New York’s already busy fall season got one more show with the official word of the Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival, a new oft-rumored indie-centric show to be run by Desert Island and PictureBox. It’s a specially picked guest list, including Gary Panter, Jillian Tamaki, Charles Burns, Ben Katchor, Kim Deitch, Mark Newgarden, Michael Kupperman, Frank Santoro, Lauren Weinstein, Dash Shaw, Matthew Thurber, Jon Vermilyea, and Dina Kelberman.
Although it’s coming very late in the year — December 5th is the last date you can easonably do anything without running afoul of Xmas — this show wins just for having a Charles Burns poster. Plus FREE admission.
