Brand new today is an IDW-tacular update to the HeroesCon 2010 Guest List! Returning to HeroesCon this summer is our main man Steve Niles, who’s probably best known for 30 Days of Night, which he created with fellow guest Ben Templesmith back in the early days of now-major publisher IDW. Besides spawning a whole line of 30 Days Of Night comics, the original comic was adapted into a major motion picture, with the sequel Dark Days coming soon! Steve has also worked extensively for pretty much every major publisher, on books including Batman: Gotham County Line, Simon Dark, Freaks of the Heartland, and a ton more.

Joining Steve will be first-time guest Bob Schreck, one of the most influential and recognized editors in comics. Bob is probably best known recently for conceiving and overseeing the “All Star” line at DC, but he’s been a major figure in comics for over 20 years. From working at Comico in its heyday, to Dark Horse, then co-founding Oni Comics, then DC… whew!  These days Bob is Senior Editor at IDW Publishing, and is writing his very first comic there, the forthcoming Jurassic Park! Bob is sure to be a popular guest, not just with fans but with pros. Also returning this year is fellow IDW-er Jeff Webber, the director of the company’s e-publishing line. Jeff is a sweet dude and runs a mean panel–be sure and check out what IDW has planned for e-publishing–with the advent of the iPad this year, this is sure to be a huge new sector in comics!

Lastly but not leastly this week, our old chum Sarah Wilkinson returns to HeroesCon this year. Besides being a prolific illustrator and trading card artist for properties like Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and Spider-Man, Sarah is mondo popular as a convention guest and sketch destination. Be sure to get on her list early or you’ll cry salty tears all weekend!

Okay, more guests on the way tomorrow–we’re swamped this week getting our Free Comic Book Day announcements and advertising squared away, but there’s tons churning behind the scenes!
