Frank Miller will be showing up at next weekend's WonderCon in SF. Also, a correction: Marie Severin will not be attending -- however lots of other folks will!

Legendary comics writer/creator Frank Miller will join what has become a spectacular line-up of guests at the 2006 WonderCon comic book and pop culture convention to be held in San Francisco on February 10 through 12, 2006.

Frank Millerís 20-plus years in comics includes a variety of notable contributions including a memorable run on Daredevil, in which he created the character Elektra. He rose to national prominence for his long-time association with Batman that includes the groundbreaking graphic novels The Dark Knight Returns, its sequel The Dark Knight Strikes Again, plus Batman Year One and the current best seller All Star Batman and Robin the Boy Wonder.

Millerís own creation, Sin City, became a big-screen phenomenon last year, when the graphic novel series was adapted to a critically acclaimed feature directed by Miller, Robert Rodriguez, and Quentin Tarantino. Sin City 2 is currently in the works and a movie adaptation of Millerís Spartan epic graphic novel, 300, is due out next year.

Frank Miller joins an already spectacular guest list that includes artists Mike and Laura Allred, artist and Mad Magazine contributor Sergio Aragones, artists Chris Bachalo, and Frank Cho, writers Peter David, and Mark Evanier, artist Ramona Fradon, creators Erik Larsen, Mike Mignola, and Terry Moore, writer Grant Morrison, creator Eric Powell, writer Greg Rucka, comics writer and film director Kevin Smith, writer Mark Waid, and acclaimed cartoonist Gahan Wilson.

WonderCon will be held at the Moscone West convention facility in San Francisco on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, February 10 Ė 12, 2006. Exhibit hall hours are Friday, 12:00pm to 7:00pm; Saturday, 10:00am to 7:00pm; and Sunday, 11:00am to 5:00pm.
