Canadian comic book creators at SDCC 2019 for Saturday, July 20, 2019

It’s that time of year again when Comic-Con International and the countless attendees take over San Diego.


I’ve scoured the Internet to gather together the latest and greatest information about the amazing Canadian comic book creators who’ll be showcasing their talents at the annual event.

Here’s some late breaking news about Canadian comic book creators and supporters.

Marvel announced that Spider-Verse #1 will go on sale this October. Written by Jed MacKay, the six-issue limited series will feature art by Stuart Immonen and others.

Comics Beat reported on the panel with Faith Erin Hicks and Rainbow Rowell about their upcoming graphic novel Pumpkinheads. When asked about how to get into the comic book industry, Faith said “if your work is good people will find it. Create things and self-publish and get things out there for people to see…self-publishing or using the internet as ways to get work out. “

Jeff was quoted as saying: “Skulldigger & Skeleton Boy is not only the next book in the Black Hammer Universe it’s also the first book in the next phase of Black Hammer projects we will be announcing over the coming months.”
