Rounding out our week of FOUR updates to our HeroesCon 2010 Guest List, today we announce a bevy of all-ages friendly guests to the show. Franco Aureliani is half of the team (with artist Art Baltazar) who do the multiple Eisner-winning and New York Times bestselling Tiny Titans series from DC, and will be making his first ever trip to HeroesCon this summer! Franco and Art are also the creators of their own Patrick the Wolf Boy series! He’ll be accompanied by his studiomate (and also first-timer at HeroesCon) Jamie Cosley, who does the Nobody Likes Tony Pony comics, as well as Big Honkin’ Bug Nut. Which is a hard to beat title for anything, you’ll of course agree.

Joining Franco and Jamie in our ever-growing section of kids-friendly creators at HeroesCon is our old friend Marcus Hamilton, who handles the art chores on the daily Dennis the Menace newspaper strip. Marcus is a local-boy-done-good–after years assisting Hank Ketcham on the strip, he took drawing the dailies after his death and has been doing them ever since! He’s also one of the sweetest guys you could hope to meet!

Returning to HeroesCon this summer is Michael Dooney, who has been doing cover and interior art for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics for years as part of Peter Laird‘s Mirage Studios. He’s also a toy designer for properties including TMNT, Star Trek, and Star Wars!

Many HeroesCon attendees and customers in our store will be familiar with Ian Flynn, the writer of Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic Universe, and creator of the Young Salem miniseries. Ian is a sweet dude who LOVES to talk Sonic, so bring your trivia hats, because he’s ready.

And while he’s not technically an all-ages creator, we round out our update today with Gary Kwapisz, who worked for both Marvel and DC in the 80’s and 90’s, including titles like Conan and The Punisher. These days he’s working on stories for History Graphic Press including Civil War Adventure!
