Still More Guests

A ton of news for this entry.

First, guests, guests and more guests.  We're happy to announce that Whilce Portacio, Humberto Ramos, Steve Niles, Eric Basaldua (Ebas), Mike Mayhew, Sean Galloway and Francisco Herrera have been confirmed for this year's show.

We've also finalized the pencil pieces for this year's inking panel and auction.  The four pencils will be by Bill Morrison (Jane Wiedlin's "Lady Robotika"), Mark Schultz (beautiful woman and dinosaur), Alex Ross (Poison Ivy) and Jack Kirby (Captain America).  Many of our guests have agreed to try their hands at finishing one or more of the pencils, including Frank Cho, Joe Jusko, Dan Brereton, Tim Vigil, Ernie Chan, Tony DeZuniga and a host of others.  As with every year, this will be a fun and educational endeavor.  As finished pieces are received (I've gotten some finished pieces from Ernie Chan and Bill Morrison already), they will be posted in Super-Con's gallery at  

Anime anyone?  This year, Super-Con will feature an anime pavilion with super anime guests including Crispin Freeman, Laura Bailey, Travis Willingham and Vic Mignogna.  If anime is your calling, we'll be the place for you this year.

Media guests?  Yep, Bruce Dern (Big Love), John Dolmayan (System of a Down), C. Andrew Nelson (Darth Vader in Star Wars Special Edition), John Wesley Shipp (The Flash), Marina Sirtis (Deanna Troi from Star Trek: The Next Generation), and Jane Wiedlin (The Go-Go's and Lady Robotika).   More will be announced as we get closer to the show.

Tickets?  Yep, advance discount tickets are available via Paypal.  Just go to the website and click on the links.  Tickets are also available at many of the better local comic book shops.   Whether on-line or from your local comic shop, buy your tickets early and save over the price at the door!

Finally, Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti will not be able to attend this year due to other commitments.  We hope to see them back at next year's show.

As always, if you have any comments or questions, please feel free to drop me a line at  Hope to see you all at this year's show on May 16 and 17, 2009, at the San Jose Convention Center, South Hall!  Best, Steve Morger.
