PLUS, the D Q booth will have a ton of great convention deals as usual, and every purchase gets a FREE Shortcomings poster, in anticipation of Adrian Tomine’s long-awaited graphic novel, coming in October. We’ll have lots of postcards & Lynda Barry’s Free Comic Book Day Activity Book as well, so come say hello to friendly D Q-ers Jessica, Rebecca and Tom, and check out our new stuff, and the classics too.

DEBUT titles will include Berlin #13 by Jason Lutes, and James Sturm’s America: God, Gold, and Golems.

I’d post the address of the convention center, but just go to San Diego and follow the stormtroopers and men in tights, you can’t miss it…Special thanks to Jackie Estrada, Sue Lord and Gary Sassaman for always being extremely helpful, supportive and professional to D Q and our cartoonists.
