HEROESCON GUEST LIST UPDATE :: ED MCGUINNESS! BILL WILLINGHAM! CREATUREBOX! & MORE!

It’s guest list update time again and HeroesCon is just a little more than one month away!

Ed McGuinness will be back again this June! Just look for the line wrapped around the aisles and you’ll find Ed at his table signing comics and drawing sketches for fans. If you need a reminder, Ed is known for illustrating titles like Avengers: X-Sanction, Deadpool, Hulk and Superman/Batman among others.  He’s truly one of the nicest guys in the biz so make sure you stop by his table and say hello!

Also returning this year is Fables writer Bill Willingham! Maybe you’ve been a fan of Bill since his Elementals days, or maybe you liked Ironwood. Bill also did some great art for TSR’s Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, look it up! Bill went on to write several things for DC Comics like Robin and Shadowpact before Fables really took off for him. Writing Fables and its various spin offs seem to take up most of his time these days. We’re happy to welcome him back for our 30th Anniversary!

The CreatureBox guys, Greg Baldwin and Dave Guertin will be joining us again this year. Last year’s 9 Lives, Spider Island tie-in was off-the-charts awesome! They’ll be doing some cool digital art demos with the folks from Autodesk, makers of Sketchbook Pro so be sure to check that out.
