It's that time of year again! In fact, it's come a little early this year- just as you'll be finishing your Independence Day festivities, you'll be beginning your Comic-Con ones, making this maybe the best early-July ever? Drawn & Quarterly will be celebrating our 25th anniversary at San Diego Comic-Con International, and we'll have Jillian Tamaki, Michael DeForge, Anders Nilsen, Marc Bell, Gilbert Hernandez, and Peter Bagge at the party! We've got some pretty cool debuts, four titles nominated for Eisner Awards, and a whooole lot of signings and not-to-be-missed panels. Without further ado, our (and your) Comic-Con 2015 plans:
