NYCC 2011 - First Few Guest Announcements!
Of course, the Number One pop-culture event of the year - the San Diego Comic Convention (SDCC) - has already listed their various guests on their website. And Red Dot Diva is sure more is yet to come, especially those related to Hollywood and mass media.
There has also been word that the exciting DC Comics one-shot graphic novel "Superman Beyond", which will be released in August 2011, will be showcased at SDCC!
But there have been many who were unable to go to this year's SDCC, due to the unfortunate online ticketing snafu. And therefore, many pop-culture fans will be making their way to various other conventions like NYCC 2011 or Wizard Con.
Just this month, NYCC 2011 announced their Guest of Honor - Eisner-award-winning Robert Kirkman! Robert, the mastermind behind "The Walking Dead" series, will be making appearances at the Image Comics booth and attending panels. Super-exciting news, indeed!
Other comic guests like Mike Mignola ("Hellboy"), Ivan Brandon, Cliff Chiang have also been announced. Red Dot Diva is sure that there would be more guests announcements to come before the convention in October 2011.
Press accreditation is already open and Red Dot Diva is trying her best to make her way to NYC this year for the convention. Wish her luck!
