26 February 2009 (Berkeley, CA) – This weekend thousands of comic fans will flood San Francisco’s Moscone Hall for WonderCon 2009 to meet their favorite creators and the publisher who brings it better than any other, the Bay Area’s very own Image Comics!
“Itâ€™s always fun to travel to conventions, but nothing beats the hometown show,” Image Comics Founder and Illustrator of the WonderCon Exclusive SAVAGE DRAGON #145 Erik Larsen said. “It may not be the biggest, but itâ€™s certainly one of the best! Plus, itâ€™s a particularly important con for me as this week marks the big relaunch of SAVAGE DRAGON! Iâ€™m excited to hear what the fans have to say about the big issue!â€
Throughout the weekend Larsen along with VIKING’s Ivan Brandon, ELEPHANTMEN’s Richard Starkings & Moritat, DARKNESS’ Michael Broussard and Top Cow Productions Publisher Filip Sablik and will be available at the Image Comics booth signing autographs and selling exclusive items! However, the convention doesnâ€™t truly begin until Fridayâ€™s Image Comics Show at 3-4 PM in room 103 featuring Larsen, Starkings, THE GREAT UNKNOWNâ€™s Duncan Rouleau and Champions Online writer John Layman with the first word on an all-new project! In addition, the already much coveted SAVAGE DRAGON #145 variant featuring President Barack Obama taking on Osama Bin Laden will be available starting Friday for a very limited amount of time with a select few fans randomly winning a copy during the Friday panel. If thatâ€™s not enough GODLANDâ€™s Joe Casey, PHERONEâ€™s Viktor Kalvachev, NEW BRIGHTON ARCHELOGICAL SOCIETYâ€™s Mark Andrew Smith and many more will stop by the booth!
Image Comics can be found at booth #407 during Wondercon, February 27 – March 1st 2009, taking place in the San Francisco Moscone Center.
