Save yourself some time at this year's show by taking advantage of the Kansas City Comic Con Commission List. Several of our 2016 creators are offering an opportunity to get your name onto their commission list prior to showtime.
Decide what you're looking for and who you'd like to get it from, then contact the creator directly and place your order.
Speaking of KCCC 2016 creators, we'd like to direct your attention to the work of one of our returning guests, writer Ryan Ferrier.
As many of you may know, Heavy Metal magazine has recently appointed Grant Morrison as the new editor-in-chief, and Ryan has a featured story in the debut issue (#280).
If you haven't snagged your copy yet, then get thee to a newsstand pronto.
Finally, this week, we'd like to join the rest of the comic book community in mourning the unexpected loss of a major figure in the industry, artist/writer/creator Darwyn Cooke.
By all accounts, he was a kind individual, whose amazing work speaks for itself. If you've not had the opportunity to experience it for yourself, check out the links below for some of our favorites.
