The Artist’s Alley is one of my favorite areas of the exhibit hall. While there, I met many artists and writers of popular graphic novels. On this aisle are items for readers of all ages. Here is a virtual tour of some of what I saw. There were free comic books featuring
G-MAN by Chris Giarrusso. Matt Phelan had teachers’ guides for his fantastic graphic novels. Kip Noschese was sharing his work in Otto & the Grand Prix Bees. First Comics was there with Tales of the S.S. Junky Star. You can read a review of it here. I picked up an advanced reader’s copy of The Creeps: Night of the Frankenfrogs by Chris Schweizer. I met the artists and writers of Teen Boat, Oddly Normal, Kid Beowulf, The Misadventures of Salem Hyde, A Brief History of Everyday Objects, Princeless and Graphic Classics Vol. 22. The last thing I did was pick up a copy of the CBLDF Banned Books Week Handbook for 2015. I had a great time. I hope you enjoy the virtual tour, and browsing the selections.
