And here we are – the final stretch of official announcements, ahead of this year’s WonderCon event, returning to the Anaheim Convention Center next month. Three stellar names that join the roster of incredible talent already announced on the Comic-Con International Toucan Blog that includes Sergio Aragonés, Michael Cho, James Dashner, Delilah S. Dawson, Olivia De Berardinis, Larry Dixon, Mark Evanier, Matt Fraction, Sanford Greene, Chad Hardin, Mercedes Lackey, Hope Larson, Bob Layton, Jim Lee, Andy Park, Chris Roberson, Dave Roman, Marguerite Sauvage, Simon Spurrier, Margaret Stohl, Genevieve Valentine, Mark Waid, David F. Walker, Lissa Treiman, Chuck Wendig, Connie Willis, Judd Winick, and Chip Zdarsky. Phew!!
Far be it for me to say that they saved the best for last – you’ve seen the names listed up there, right?! – but these really are three cracking talents which have cast an impressive shadow over comics for nearly four decades, from the creation of a franchise that still pulls in audiences young and old, to the creative force behind an imprint that follows in the historic footsteps of comics lexicon:
- KEVIN EASTMAN: Writer / Artist / Co-Creator, TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES
- PHIL JIMENEZ: Writer / Artist, SUPERWOMAN / WONDER WOMAN
- GERARD WAY: Writer / Musician / DC’s YOUNG ANIMAL imprint, DOOM PATROL, CAVE CARSON HAS A CYBERNETIC EYE
Incredibly, tickets are still available for this event – but they’re selling fast. Click here for info on how to get your badges!
