From the Toucan Blog, here’s the list of the first Special Guests headed to SDCC 2016:

  • Howard Chaykin • writer/artist, American Flagg!, Star Wars
  • Daniel Clowes • writer/artist, Eightball, Ghost World, Patienc
  • Brian Selznick • author/illustrator, Wonderstruck, The Marvels
  • Babs Tarr • artist, Batgirl

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 January, February, and March – 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.
