Jones, Kenyon, Morrison, and Steranko Heading To SDCC 2011
More Special Guests Announced for Comic-Con 2011
Jones, Kenyon, Morrison, and Steranko added to San Diego Event.
The SDCC website has released a list of some amazing new guests that will be attending this year’s Comic-Con. Among them one of my favorites:
Grant Morrison is one of the most inventive and critically acclaimed writers working in the comic medium, known for such titles as Batman: Arkham Asylum, JLA, X-Men, All-Star Superman and Batman, as well as his own creations The Invisibles, The Filth, Flex Mentallo, Seaguy, WE3, and Joe the Barbarian among others. Currently in year 5 of his epic Batman story showcased in Batman Incorporated, he will be launching The Multiversity in Summer 2011 and has more creator works in the pipeline. Random House will be releasing his first nonfiction work, Supergods, in July 2011.
San Diego – Comic-Con International: San Diego (Comic-Con), the largest comic book convention of its kind in the world, has announced two dozen additional special guests for this year’s convention. Artist Joëlle Jones, author Sherrilyn Kenyon, writer Grant Morrison, and writer/artist/publisher Jim Steranko join 20 fellow comics creators who have recently committed for Comic-Con 2011 in San Diego.
The first wave of 20 special guests was announced by Comic-Con in October of last year.
“We received great feedback from comics fans with our initial announcement,” said David Glanzer, Comic-Con’s director of marketing and public relations. “The addition of more special guests to an already stellar roster showcasing the best in the comics community is something our attendees have come to expect.”
Comic-Con 2011 will be held July 21-24 at the San Diego Convention Center. Passes to the show’s Preview Night on July 20 were sold out during this summer’s 2010 convention, although more four-day passes with Preview Night may be released closer to the show, depending on returns or cancellations. While there is still no specific date for the opening of general registration, Comic-Con expects it to occur before the end of January
