Minnesota has a wealth of comic book and graphic novel artists, editorial cartoonists, comic strip artists, minicomic cartoonists, and webcomics artists. Many of them are featured in Britt Aamott’s new book, Superheroes, Strip Artists, & Talking Animals: Minnesota’s Contemporary Cartoonists.
Britt Aamott will moderate a panel on Minnesota Comics at the TC Book Festival at 1:30. Will Dinski is one of the artists on the panel, and his artwork is included in Superheroes. The International Cartoonist Conspiracy will have an exhibit booth at the festival, with artist Danno Klonowski, also featured in the book, as host. Copies of Superheroes will be available for purchase at the Minnesota Historical Society Press booth or Magers & Quinn at TC Book Fest.
FallCon, hosted by the Midwest Comic Book Association on the Minnesota State Fairgrounds, is this Saturday as well. More talent featured in Superheros will be at the show, including Zander Cannon, Dan Jurgens, Ryan Kelly, Bob Lipski & Brian Bastian, Gordon Purcell, Brittney Sabo, Barbara Schulz and Steven Stwalley.
Check out this fabulous video by filmmaker Joanna Kohler that shares its name with the book and features interviews and art by Zander and Kevin Cannon.
