Let the Super-Con Season Begin!

While still six months out, we're starting to again provide one of the best guest lists of any convention and easily the best guest list for a convention our size anywhere in the world. If you want to go to a show where the ratio of guests to pros is as good as you can find, Super-Con is the place to be!

Super-Con will occur on May 16 and 17, 2009, at the San Jose Convention Center, South Hall. As with the past years, our convention hotel will be the San Jose Marriott -- a beautiful hotel complementing our awesome show.

Now that guests are starting to confirm their appearances, it's time to start announcing the list. Note that the guest list will continue to grow so check back here for more in the weeks and months ahead.

The following guests are now confirmed:

Jordi Bernet will be one of guests of honor! Jordi will be coming in from Spain and is known for many projects including Torpedo, Clara, Jonah Hex, Batman and many other projects.

Jimmy Palmiotti - superstar writer and artist (and writer of Jordi's Jonah Hex work), Jimmy will be returning this year to Super-Con.

Amanda Conner - superstar artist on many titles and the creator of last year's infamous breakfast cereal "Cho Ho's"! If you aren't familiar with this mouth watering treat, shame on you -- you should have been there last year!

Frank Cho - the Monkey Boy himself with more of his unique take on jungle girls, Mars maidens and best selling comic titles everywhere.

Bill Morrison - Bongo Comics (Simpsons) great and co-creator with Jane Wiedlin of Lady Robotika.

Jason Palmer - Painter extraordinaire of Serenity, Star Wars, Indiana Jones and many other projects.

David Williams - Hulk/Power Pack and some of the most amazing convention drawings you've ever seen!

Steve Mannion - Wally Wood at his "Mad-est" and you've got Steve's amazing take on comics.

Stuart Sayger - Another unique talent with an incredible style unlike anything you've ever seen before.

Michael Bair - From my biased perspective, maybe the best inker and finisher in the biz!

Ray Lago - Little Annie Fanny, Vampirella and many other titles - Ray's watercolors set the bar at Super-Con for everyone else.

We will again be featuring the ever popular inking panel (just wait til you see who our pencillers will be this year!) along with our auction of the finished pieces.

Dozens of more artists to come. Be sure to check back periodically.

Best, Steve Morger.
