Comic-Con Announces Its First 2014 Guests

Jane Espenson, Scott Snyder and Caitlin R. Kiernan are among the first guests announced for next year's Southern California pop culture marathon.

From our current location in the deep midwinter of 2013, San Diego Comic-Con 2014 seems very far away indeed. That's not the case, however -- a fact pressed home by the announcement of the first 20 guests of next July's show.

The first guests to be announced include mainstream comic creators, such as Scott Snyder, current writer of DC's Batman, and Saga artist Fiona Staples, alongside television writer and producer Jane Espenson, Disney animator Willie Ito and fantasy novelists Raymond E. Feist and Caitlin R. Kiernan.
