8 Books to Find at Comic-Con
There’s far too much to see, do, find and run like hell away from during San Diego Comic-Con, so I always enjoy finding notable, specific lists of panels, projects and events that focus on the subject matter that most piques my interest. Over at The Comics Reporter, Tom Spurgeon has highlighted eight small-press projects to hunt down at this year’s show, offered up some ideas about where to find them and provided a synopsis of each project.
Here’s an excerpt from the list with accompanying image:
Permagel, Charles Burns, Buenaventura Press, Booth 1732
Get ready for this Fall’s big release of the Giant-Sized new volume of Kramer’s Ergot by getting a beautiful, over-sized Charles Burns import. Buenaventura Press always has one of the three or four must-see booths of the show because of the number of beautiful prints it offers. It’s fun just looking at that stuff, and a lot of it has to be seen in person. So does this book.
Spurgeon tends to be a pretty reliable guy when it comes to this sort of thing, as he’s pointed me in the direction of quite a few projects that not only became favorites of mine, but also did so well before they were celebrated in the more mainstream outlets.
