Loc: Austin, TX
Here's an upcoming event in May that I think many would be interested in attending. Please note that this is an academic event being held at the University of Chicago. There will be no "dealers" per se although books will be available for purchase. THE ARTISTS WILL NOT BE SIGNING according to organizers.
Now why would you be interested?
Because there is a legendary list of creators who rarely attend conventions that will be there. Here's a short list of who will not be signing your books.
Crumb, Spiegleman, Ware, Clowes, Burns, Seth.
They will however be speaking, doing panels, and workshops et. al.
Loc: The placement is PERFECT!
And Chicago is such a kickass city.
I don't pick fights. I simply toss what I call cuddly, little fun bombs. Often these are mistaken for digs or digs in disguise. Despite not attaching an rsvp nor sase, they always seem to elicit a response nevertheless. I am told this is because I have a pugnacious, jackassery style of posting which requires me to be regularly reminded of how unpleasant I can be. - hockey&comicsguy
