Author/artist James Owen is back at the show:

Marking his tenth appearance at the San Diego Comicon since 1986, James A. Owen will be exhibiting as Coppervale Studio along with Rich Henn/Club 408 Graphics at booth #1907 in the Independent Publishers Pavilion.

James will also be making intermittent appearances at the Simon & Schuster booth at #1017 to promote the upcoming release of the fourth Imaginarium Geographica novel, THE SHADOW DRAGONS.

Comicon exclusives:

– The debut of the HERE, THERE BE DRAGONS t-shirts, featuring black line art on teal colored shirts
– Advance Reader copies of THE SHADOW DRAGONS (VERY limited supply!)
– And Free Comic Book Day, Comicon Edition: Each day of the con (including Preview Night) we’ll be giving a free STARCHILD comic book to the first 100 people who stop by the booth. A different issue each day, and a great way to sample James Owen’s writing and art. Just come by the booth and ask!
