Already the subject of a number of books, a documentary film and likely scads of college term papers, the respected and eclectic comics writer Grant Morrison is earning a more fan-centric honor in 2012: his own convention.
Announced January 5, the people behind San Francisco retailer Isotope Comics and news and podcasting site iFanboy are teaming up to present MorrisonCon — a celebratory event which will feature the man himself as well as “9 hand picked comic creator superstars” — with an official website live at MorrisonCon.com.
The idea of boutique conventions isn’t entirely without precedent — Image Comics is celebrating their 20th anniversary this February with a San Fran convention, for example — however, most other uniquely focused cons come with a focus on companies, genres or other broad entertainment categories.
Little information is out right now for the particulars of MorrisonCon, including date or location, but fans can keep an eye on the site and here on CBR for more info as it becomes available. In the meantime, sound off on the CBR Message Boards with your picks for who the creator’s nine guests may be.
