Fourteen hours in a jet plane will get you
a sore butt all the way from First Second in NYC to New Delhi, India, where the third annual Comic Con India is about to take place.
Reader, I boarded that jet plane.
Comic Con India has a bunch of terrific publishers at their show this year, including several from English-speaking countries: First Second, Drawn & Quarterly, Fantagraphics, Random House, SelfMadeHero, and Top Cow.
Every country has its own comics tradition, just as every country has its own literary or music tradition. I can’t wait to see what comics in India are all about. Stay tuned! I’ll report back soon.
