Home Con News RCCC 2017: Dark Horse Comics announce panels, signings for this weekends Rose...

Dark Horse Comics today announced their signing and panel schedule for this weekends Rose City Comic Con (8th – 10th September, at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, er, Oregon). And quite the line up of stellar talent it is, too.

Their plans include a fair few panels and a SHIT-TON of signings at their booth #711, from a few notable creators – to be fair, Dark Horse do have to represent pretty heavily at this event, seeing as their Headquarters are literally just down the road, so it would just be rude not to show up. The names making an appearance include the likes of Daniel Warren Johnson, Irene KohGreg Rucka, our very own DAVE GIBBONS, and plenty more.

Full details on what they are bringing to the show are below courtesy of their press release:
