Comic-Con Announces Its First 2014 Guests
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.
The full list of confirmed guests for the 2014 convention so far can be found here, with Comic-Con International promising more names will be announced soon.
San Diego Comic-Con 2014 runs from July 24-27 at the San Diego Convention Center.
