Portland’s Rose City Comic Con is one of the premiere events in that comics-crazy town, and this year’s con—to be held at the Oregon Convention Center Sept. 10–11—has just announced a guest list that includes Mike Mignola and ‘Star Trek’ star Karl Urban, along with Chad L. Coleman (“The Walking Dead”), Terry Moore (“Strangers In Paradise”), Charles Soule (“Daredevil”), Jimmy Palmiotti (“Jonah Hex”), Amanda Conner (“Power Girl”), Stacey Lee (“Silk”), Matt Kindt (“Mind MGMT”), and Geof Darrow (“Shaolin Cowboy”).
So basically, a chance for us to post pictures of Karl Urban. However that senior Wonder Woman miiiight be even cooler.
The show drew 30,000 people last year and expects to get bigger this year. Artist Alley is already sold out, which is no surprise considering that you can’t swing a cat without hitting a cartoonist in Portland.
