San Diego Comic Con catchup

Thanks to everyone who came by our booth in San Diego, not only for the Tatsumi signings but for the Adrian Tomine, Kevin Huizenga, Dan Zettwoch, Anders Nilsen, Ron Rege, Jr., Martin Cendreda, and Sammy Harkham signings as well. It was our best year ever by a wide margin and we have you to thank for our success.

Across the aisle, The Honeybunch Squad and Buenaventura Press. Left to right: Johnny Ryan (Comic Book Holocaust,) Carleen Cotter, Tim Hensley (Mome,) Souther Salazar (Destined for Dizziness,) Comic Art editor Todd Hignite, and Dan Zettwoch's hat.

The Fantagraphics folks. Left to right: Eric, Greg, Jason (Kramers Ergot and frequent Arthur contributor,) Zuniga, and Kristy.
