This weekend, CBLDF is heading to SPX 2014, America’s premiere literary and arts comics festival. The festival, which is held in part to benefit the CBLDF, kicks off on Saturday morning and runs a stellar exhibit hall and programming schedule through Sunday, spotlighting the best and brightest talents in the comics medium.
CBLDF will be on hand at booth W84-87 throughout the weekend. Brandon Graham (King City)will premiere his new sketchbook exclusively with CBLDF. We’ll also have signings with Graham, Emily Carroll, Michael Cho, Jules Feiffer, Ben Katchor, and Bob Mankoff! You can bet we’ll also have the best assortment of signed and exclusive premiums around, all benefitting our important work defending the freedom to read!
Brandon Graham will have an exclusive CBLDF Benefit Sketchbook on hand, along with his Image books. Jules Feiffer is signing Kill My Mother (brand new!) and Rupert Can Dance. Michael Cho is signing Shoplifter (also brand new!) with a special bookplate, and we will have a very limited amount of prints available as well. Emily Carroll is signing Through the Woods (another new one!).
