This year’s Comic Arts Brooklyn Festival will be held November 7-8, in the same configuration as last year — exhibits on the Saturday and panels on the Sunday. AND NO EXHIBITS ON SUNDAY — there was some confusion about that last year but I’m sure everyone will get the drill this time. The poster, by Mr. Daniel Clowes, has been revealed and with it a guest list

CAB, as the locals call it, is a very indie focused CAF that is tightly curated but delivers a high standard of books and programming. It’s definitely one of the highlights of the year for the New York comics scene. The guests list is a good mix of current stars (DeForge, Backderf), up and comers (Tsunami, Sakugawa) and returning veterans (Head, Kitchen) It should be a fine weekend.
