Good News and Some Not So Good

Congratulations to Jordi Bernet on his soon to be status as grandfather. Unfortunately the timing of his first grandchild's birth coincides with Super-Con 2009 so he had to bow out this year. He will be back for future shows.

While Jordi will be unable to attend this year, we do have a number of new guests to announce. First and foremost:

Eduardo Risso will be (so far as I know) making his first convention appearance in the Bay Area. Big thanks to Enrico Salvini of redsectorart.com for helping to arrange Eduardo's trip here from Argentina. Given that 100 Bullets will be wrapping up its award winning run, this should be a great time to meet Eduardo.

Arthur Suydam has also agreed to come out for the show. As The Man behind Marvel's Zombie craze, Arthur is as hot as they come and even more talented.

In a return engagement, I am very happy to announce that Adam Hughes and Allison Sohn will be back for the show in 2009. As always, Adam's work will be sizzling. Covers, statues (from the look of things maybe two distinct lines), posters, sketchbooks -- the man is everywhere setting the bar higher and higher.

The inking panel (and auction) will again return. I have the first piece, Lady Robotika (which debutted last year at Super-Con) by Bill Morrison. Lady Robotika is based on Jane Wiedlin, a frequent guest at Super-Con. The pencil art looks great and will be posted in a subsequent entry. I'm dying to see what our talented guests will do with this one. We've got three other pencil pieces in the pipeline which I will announce when received.

More guests and news next week. With the new year, I'll endeavor to post new information every week or two. As always, please feel free to direct any questions to me (Steve Morger) at either smorger@comcast.net or stevemorger@gmail.com. Many thanks for your continued support! Best, Steve.

Hello Steven,
I spoke to you in Phoenix @ a comicon about getting a booth for Super-con 09. How soon can I set that up?
