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, this is the last wave of special guests, but there are often last-minute announcements, so we’ll wait and see. 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.
