Comic Lovers from around the planet are descending on San Diego for the Comic Con 2010 event that is starting today. And those that can’t make it are drooling from afar (BTW, the free Comic Con iPhone App can help us do that).Because this event has it all - if you are a comic lover/nerd! The special guest line up is enough to make those not able to get there weep! They have:
some of the hottest creators in the world of comics, ranging from the mainstream to the alternative…. also, of course, featuring Golden and Silver Age creators, sf/fantasy writers and artists, and longtime Comic-Con friends.
OK, you say, “enough of this blather, I want names, baby!” And there are some to make you green with envy!
Neal Adams - Legendary comic creator - prime mover on Batman, X-Men, Green Lantern/Green Arrow, and Deadman.
Matt Fraction - from Marvel, works on Immortal Iron Fist, Punisher War Journal, Uncanny X-Men, etc. He and artist Salvador Larroca won the 2009 Eisner Award for ‘Best New Series’ for Invincible Iron Man.
Stuart Immonen - also a Marvel marvel has worked for a lot of top comic publishers on such comics as Nextwave, Superman: Secret Identity and Ultimate Spider-Man. “Stuart is currently the top-selling artist on Marvel’s New Avengers“.
The line up of star artists, writers, producers and publishers is too huge to list here but that gives you an inkling - check out the full program of special guests on the comic con site.
OK - but if you are a comic lover/ love-the-TV-show kind of follower, then you are going to be more interested in those kind of stars. And there are plenty of them as well!
For example, on Saturday at 10:00-10:45 there is a Chuck screening and a chance to talk to the producers and all the series stars including (of course) Zachary Levi, plus Yvonne Strahovski and Adam Baldwin etc. Here is a great opportunity to find out about the upcoming season four (thanks to the devoted fan base) plus there will be a special video presentation.
This is a massive event - so check out the site - or get the free App to find out more.
