Denver Comic Con announces Chris Ware and more celebrity guests for 2013
See Marvel's Stan the Man Lee at this year's Denver Comic Con.
Denver Comic Con streaked out the gate last summer in its inaugural year; in 2013, the popular fan convention is already on track to surpass last year's success, at least from the looks of the guest list.
Yesterday, DCC announced that New York Times bestselling graphic novelist and illustrator Chris Ware and True Blood actor Nelsan Ellis will be joining marquee guests Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee, pop-cultural hero George Takei, DC and Marvel Comics scribe George Perez and nerd-tastic actor Will Wheaton (among many others) at this year's extravaganza of cosplay, gaming, autograph hunting, geeking and gawking, which unfolds at the Colorado Convention Center May 31 through June 2.
Discounted three-day passes ($25 teen or $45 adult) are available now at the website through March 1, when they increase to $30 and $50. Single-day passes -- $12 to $20 for Friday and $15 to $25 for Saturday or Sunday -- will also go on sale on March 1.
