Cartoonists to watch out for

Thanks to a last-minute tip from tgeller Friday evening, I found myself hurrying to Modern Times Bookstore in the Mission to catch a book signing and presentation by Alison Bechdel and other queer cartoonists. The panel was in town for the weekend's Alternative Press Expo.

I wasn't familiar with any of the other cartoonists' work, but I'm glad to see the genre is alive and (reasonably) well. And now I have in-person-autographed books from three of my favorite authors - assuming you can count cartoonists as authors. :-) (The others are Ursula Le Guin and Douglas Adams.)
