Super-Con 2009 was the first Super-Con show that I’ve been to, and it was an extremely enjoyable experience. If there was one word to describe the show, it would be “intimate”. Where shows such as San Diego Comic Con and Wizard World shows might be more formal and commercialized, Super-Con was stripped to the basics where it was just the artists and the fans. People walked up to artists such as Adam Hughes, drawing commissions all weekend long, and Frank Cho, who was working on The Ultimate Avengers # 1′s 2 triple gatefold covers, and just conversed with them while watching them work their magic. The air conditioning was magnificent, cooling everyone inside while temperatures reached in the 90′s outside. The booths set up had some great deals, and Artist Alley had long lines for artists such as Humberto Ramos, Eduardo Risso, Sean “Cheeks” Galloway and the always cool Talent Caldwell.
Of course, fan favorite artist Adam Hughes had his hands full with a full commission list in the first 15 minutes of the con. While he could only get to 6 commissions, those 6 fans were treated to some of the most delightful pieces of art that had to be seen in person to truly appreciate their awesomeness. The auction table was full of gorgeous pieces, drawn by the likes of Hughes, Cho, and Travis Charest.
The anime section of the con was eager to see their stars, especially Vic Mignogna, Full Metal Alchemist’s Edward Elric, and one could hear their cheers from one end of the hall to the other. Media guests for the show included the lovely Marina Sirtis, John Wesley Shipp of TV’s Flash series, Superman’s Margot Kidder, and Bruce Dern. There were a few people dressed up for cosplay, and the best costume had to be Kirby. This show had a little something for everyone, and I can say with certainty that I will definitely be coming back next year.
Well, the show is right around the corner, May 16th & 17th, 2009, at the
San Jose Convention Center, South Hall, 425 S. Market St. We are happy to
announce a few last minute guests.
MARGOT KIDDER has accepted a last minute invitation to attend this year.
Best known for her famous role as “Lois Lane” in the original 4
“Superman” movies by Warner Bros. in the 1980s with Christopher Reeve,
she has also appeared in almost 100 other TV and movie roles including
DARICK ROBERTSON, best known for “Transmetropolitan,” will be attending.
WHILCE PORTACIO, amazing artist and inker for such books as “Wetworks” and “Spawn” will be there.
HUMBERTO RAMOS has also joined the already great guest list for this
year. He is best known for his work on “X-Men” and “Spider-Man.”
All this great talent and the already amazing line-up including Adam
Hughes, Eduardo Risso, Frank Cho, Arthur Suydam, Howard Chaykin, Sergio
Aragones, Travis Charest, Michael Golden, Sean “Cheeks” Galloway, David
Williams and so many more. Also a star studded Media Guest line-up,
including Bruce Dern (“Silent Running,” “Big Love”), Marina Sirtis (“Star
Trek Next Generation”), Peter Mayhew (“Chewbacca” in “Star Wars”) and more, will make this one of the best two day shows California will have seen
