Brooklyn report

    |    

I’m almost a week late on this post, but here goes. Only in its second year, the Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival has become one of the best shows of its kind in North America. Kudos to organizers Dan Nadel, Bill Kartalopoulos, and Gabe Fowler for the accomplishment.

Here’s Lynda again, posing with a fabulous knitted Nearsighted Monkey wristband. It was given to her at the show by her long-lost cousin, whom she had not seen in 20 years.

Vanessa Davis and Lynda Barry signed together just a day before glowing reviews of their new books were published in The New York Times Book Review. Lynda speaks here with Anne Bernstein, first-ever cover artist for D+Q (circa 1989); behind her stands former CCS student and D+Q intern (and fine cartoonist in her own right) Melissa Mendes.

It took nearly a dozen years: Anders Nilsen celebrates (sort of) the completion of Big Questions #15, the final chapter in the long running serial (which will be collected in a 600 page book by May). Jillian Tamaki signed Indoor Voice and talked about the fascinating exploits of her grandmother (who was apparently a famous bellydancer in circa-1950s Montreal nightclubs).

An early debut of Adrian Tomine’s new book (due in stores in February), Scenes From An Impending Marriage, quickly sold out at the show. Leanne Shapton brought a portable watercolor set for signing The Native Trees of Canada.

Kevin Huizenga signs Wild Kingdom; Keith Jones with Catland Empire.

One more time: the one-of-a-kind nearsighted monkey.
