The Man of Action guys are a good get, Dinklage will be awesome, and it will be nice to add John Higgins to my Dave Gibbons signed Absolute Watchmen.

But... still hoping for a current 'name' Marvel or D.C. artist or two (getting a bit greedy now I guess, given how spoilt we have been lately with Aussie cons, and 2013 Supanovas in particular).

Dinklage and Holden are two must gets. Nobody that really appeals to Shanan yet though (she's already met the Phelps twins and Sean Maher) - hopefully that will change as more guests are announced.

I've already made contact with John Higgins regarding sketches.

Thanks mate! There's a wonderful selection of writers to meet and obtain signatures from as well as artists to get sketches from!

I'm sure that Leinil will be in demand and he mentioned that he will be doing bust pieces (or half-body) in grayscale for $350-$450 depending on the detail of the request.

You can see some of Leinil's half-body pieces displayed at CAF.

Anyone sitting on the fence about ordering a precon commission from John Higgins - go for it! He's just sent me through scans of the pieces he did for Shanan and me, and they look fantastic! Well worth the money in my opinion.

Hey Wrothy,

The scans of your John Higgins commissions looked fabulous! I'm tempted but am setting aside funds in the hopes of something from Leinil (fingers crossed).

I also have something planned with James Brouwer (The Deep) who will be attending Supanova Brisbane. Here's a print which he had available at a previous Supanova -
