HeroesCon 2010: G.I. JOE Roll Call

I did this last year, and I figured I would do it again for anyone planning to attend HeroesCon 2010, our local convention here in Charlotte. Some of the bigger guests include Mark Bagley, Cliff Chiang, Frank Cho, Tommy Lee Edwards, Cully Hamner, Adam Hughes, Steve Niles, Tim Sale, Ben Templesmith, Ethan Van Sciver, and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola.

Superheroes dominate the scene, but for G.I. JOE fans, here's some of the talent associated with the property over the years:
  • Robert Atkins - Artist on IDW's 2009 G.I. JOE reboot.
  • Jeremy Dale - Artist on several of the comics released in 25th Anniversary two-packs.
  • Marc Deering - Inker on G.I. JOE: Snake-Eyes.
  • Tom Feister - Cover artist on IDW's G.I. JOE Origins.
  • Christos Gage - Cowriter of G.I. JOE: Cobra.
  • S.L. Gallant - Artist on IDW's G.I. JOE and the movie prequel books.
  • Michael Golden - Artist behind the incredible cover of G.I. JOE Yearbook #2 (which he signed for me last year).
  • Merrill Hagan - Writer on IDW's G.I. JOE Origins.
  • Rick Ketcham - Inker on IDW's G.I. JOE.
  • Eric Layton - Inker in DDP run.
  • Chris Stevens - Artist on G.I. JOE: Master & Apprentice II.
  • Rod Whigham - Artist on about two dozen issues of Marvel's G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero.
  • David Wohl - Editor on several of the later issues in Marvel's G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero.
  • John 'Waki' Wycough - Inker on IDW's G.I. JOE.
Unlike last year, it doesn't look like any of the larger publishers are going to have much of a presence this time. Check out the complete HeroesCon guest list, and get ready to enjoy one of the best weekends Charlotte has to offer all year.
