Official Press Release
With Comic-Con International: San Diego 2002 going down in the record books as the biggest, best-attended ever, DC Comics would like to thank our featured guests: Brian Azzarello, Ed Brubaker, Tim Bruckner, Mike Carey, Steve Dillon, Yvel Guichet, Joe Kelly, Doug Mahnke, Scott McDaniel, Whilce Portacio, Eduardo Risso, and Bill Willingham.
We would also like to thank the many other professionals who spent time with us. These pros include comic book writers, artists, sculptors and colorists from all our imprints, as well as novelists, animators, and TV producers.
"Comic-Con 2002 exceeded all our expectations," said Patty Jeres, DC's Director - Sales & Marketing Communications. "We are in awe of what the Comic-Con staff and volunteers accomplished and grateful to all the DC freelancers who spent time with us. When you put so many comics creators and fans together in the same room, magic can't help but happen. Every DC staffer came away from the event with at least one 'San Diego moment' - the kind of thing that just couldn't have happened anywhere else."
While it's almost certain that not every professional who worked with us is on this list - and we apologize to anyone we inadvertantly omitted - we would to thank:
Kevin J. Anderson
Ramon F. Bachs
J. Scott Campbell
Ford Lytle Gilmore
Erik Ko and UDON
John Romita, Jr.
