The festival that was rebirthed in 2013 by the Society of Illustrators returns to recognize artists who are advancing the comics and illustration cause. In addition to an exhibit hall featuring comics’ cutting edge publishers and creators, this two-day party includes panel and discussions with invited guests such as Alison Bechdel, Robert Williams, Fiona Staples, Joost Swarte, Art Spiegelman, Francoise Mouly, and Bill Plympton. A number of books are also debuting at the fest including Peter Bagge’s Buddy Buys a Dump, Katie Skelly’s Operation Margerine, and Jesse Lonergan’s All Star. Attendees have the opportunity to get the John Hancock of some of the best in the business as well as get tips on breaking in. For those that fancy this artistic medium, you best be there with bells.
