Amazing Arizona Comic Con Aims To Beat Kapow’s Guinness World Record – Down In Robotown

20140126_093953

A couple of years ago, the North London comic convention Kapow won two Guinness Book Of World Records for the fastest produced comic book and the most creators on a single comic book for a special issue of Mark Millar‘s and Leinil Francis Yu’s Superior.

Well, Kapow is no more. And their world record has been beaten – judgement pending. 101 artists, twelve writers, two editors, for the most creators and the fastest produced comic book in the world. Down In Robotown.

Creators include Kyle Higgins, Brian Buccellato, Eric M Esquivel, Paul Jenkins, Marat Mychaels, Sina Grace, John Layman, Matt Nastos, hell it’s even been lettered by Bleeding Cool’s own Kickstarter-from-the-heart Shawn Demumbrum.

And now published and for sale at the Amazing Arizona Con with a Rob Liefeld cover. $10 per issue, a print run of 250, with portions of proceeds towards the Hero charity.

Thanks to Jesse James for passing us the scans – the comic hasn’t even gone on sale yet, and most of the creators don’t even know its available at the convention yet.

I mean, well, they do now… tables 1008 and 1010.
