ICAF Gears Up for Mid-October

imageThe Small Press Expo having just completed perhaps its last year at the old Holiday Inn in Bethesda, DC-area comics enthusiasts might turn their attention to the Tenth Annual International Comic Arts Festival, taking place at the Library of Congress on October 13-15. A full schedule of the show, which is open free to the public, is up at the ICAF site right here.

Highlights from my first glance are a Will Eisner symposium; a round-table with Kevin Kallaugher, Ann Telnaes and Tom Toles; an interview with Jerry Robinson; and a presentation by Fang Cheng (how many Chinese cartoonists have you ever seen speak?). It looks like there's a presentation of a scholarship named for Dr. John A Lent, which is great to hear. If I could have any scholar's knowledge of comics and cartoonists, it would be Dr. Lent's.
