The Detroit News did, and their writer was pretty pumped by what he found:
Jay Fosgitt: Red 5 launched his Bodie Troll earlier this year, and it’s a hoot. I was lucky to snag a copy from him at Motor City Comic Con. He also did Little Green Men for Ape Entertainment.
Laurianne Uy: She’s the creator of Polterguys, a manga-style book that flips the harem trope on its head and has a girl moving into a house haunted by five guy ghosts. Sounds like fun!
Ben Hatke: Creator of Zita the Spacegirl, about a girl who becomes an interstellar hero from humbler beginnings.
John Green: Co-creator and artist of Teen Boat with Dave Roman, whose newest book is Astronaut Academy: Re-Entry. Teen Boat is a hilarious book, and if you didn’t get it last year when the collection came out, grab it from one of them this year.
John Gallagher: He created Buzzboy, a fun book about a sidekick. He also has Roboy Red.
Rafael Rosado: Rosado is the artist and co-creator of Giants Beware, a great fantasy graphic novel about a unabashedly non-girly girl.
Mark Mariano: This artist and musician has been to past KRC! shows, but not last year’s. He’ll be there with his band, the O>Matics, who play Saturday night at the cosplay party. He’s also an artist of the super cute Happyloo.
