Saturday also marks the first national Independent Bookstore Day. Following a successful inaugural year in California, Independent Bookstore Day hopes to attract legions of literati the way Record Store Day rallies audiophiles to their local record retailers. No fewer than 17 bookstores in the Seattle area are joining forces in an unprecedented effort to draw attention to the wonders of the written word. Details of this promotion can be found in this story in the current issue of The Stranger, complete with cautionary comments from Fantagraphics Bookstore curator Larry Reid.

New York City - We know you have options in New York about where to get your free comic fix this coming Saturday during the national Free Comic Book Day holiday.

Starting at Noon the Union Square store will be hosting these top notch artists to sign copies of their books. Titles they'll have on hand include "Cosplayers", and Doctors by Shaw, and the award-winning, action-packed Hip Hop Family Tree series by Piskor.

Piskor's half features excerpts from all three existing HHFT volumes, plus the Rob Liefeld/Spike Lee commercial adaptation and exclusive pinups by R Crumb, Scotting Young, Jim Rugg, Ben Marra, and more...! Shaw's side delivers an all-new, 24-page issue of his thoughtful and funny exploration of human endeavor and social interaction as seen through the lives of two cosplayers. Enjoy the works of two of the great contemporary graphic novelists of their generation! With exclusive wraparound cover by Piskor.

Debuts:
The Kurdles  
 The Kurdles by Robert Goodin In the spirit of Hergé's Tintin or Carl Barks' Uncle Scrooge, The Kurdles is an all-ages comic spiced up with a teaspoon of strange. Sally is a teddy bear who gets separated from her owner. Desperate to find her way home, she stumbles upon Kurdleton, home to a most peculiar group of characters in the midst of their own crisis; their forest house is trying to run away! Printed in an oversized format to showcase Goodin's stunning, hand-painted artwork, The Kurdles will capture the imagination of both parents and children. Out in Stores: late April 2015 $24.99

Out in Stores: April 2015 $49.99
Violent Girls
• Violent Girls by Richard Sala (FU Press) A limited edition portfolio featuring 44 action portraits lovingly inspired by the kind of dangerous females who have populated pulp fiction and B-movies throughout the history of pop culture-blazing their way through every kind of genre, potboiler, cliffhanger, and fever dream imaginable.

Work in Progress
This is the ultimate sneak preview: Four artists will discuss graphic novels they are currently working on, showing pages yet-to-be-published from books yet-to-be-announced, and revealing material that lays bare their working methods. This session will offer a rare glimpse of work fresh from the drawing table, and will bring us directly into the processes of artists Kim Deitch, Sarah Glidden, Dash Shaw, and Julia Wertz, all of whom are currently working on new and surprising books. Moderated by Richard Gehr, author of I Only Read It for the Cartoons.

12:30 pm / The Matthews Room of the High Line Hotel
Alt-Weekly Comics
Beginning with the Village Voice in the 1950s and peaking with a wave of publications in the 1980s and 1990s, alternative weekly newspapers spoke with an independent voice to local communities, and comics were a distinct part of those papers' visual identities. Coinciding with the Alt-Weekly Comics exhibit currently on view at the Society of Illustrators, this panel will consider the phenomenon of alt-weekly comics with art director and editor Bob Newman (The Seattle Sun, The Rocket and The Village Voice) and cartoonists Ben Katchor, Michael Kupperman, and Mark Newgarden. Moderated by Bill Kartalopoulos.

12:30 pm / The Rusack Room of the High Line Hotel
Biography: The Lives of Artists
Memoir, non-fiction and biography have emerged as significant categories in comics. Comics about artists represent a special challenge: the cartoonist must represent the work of an artist through his or her own visual approach, revealing points of disjunction and harmony. Hyperallergic Senior Editor Jillian Steinhauer will discuss these issues with French comics legend Annie Goetzinger, whose Girl in Dior chronicles the first season of the storied fashion house; James Romberger and Marguerite Van Cook, whose 7 Miles a Second was both a biography of and a collaboration with David Wojnarowicz; and Dutch cartoonist Barbara Stok, whose Vincent makes Van Gogh approachable through a style completely unlike his own.  

MoCCA Guests

SATURDAY Night there is also a KURDLES Release Party as part of the BERGEN STREET TAKEOVER! 7pm join artists from Koyama Press, 2D Cloud and Rob Goodin for a blow-out! Bergen 

This year, MoCCA Art Festival will take place at Center548, 548 West 22nd Street between 10th and 11th Avenue.

Artforum
Cartoonist pioneer, Dash Shaw, is forever reaching beyond what we perceive and accept as comics. In the current issue of ArtForum, new on the stands this week, Shaw made a Top Ten list of his favorites in the art, publishing and just whole damn world. Here's a pic Dash took of the first page featuring Breakdown Press, a Quaker comic, a 3-D musuem artists use as a modern morgue (files of reference art), and our favorite Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum. Grab a copy at your local bookstore to read the rest of the Top Ten or visit the website!

Dash is currently a Cullman Center Fellow and is spending much of his time researching his own graphic novel on Quakers at the New York Public Library.
