The Maine Comics and Art Festival — which will be held Sunday, May 20th in Portland, ME — has announced its first two guests: Kate Beaton and Kazu Kibuishi. This is a nice show in a nice venue that has a strongly family-oriented vibe in amongst the indies. We’re not aware of too many shows that have so much kid-friendly material front and center and it’s good to hear the show is still going strong with a marquee guest like Beaton.
