Meet Francoise Mouly, Bid On Art by Gilbert Shelton & Jeff Smith, & More At SPX!

If it’s the beginning of Fall, that means it’s time for the annual pilgrimage to SPX, the annual festival that’s Mecca for all things art comics!   CBLDF will be there with a benefit auction, and a booth boasting signings by Francoise Mouly and Chris Ware’s new GN Building Stories!

SPX is a non-profit festival that raises money to benefit the CBLDF, and other charitable causes.  This year’s event boasts one of the best guest lists of any con: Chris Ware, Daniel Clowes, Los Bros Hernandez, Francoise Mouly, and literally hundreds of the brightest talents in literary and art comics working today.

Visit the CBLDF’s table at the main entrance doors and check out our huge assembly of gifts to thank you for your donation! 

New Yorker legend and Raw co-founder Francoise Mouly will be signing at our table on Saturday at 2:45 and Sunday at 1:oo.

We’ll have a limited number of copies of Chris Ware’s new GN Building Stories.  We also have signed & sketched copies of Jeffrey Brown’s Darth Vader & Son, graphic novels from all of the show’s special guests, the latest CBLDF t-shirt by Masterpiece Comics‘ scribe R. Sikoryak, and other terrific signed books.

On top of all that, we’ve dipped into the CBLDF fundraising archives and are bringing a portfolio of Peter Bagge concept art and classic SPX show posters!

When the doors close on Saturday, don’t go anywhere.  A bar is going to be set up just outside the main entrance doors for the second annual Jeff Alexander Memorial Art Auction, featuring original art by Gilbert Shelton, Jeff Smith, Jeff Lemire, and much, much more!
