This Saturday is the Brooklyn Comics & Graphics Festival, an ongoing project by Desert IslandPictureBox and Bill Kartalopoulos –and it looks like it’s going to be a good one. Check out this lineup of special guests (not including all the exhibitors): Nine Antico, Blexbolex, Charles Burns, Lilli Carré, Roz Chast, Tim Hensley, Richard McGuire, Jonny Negron, Anouk Ricard, Florent Ruppert, Olivier Schrauwen, Adrian Tomine, Chris Ware.


The Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival is a one-day festival of cartoon and graphic art featuring artists and publishers displaying and selling publications; lectures and conversations on comics; and associated exhibits and satellite events.
