Once again, STGCC exhilarates fans with its diverse east and west offerings!

Immerse in the fantastical realm of comics

Revered as one of the best characters designers of his time, Haruhiko Mikimoto is among the most respected and beloved illustrator, character designer and manga artist from Japan. Mikimoto has created iconic anime characters for the titles like The Super Dimension Fortress Macross, Macross 7, Gunbusters, Mobile Suit Gundam 0800: War in the Pocket and the recent hit Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress.

Digital artist Sakimichan charmed thousands of fans worldwide with her breathtaking fantasy art of characters from popular games, movies and anime. She is also extremely popular for her unique interpretation of classic anthropomorphic cartoon characters. Rarely participating in conventions, Sakimichan will be making her first ever Asian appearance here at STGCC 2016.


A well-received graphic novelist known for her surreal artwork and thought-provoking stories, Emma Rios has been working on comics full-time since 2007. Having illustrated for BOOM! Studios (Hexed) and Marvel (Doctor Strange, Amazing Spiderman), she returned to creator-owned productions in 2013, thanks to Image Comics. She has just published I.D., her first solo graphic novel, and currently co-edits the Island magazine with Brandon Graham.

Hwei Lim is further proof that regional comic book artists can make it big on the international scene too. Together, Emma Rios and Hwei Lim will present their collaborative work, Mirror: The Mountain (published by Image Comics), making its global debut exclusively at STGCC 2016. The first arc of a story about the mage-scientists of The Synchronia and the sentient animals of Irzah colony, the comic ponders upon existential questions. Mirror’s thoughtful story and breezy, beautiful art is a magical combination that will take your breath away.


Even prior to the official announcement, fans have been eagerly anticipating Stephanie Hans’ arrival in STGCC.
