With badge registration just around the corner, San Diego Comic-Con has announced a few more guests!
Brian Michael Bendis
Writer, Ultimate Spider-Man, All New X-Men, Uncanny X-Men
Brian Michael Bendis is one of the most successful writers working in mainstream comics, currently writing Ultimate Spider-Man, All New X-Men, Uncanny X-Men, Guardians of the Galaxy, Daredevil: End of Days, Age of Ultron, and the hit creator-owned series Powers, Scarlet, and Brilliant. Brian is head writer of the massive multiplayer online game Marvel Universe and is working on a book called Words for Pictures, based on the graphic novel class he teaches at Portland State University. He is a member of Marvel Studios’ creative committee, which consults on their numerous ongoing film projects, including Iron Man 3, Captain America 2, Thor 2, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Avengers 2.
Writer, Ben 10: Omniverse, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic
Two-time Emmy nominee (Outstanding Original Song—Children’s and Animation, 2012: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic and Outstanding Writing in Animation, 2010: Fairly Oddparents) Charlotte Fullerton is currently co-story editing Ben 10: Omniverse. She’s written a wide variety of animation scripts for such shows as Kim Possible, Super Hero Squad, Care Bears, and Green Lantern: The Animated Series, as well as videogames, comics, and children’s books. Charlotte and her friends’ comedy short Troops was named the #1 Star Wars fan film ever by Time magazine. On a personal note, Charlotte is the widow of renowned writer/producer Dwayne McDuffie, one of the co-founders of Milestone Comics.
Writer, Sandman, American Gods, Coraline
Neil Gaiman is a bestselling author of award-winning novels for adults (American Gods, Neverwhere) and novels for younger readers (including the Newbery Medal-winning The Graveyard Book and Coraline, on which the Academy Award-nominated film Coraline was based). He has written award-winning short stories. He wrote comics before it was cool to write comics, including Sandman (which the LA Times called “the greatest epic in the history of comic books”). He writes songs and poems, does radio broadcasts, and even writes for TV, most recently winning the Hugo award for an episode of Doctor Who. He is not actually sure how many books he will have coming out in 2013, but he is intensely proud of his forthcoming novel The Ocean At the End of the Lane. 1.8 million people follow him on Twitter. Born in the UK, he currently lives in Cambridge, MA with his wife, the blogger and rock star Amanda Palmer. He has somehow managed to reach middle age without necessarily ever being able to find his keys.
Artist, Wonder Woman, Before Watchmen: Dr. Manhattan
Celebrating over 25 years in comics, Adam Hughes has won the Eisner, Harvey, and Inkpot awards for his illustrative work. Best known for his run of breathtaking covers on Wonder Woman, Catwoman, and Fairest for DC Comics, Adam has worked for many comics publishers as well as Lucasfilm, Warner Bros. Pictures, Playboy, Sony, Sega, and Sideshow Collectibles. In 2012 he returned to interior storytelling with Before Watchmen: Dr. Manhattan.
