We’re 128 days out from San Diego Comic-Con – and the closer we get, the more news that’s going to roll in. As it’s Monday, Comic-Con International has revealed another five artists and writers who will be attending the convention as Special Guests.
From the official Toucan Blog, here’s the list of the five more Special Guests headed to SDCC:
- David Aja, Artist, Hawkeye, Immortal Iron Fist
- Allie Brosh, Author, Hyperbole and a Half
- Michael DeForge, Writer/artist, Ant Colony, First Year Healthy
- Bob Layton, Artist/writer, Iron Man, X-Factor
- Paul Levitz, Writer/editor/publisher, Will Eisner: Champion of the Graphic Novel, Legion of Super-Heroes
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.
This week’s guests join the previously announced Special Guests Michael Cho, Tom Grummett, Chip Kidd, Jen Sorenson, Bernie Wrightson, Franco Aureliani, Art Baltazar, Kelly Sue DeConnick, Carlos Ezquerra, Lev Grossman, Hugh Howey, Reginald Hudlin, Steve Lieber, Scott McCloud, Jimmie Robinson, Luis Royo, Sara Ryan, William Stout, Jillian Tamaki, and Mariko Tamaki.
According to CCI, they’ll continue announcing five additional guests each Monday throughout March, and April, with the exception of the week of WonderCon – so keep your eyes peeled for more exciting announcements.
