Excellent news! I suggested Bryan as a guest a couple of years ago, so I'm very pleased to see this.
I've seen him give talks twice - once a general talk on graphic novel writing/drawing based on The Tale of One Bad Rat and, more recently, his talk about his latest creation, Grandville. Both were excellent and really interesting. I guess Grandville 2 will be well on its way to completion by Fantasycon too?
Really pleased I booked my "early bird" FCon registration now.
BTW I think Alice in Sunderland must be the best graphic novel ever. I remember him saying, with all the research and everything, it felt like doing a PhD, and shortly after that the University of Sunderland awarded him an honorary doctorate!
