It’s the last day of Comic-Con, and we’re ready to jam — Live Art Jam, that is — with Sonny Liew (The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye), Nate Powell (March), Chris Burnham (Batman, Incorporated), and Liz Suburbia (Sacred Heart)! It’s also your last chance to scoop up our exclusives at booth #1918.


CBLDF Live Art Jam • 12:15 – 1:45 p.m. • Room 5AB
Celebrate creative freedom by seeing art made right before your eyes!
