We have been lovingly referring to this as Hillary-Con, as it is organized by the dynamic academic Hillary Chute. Books will be sold by Quimby’s and 57th St Books. And some swag will be provided by yours truly, D+Q.

Oh wait, you’re still reading? Well, good, because 40 lucky attendees will be able to attend a workshop with the MS! LYNDA! BARRY! HELL YES PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!! This may be the most epic meeting of the cartoonist mind ever. Personally, I’m just happy that all of these artists will be able to see each other, and spend quality time with each other. Oh to be a fly on the wall during these conversations!
