The young counterperson noted the influx of […]
The Beat took pictures at CAB 2014! Some of them are Hipstamatic. Live with it. This was a good show, as usual. I came back with a bag full of books and immediately started reading them, one of the virtues of the home show. Although jam packed the show was surmountable, and I thought I […]

As the ecstatic reports on last weekend Comic Arts Brooklyn festival continue to roll out—the Secret Acres report is, as always a stand-out-one element of the show is mentioned over and over.
