The following is an almost complete list of all the comics and graphic novel events, signings, and discussions taking place this weekend at the American Library Association’s Midwinter conference in Seattle.

In addition to the many comics publishers featured, attendees will also discover the occasional graphic novel title at smaller presses, as well as at those with dedicated imprints, such as Macmillan, Penguin Random House Publishing, and Scholastic.

As with any fan fest (and librarians are HUGE fans), I recommend that you check both your favorite authors’ and publishers’ online media for scheduled signings, and also visit the booths early to see the full schedule for the entire weekend. (And, if you get there early, you might score some free swag, such as totes, posters, t-shirts…)
