Chip Zdarsky, author of PRISON FUNNIES, MONSTER COPS, and without whose valuable assistance, COMICS FESTIVAL! 2007 would not have been possible.
In addition, we'll be giving away copies of COMICS FESTIVAL 2007, a brand new comic that features new comic strips from pretty-much everyone attending our Free Comic Book Day event, as well as new material from Darwyn Cooke, Hope Larson, Bryan Lee O'Malley, and many more creators!
