Our friends from Charticon dropped by with a few announcements from next month's show, see below:
Arkvander wrote:Ready for some more announcements?
First off, we are happy to announce that we will be joined by another IDW artist at the show, none other than Brian Shearer! Brian has been working in the comics industry for several years on books such as Transformers, G.I. Joe, and Doctor Who as well as other titles. About 10 years ago he co-created his first creator-owned book, GravyBoy, which gave him the experience of creating and publishing a book from the ground up. Brian lives in Greensboro, NC with his wife, son, and a cat who likes to be petted at the most inconvenient times.
What's that? Not enough Artists for you yet? Then how about the talented John Wycough! John is an inker, Transformers fan, drummer, awesome cook, and member of Tsunami Studios. He has worked on many titles, (Star Wars, Fear Itself, Chaos War, G.I. Joe, to name a few) along with TRANSFORMERS!! (Last Stand of the Wreckers, TF:Robots in Disguise, TF: More Than Meets the Eye, TF: Infestation2, All Hail Megatron, Movie tie ins) Woot!-Woot! He tends to subconsciously live by the motto of the Wreckers, as he tends to Wreck-n-Rule when no one is looking.
Brian and John will hosting our "Learn to Draw Transformers" Panel on Friday Night!
But, wait, what? You still need more announcements? Then we are happy to announce to you our final door prize, PPO5W Weapons Specialist and PPO5M Medical Specialist! That's right, both will be given away as a set!
Oh and one more thing that I almost forgot to mention. For anyone who missed out on Aftershock, there will be one in our Charity Auction on Saturday night The Charity Auction is only open to preregistrants, so make sure you do it soon as preregistration closes this Monday night at midnight. Also if you are planning on booking a hotel room, our special rate also ends Monday at midnight.
Looking forward to seeing everyone there!

Does this mean we'll get another Charticon next year? Because I would really like that, since I can't make it this year.

What, you didn't think we would cover two of the Decepticon Double Targetmasters and leave out the third did you? Our last exclusive for the show is an upgrade head for the Botcon Spinister figure released in 2012, giving him a more IDW look from his recent appearance in MTMTE!
This head will only be available at the show and is limited to 50 pieces! While you are there, stop by the Captured Prey booth to pick up the awesome Nit-Picker and Firebrand by Mastershooter Collectibles to complete your figure!
A big thanks to Wheeljack's Custom Body Shop http://www.facebook.com/MrWheeljack for the design and painting and Megatron31 for the casting of this great head!

So wow. I can't get one request out without another exclusive showing up. Anyone going but not getting the exclusives? Drop me a line.

We certainly didn't plan it that way, we wanted to try and keep things simple but I'll never turn away some exclusive figs

Charticon is this weekend! I'll be there Friday through Sunday. There's a meet and greet patio party Friday night, and I'll be on the con floor the whole weekend, but I'll step away, for just a bit on Friday afternoon, to join the IDW artists panel.
As usual, I'll have prints, sketchbooks, originals, and will be available for commissions during the show. Here's a more comprehensive overview of what I'll have with me:
Also, I'll be participating in the Charticon Charity Auction, supporting A Child's Place. I'm donating a Transformers Prime : Beast Hunters #1 sketch cover:
Also, I saw there's a couple of Rage of the Dinobots series in the auction, winners are welcome to stop by and get them signed as well. I'm hoping it's a massively successful event!
Hope to see you there!
Oh, and one more thing. Charticon, NC + Discovery Shark Week = Sharkticon Week, on the Bad Flip Blog. Every week day I'll post a sketch of a shark themed bot...you know, for fun.
We start with Hammer Strike.[/quote]
