luis Royo, Fantasy illustrator, The Ice Dragon, Malefic Time
- Jillian Tamaki, Writer/artist, Skim, This One Summer
- Mariko Tamaki, Writer, Skim, This One Summer
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.
