News from here and there:

Item: Some new TCAF updates have come over the transom. Guests that I haven’t seen announced previously include Dash Shaw, Kate Beaton, Joshua Cotter (SKYSCRAPERS OF THE MID-WEST), Evan Dorkin, Sarah Dyer, Rene Engstrom (Sweden), Tim Fish, Pascal Girard, Tom Humberstone (England), Jeff Lemire, and more. As well, Conundrum Press has announced they will be featuring 3 books at the Festival. Last year, the big event of TCAF was the appearance of Yoshihiro Tatsumi. A rare book and appearance (and new publisher) by Dan Clowes is sure to be one of the highlights.
