We have a few cons in the Southeast coming up soon. We will be focusing on the celebrity guests for the cons for right now and when it gets closer to the cons themselves we will start including the comic book artists.

- Robin Lord Taylor from Gotham

Comicpalooza just started announcing guests. Announced are:
- Felicia Day
- Chad Coleman, Steven Ogg and Lawrence Gilliard, Jr of the Walking Dead. I do collect autographs from members of the Wire, and already having Mr. Gilliard, I’m looking forward to adding Mr. Coleman to my collection.

- Chad Hardin, illustrator for Harley Quinn. I know I said I wouldn’t do comic book artists just yet, but Mrs. Nola Nerd Couple is a huge fan.
