The Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival 2011 is happening this Saturday, December third in Brooklyn, New York. The event has become the go-to show for the type of art comics/comics art that we peddle here at Wow Cool, and a great many of the artists whose works we distribute will be at the show (Full exhibitor list). Many excellent new books will be making their debut, and we will be featuring several of them in the Wow Cool shop as soon as we can. Among the titles to look out for: Sam Henderson’s new book Free Ice Cream, š! #9 ‘Female Secrets’, guest edited by Ryan Sands from kuš! komiksi, Smoke Signal 11 with a Charles Burns cover and six pages of goodness by Michael DeForge and Benjamin Marra (also, look for the Steven Cerio designed Wow Cool ad in this issue), DeForge himself will have two new digests available, Zack Soto’s anthology title Study Group Magazine #1 (also with DeForge!), and the much anticipated Chameleon #2.
The guest list this year is simply stunning and includes appearances by Al Columbia, Gary Panter, Phoebe Gloeckner, Brian Ralph, Jack Davis, Lisa Hanawalt, David Mazzucchelli, John Porcellino, and Michael Kupperman.
