short run Seattle

Oh man, we can hear your double-lined pockets jangling from all the coins to purchase our books this weekend at Short Run, the hottest one day comics show on this coast! We have some FANTASTIC debut comics and graphic novels for you as well as two outta town guests. You’ll find two of our finest cartoonists right next to us,Ed Piskor (M59) and Simon Hanselmann. Piskor’s Hip Hop Family Tree Vol. 2 and the Box Set are a hit across the country while Hanselmann’s practically sold out of Megahex, so you should scoop one up QUICK! Local cartoonist and legend, Jim Woodring, will also be signing at the Fantagraphics table. Pick up a copy of his latest and greatest collection, JIM, while you’re at the Short Run as well!   Signing schedule (a little subject to change but we’re all friends!) 11-1: Simon Hanselmann 1-3: Jim Woodring  3-5: Simon Hanselmann   Don’t forget to say hi to Josh Simmons at C13. We’ll be located at table M60 on the first floor when you come into Washington Hall. Check out the FLOG for more on our debut books for Short Run 2014!
