Walt Simonson and Louise “Weezie” Simonson are coming back to HeroesCon!! Walt exploded on to the comics scene with Manhunter in the 70s and when on to influence generations with his incredible work on The Mighty Thor, X-Men/Teen Titans crossover, and X-Factor! Louise is a writer known for great runs on Power Pack, X-Factor, New Mutants, and Superman: The Man of Steel! We are honored these great creators and great people are taking the time to join us to celebrate our 30th Anniversary!
Herb Trimpe has worked on dozens of titles for Marvel Comics including The Incredible Hulk, Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Shogun Warriors, Godzilla and more. Of course he also illustrated that awesome 1st appearance of Wolverine in Hulk #181!
Georges Jeanty is like family at HeroesCon–the longtime penciller of the Buffy The Vampire Slayer comic series has also drawn Green Lantern, Superboy, Superman, and tons more! We’re happy he’s making the trek from his new home on the West Coast to see us!
