We were able to head down to the Small Press Expo in DC this weekend!
The show was especially exciting for us because we were up for two Ignatz Awards, for Mariko Tamaki and Jillian Tamaki’s This One Summer and Gene Luen Yang’s Boxers & Saints. This is the first time in quite a few years that we’ve been up for an Ignatz!
We also had lots of great authors at the show, signing wonderful graphic novels!
MK Reed and Greg Means terrific their wonderful graphic novel The Cute Girl Network.
Farel Dalrymple’s post-apocalyptic drama The Wrenchies was a show debut for SPX! We were really glad to have Farel at the show.
Farel brought his original art, and it looks amazing (as usual)!
Farel did awesome little sketches in all the books he signed!
We also had Nick Bertozzi signing his New York Times Best-Selling graphic novel Shackleton!
We also had Dave Roman (with all-new blue hair) signing his hilarious graphic novel Astronaut Academy!
Jillian Tamaki drew lovely little sketches in copies of This One Summer.
And James Kochalka signed copies of his new book The Glorkian Warrior Delivered a Pizza!
We were delighted on Saturday night to learn that Mariko Tamaki and Jillian Tamaki’s wonderful graphic novel This One Summer had won an Ignatz Award!
Congratulations to Mariko and Jillian!
More authors! Including the wonderful Zack Giallongo, who is signing his upcoming graphic novel The Stratford Zoo Midnight Revue Presents Macbeth.
And Ben Hatke signs Zita the Spacegirl!
He drew adorable little Zitas in the books!
We had a lot of fun at the show this year, and so did our authors!
