The Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Fest has announced a date, a new venue, guests and posted an AWESOME poster by Anders Nilsen (Big Questions, Dogs and Water). The second annual festival will be held on December 4th this year, at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church in Brooklyn, New York – a bigger space than last year to accommodate bigger exhibitor demand, according to the show. That’s hardly surprising. The show last year was a huge success in the eyes of this attendee, and natural growth is welcome.
The announced guest list is pretty jaw dropping. Lynda Barry, Charles Burns, Jordan Crane, Renee French, Sammy Harkham, Anders Nilsen, Paul Pope, Johnny Ryan, Gabrielle Bell, Jillian Tamaki and more.
Keep an eye on their website for updates and programming news. If you’re in the tri-state area this is definitely something you should check out. Admission is FREE (really!), the neighborhood is awesome and guests/exhibitors are great. Hell, I think it’d be worth it to fly in. See the city — make a vacation out of it!
The Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival is a curated comics fest produced by Brooklyn’s Desert Island Comics, PictureBox Inc. and Bill Kartalopolous.
