It’s never too early to start planning as San Diego has just announced their first group of special guests for ’07.

The one we are most excited about is Lily Renee Phillips, the Fiction House artist. To quote the SDCC website:
Lily Renee (Wilhelms) Phillips is known to Golden Age comics collectors as one of Fiction House’s primo “Good Girl” artists. From 1943 to 1948 she drew covers and such features as “The Lost World,” “Senorita Rio,” and “Werewolf Hunters” for Planet Comics, Rangers Comics, and Fight Comics. With her then-husband Eric Peters, she also drew covers and interior stories for a number of Abbott & Costello Comics. Comic-Con 2007 will be her first appearance at a comic convention of any kind!
We were thrilled to find out that Renee was alive and kicking, and to see her feted at comics biggest show is indeed cool.
