Okay, every year I post a thing about Boston Comic Con, with a list of the guests I am interested in and my attempts to figure out what the heck they should sign.
Well, this year Boston Comic Con isn't until August, but I figured, it's never to early to start. Even though, of course, it is too early, as this guest list will likely be entirely different by the time the show comes around.
But whatever. Here's a look at the guests I am interested in so far:
Jimmy Palmiotti - This is the third year in a row Palmiotti has been listed as a guest in Boston and he didn't show up either of the previous two years. If he ever does actually make an appearance, I will be having him sign some issues of Jonah Hex. Likely #1, as well as the first appearance of Tallulah Black and the issue I already have signed by Paul Gulacy.
Sergio Aragones - He's also been listed multiple years and backed out, so I really have my fingers crossed that this year he makes it. Hopefully the presence of Stan Sakai will be incentive. Going to bring Groo #1 and Bat Lash #1 I think.
Carlos Pacheco - Absolutely going to have him sign Avengers Forever #9, i love love love the Kang cover and story in this issue. I'm not sure what else I am going to bring, though. EDIT: I will also be bringing Avengers Forever #4, because...
Jeff Smith: I'm going to be bringing something related to Bone, just not sure what yet. I will also be bringing his variant cover version of Avengers Forever #4.
Ron Garney - Captain America #445. I also have a Captain America #1 (volume... who can keep track any more) signed by Mark Waid, so I will be getting Garney's signature on that as well.
Stan Sakai - Groo #1 for sure! And I can probably find something else for him. I want to get into Usagi Yojimbo anyway so this is a good excuse.
Mark Waid: Need to figure this one out. I have met Mark before and had him sign Avengers #400 and Captain America vol. 2 #1 (or volume... something...) EDIT: I might bring The Fox from Archie, but I'mnot sure. The series has been cool enough, but not oneof my favorite things.
Those are the big ones so far. Here are some others I am interested in on some level or another:
Tim Bradstreet - EDIT: I'll be bringing Unknown Soldier #1 from the Vertigo mini by Garth Ennis; Bradstreet did the cover
Adam Kubert - EDIT: did some research and I'll be bringing Warlord #95 and #100 as well as Sgt. Rock #394.
Gail Simone - EDIT: I bought Wonder Woman #25 and #600 for her to sign.
Amanda Connor: EDIT - she worked on Wonder Woman #600, so there we go!
Skottie Young - Cool, but also unreperesentd in my current collection. Might need to get one of his variant covers, if I find one that appeals to me enough.
Mark Texeira - Running out of things to have him sign after seeing him twice last year.
Greg Capullo: Hm. I think he did some Quasar issues during Operation: Galactic Storm. Need to double check.
Hoping more old school legends get signed up before the show hits in 5 months. But this is already a lot of damn signatures!
