Thursday rocked! Wooo-boy, no joke. Paul Hornschemeier and Philip Nel sign their books above. We were part of the Peanuts Scavenger Hunt and the let us use this bitchin' Woodstock stamp! Frantic moms and desperate children were all over the booth getting stamps and figuring out the quickest way to the next booth.
Associate Publisher Eric Reynolds checks out Ben Catmull's Ghosts and Ruins, a book he finally gets to see in person.
Eric Reynolds and Phil Nel, editors of the complete Barnaby by Crockett Johnson.
Love and Rockets' Gilbert Hernandez and Jaime Hernandez
From Arrested Development, Alia Shawkat was ooohhing and ahhhing over The Adventures of Jodelle by Guy Peellaert.
Shawkat is a big Fanta-fan she even showed me her Dan Clowes tattoo! (her long-suffering and patient brother in the background)
Gene Deitch and Justin Hall signed their copies of Nudnik Revealed and No Straight Lines respectively. Deitch reminded Hall that a permanent pen works best for signing (in comparison, Hall is the baby in the situation)
This young guy was at his first comic con and so happy to meet Gene Deitch!
This awesome fan came by the booth THREE TIMES on Thursday before deciding she needed Today is the Last Day of the Rest of Your Life by Ulli Lust!
The boys of Comic Bulletin hold up their favorite new releases from Fantagraphics: Danny Djeljosevic, Rafael Gaitan and Morgan Davis.
PR Director Jacq Cohen and I had our evening panel with Chip Mosher from comiXology and JK Parkin from Comic Book Resources. The first few people who answered questions got flights of vodka (there's a free tip).
Passed by the comiXology booth and they had a little Fantagraphics sign a-glowing.
Out and about at the CBLDF party, The Beat's Heidi MacDonald and Henry Barajas.
That's all for now but there's lots more to come! Keep it tuned here and especially to our Twitter feed!
