Max Brooks, Kieron Gillen And Mike Costa Go To Calgary Next Weekend

Calgary Comic Con is held at Stampede Park, Calgary, from the 24th to the 27th. I won;t be there. But Bleeding Cool publisher Avatar Press. And publisher William Christensen is bringing a few star names along with him.

I mean, Matt Smith and Karen Gillan will be there too. But have they ever written a comic book?

Max Brooks, who will have the biggest queues, brought out by World War Z, to sign his new series Extinction Parade and graphic novel Harlem Hellfighters.


Kieron Gillen (who sounds quite a bit like Karen Gillan) will have the queue most dominated by female Loki cosplayers, signing Uber (but you can probably bring your Journey Into Mystery, Young Avengers and Iron Man with you).


And Mike Costa will have the most people demanding a fatwah on his head, after taking on Jonathan Hickman's God Is Dead.

Keep an eye on them will you? Make sure they're okay? And maybe grab a copy of Bleeding Cool Magazine while you're there…

Find them at Booth 1022 – 1122.
