It’s still several months away, but The Orlando MegaCon has released its initial list of guests for the 2009 convention.
Legendary artist George PÃ©rez will be the Special Guest of Honor at MegaCon 2009. In a 30+ year career in comics, George has illustrated Avengers, Fantastic Four, JLA, Wonder Woman, and a host of other seminal comics titles. He is hard at work on his next project from DC Comics, Final Crisis: Legion of Three Worlds.
