Oh me oh my is SPX ever on us! I am typing this on the train to Washington, and let me tell you, this is going to be a killer SPX.


Find D+Q (Managing Editor Tracy Hurren, and me!) at booth W51-W54 in the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel and Conference Center, 5701 Marinelli Rd. We’ll have fresh-off-the-press copies of SPX guests Adrian Tomine’s New York Drawings and Chris Ware’s Multi-Story Building Model. In all, we have six D+Q authors signing at SPX, including Tomine, Ware, Daniel Clowes, Kevin Huizenga, Brian Ralph, and Dan Zettwoch, not to mention our whopping five debut titles!

This promises to be an epic SPX, complete with wonderful programming, nonstop author signings at the booth, and advance copies of many of our fall titles, so make sure to swing by and say hi! Signing schedule below, as well as a few key panels, but be sure to keep up to date on all programming by checking the SPX site.
