This weekend is the big con in San Diego and there is bound to be some Canadian comics news coming out of the event, besides the big publishing stories already announced this week. Here are a few links and stories at least tangentially related to the SDCC:
Item! D+Q sold out of the 300 copies of Kate Beaton’s Hark! A Vagrant! collection they brought to the con in just 9 hours.
Item! From Chris Butcher, the first and funniest picture from the con I saw.
Item! Jeff Lemire directs your attention to a promo poster for the Tales from the Farm movie based on his comic.
Item! New Bob Burden comics!
Item! For the second time, my local comic shop, The Dragon, has been nominated for the Will Eisner Spirit of Retailing Award.
Item! The Shuster Awards gang is at the con and they have a full listing of events at their site.
