Thanks for your patience, New York. As promised, we're bringing you our full panel and signing details for Comic Arts Brooklyn, which is next weekend! Drawn & Quarterly will be in town with a bunch of debut titles and three days of events with Aisha Franz, Julie Doucet, Michael DeForge, Adrian Tomine, Anders Nilsen, Lisa Hanawalt, Jillian Tamaki, and Art Spiegelman! 

Begin your weekend early at Desert Island - a new show of Julie Doucet's collage work is opening Thursday, November 6th, from 7pm to 9pm, and yes, Julie will be in attendance at this reception! This is a very rare opportunity to see what she's been working on as of late. Desert Island have already received the artwork and are teasing it on Twitter (!!!): 

Then, on Saturday, November 8th, bring yourself, your friends, and your pennies to Mt. Carmel Church (275 N. 8th Street), for a comics sale extravaganza! The fair is open from 11am to 7pm. You'll find Drawn and Quarterly upstairs, at tables U21+22, and we'll have these distinguished guests signing:

12pm-1pm: Julie Doucet and Aisha Franz
1pm-3pm: Michael DeForge
2pm-3pm: Aisha Franz
3pm-4pm: Julie Doucet
3pm-4:30pm: Adrian Tomine
