Special Guest-Joyce Brabner

Joyce Brabner is an award-winning author who frequently collaborated with her late husband, Harvey Pekar, on his American Splendor series. Her work includes the Real War Stories series, Activists!, Brought to Light (with Alan Moore), and Our Cancer Year (with Pekar). She lives in Cleveland Heights, Ohio. 

Winner of the 2015 Lambda Literary Award for Best LGBT Graphic Novel
A Village Voice Best Graphic Novel of 2014

The renowned graphic-book author Joyce Brabner's Second Avenue Caper is the true story of a tight-knit group of artists and activists living in New York City in the early 1980s who found themselves on the front lines in the fight against AIDS.
Struggling to understand the disease and how they could help, they made a deal with a bona fide goodfella, donned masterful disguises, piled into an "A-Team" van, and set off for the border, determined to save their bedridden friends by smuggling an experimental drug into the United States from Mexico.
With their community in crisis and the world turned against them, this impassioned gang of misfits never gave up hope as they searched for ways to raise awareness and beat the plague. Fast-paced, poignant, and beautifully illustrated by the award-winning illustrator Mark Zingarelli, Second Avenue Caper is a heartfelt tribute to the generation that faced down AIDS.

Jack Wallace:

Disposable Fiction is a one-shot anthology of 15 self contained stories ranging from five to
twenty pages each. They book is 126 pages long, including credits. All of these stories are in black and white. Each story has a different artist, but the same writer. The material of each story is quite different. In one story, a schizophrenic homeless man is driven to save a young boy in peril. There's a story where a gay man and a bachlorette move in together once the government passes a law that states that all single people must be married to someone of the opposite sex by the age of thirty. In another story, a forest nymph becomes human and takes over the corporation that is poisoning her forest. There's also an actiontale about a race across town to get into a secret spy organization. All this and still eleven to go.

Anne Knight Weber:
Anne Knight Weber loves to make books, but she is not a bookie. While in pursuit of a Masters in Writing she fell in love with telling stories using images. She was surprised and confused by the strong reactions her fellow writers and readers and teachers had to her work back in 2011. She finds it very silly to write about herself in the third person, but since she needs to get on with registering, it is too late to change personal pronouns now.
 Her comics and maps open up conversations on many topics, but she has been especially glad to hear from readers who were once afraid to share their experiences with the mental health challenges facing themselves, their families and their communities.
This is her first trip to a small press and zine expo and she is excited to see the work of more established comic artists. Thanks for reading.

Bruce Worden:

Best known (so far) for the picture book Goodnight Keith Moon, Bruce is sticking to his classic rock guns with his ongoing comic series Woodstalk: 3 Days of Peace, Music, and Zombies the forgotten story of the zombie outbreak during the Woodstock music festival. He's only about 1/8 of the way through the story so far, so he's probably happy to just be sitting at a table talking about comics for a couple days instead of slaving over them at his desk. So come say hi before he goes back home to Ann Arbor, MI with his wife and son.
