We promised to keep you updated and so here we are with more details and updates from the new Minneapolis-based comics/art/music festival, Autoptic. Back in February,when the festival was initially announced, the only special guest known to be attending was Jamie Hernandez. Well, Autoptic have been steadily adding to that list, with Marc Bell, Genevieve Castree, Domitille Collardey, Lisa Hanawalt, Kevin Huizenga, John Porcellino, Jim Rugg, Eleanor Davis, and Lilli Carre now also in attendance.

The official 2013 poster designed and illustrated by Anders Nilsen has also been revealed (see above),with limited prints of it available to buy on the day. Autoptic, a free to attend event, will be held at the Aria at the Jeune Lune on August 18th.
