First Wave of Special Guests for San Diego Comic-Con 2019 Announced

As most of you are (im)patiently waiting for news on the General Hotel Sale (we think you’ll hear something this week), 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 Toucan Blog, here’s the list of the first wave of Special Guests headed to SDCC 2019:

  • Leigh Bardugo • Author, Shadow and Bone trilogy, The Language of Thorns
  • Jon B. Cooke • Writer, editor, Comic Book Creator, Comic Book Artist
  • Rick Geary • Writer, artist, Black Dahlia, The Lindbergh Child
  • Gene Ha • Writer, artist, Mae; artist, Top 10
  • Arvell Jones • Artist, Deathlok, All-Star Squadron
  • Chris Ware • Writer, artist, Jimmy Corrigan, Rusty Brown Part I

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 four 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.
