In the past week Denver Comic Con has announced more incredible guests, and if you haven’t gotten your tickets already then you won’t be able to resist after more amazing guests have been added to next years event. There will also be a 2oth anniversary celebration that I cannot wait for.
The same day there was also another talented comic book icon announced that is one of my personal favorites. John Layman was also added to this years guest list, and you most likely know him for creating, penciling, and lettering the series CHEW from Image Comics. There is a lot of amazing comic book talent that was added to this years events, and John Layman is another added bonus. I can’t wait to see him and get some of my books signed by him at Denver Comic Con this year. Another amazing comic book writer was announced the same day, and he is also a personal favorite of mine and another amazing writer who has worked on Batman and many other titles. His work includes but is not limited to: Adventure Time, Adventures of Superman, Batman: Arkham Unhinged, Batman: Lil’ Gotham, Detective Comics Villains Month: Poison Ivy, Streets of Gotham, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles the New Animated Series. It will be great to meet such an amazing writer with work that we have all grown to love recently, and over the years.
The guest announcement that I found to be most exciting this week was Denver Comic Con’s announcement that they would be celebrating the Gargoyle’s20th anniversary this year by featuring programming ofGargoyle’s and Bioware’s game,Mass Effect. There are have also been some amazing guests added to this years event to celebrate the 20th anniversary. The guests joining us are actors Salli Richardson-Whitfield and Thom Adcox-Hernandez from Gargoyles and series creator Greg Weisman. I had the pleasure in meeting Weisman at last years event and his panels and meeting him was amazing. I am a huge fan of all of Weisman’s work and stoked that he is returning again this year. To feature Mass Effect the event will also have a session with Kimberly Brooks, Mark Meer, and Raphael Sbarge. You may also know Raphael from once upon a time and he also started acting in Seseme Street at the young age of five. Director of Denver Comic Con Dr. Chris Angel stated: “When we’re booking guests for DCC we try to provide a little something for every attendee,” said Dr. Christina Angel, DCC director. “Getting the ‘Gargoyles’ group together for the 20th anniversary and so many of the people behind Mass Effect provides synergy to the sessions we’re providing. What’s more, we’re always looking to add to these synergies—stay tuned for more ‘Gargoyles’ and Mass Effect announcements in the coming weeks, as well as other exciting plans still in the works.” There will also be more guests announced to help celebrate this exciting celebration at the con.
Denver Comic Con not only holds one of the best cons in the nation, but there are also some great benefits when you attend. The main benefit in going to Denver Comic Con is the proceeds go to
Comic Book Classroom, a literacy program for kids. Not only will you be attending one of the best cons in the nation, but you will also be contributing to what matters the most, our kids and future kids. Comic Book Classroom has excellent panels and activities throughout the con, and we felt like all 4 of our tickets were easily paid for in the activities the kids participated in. If you have kids, not only will they have a great time seeing some of their favorite celebrities, but they also get the enjoyment of participating in so many kids activities. There are even several panels for the kiddos on how to make their own comics, and they also will get the fun joy in making comics of their own. Even if you don’t have kids, you have the excitement of attending one of the best cons in the nation and also getting the joy of contributing to little ones while you are doing it. Comic Book Classroom arranges excellent after school programs at various schools across the state to help kids learn how to read, write, and write their own comics. For more information on Comic Book Classroom please be sure to visit their website and Facebook page. They also have excellent pamphlets you can print from DCC’s website. Please come and join us for all the excitement at Denver Comic Con next year and contribute to children just by attending
Tickets are selling fast so make sure to get them soon and don’t wait until the last minute. I also picked up my hotel today at the Hyatt. There are three hotels you can stay at during the event, and also make sure to pick up a room quick because they are going fast. You can find the hotel information on Denver Comic Con’s Facebook page as well as our Facebook page as well.
