Danger Zone News Flash -- Don't be afraid, they're only cartoonists!

Meant to post this long time ago, but CCS faculty member Steve Bissette is taking a crew with him to a cool event this weekend in New Hampshire. You can get the full scoop at their web site  but here's the gist:

The folks will be at Comic Boom in Keene, N.H.,  this Saturday, Oct. 24, from 3 to 5 p.m. Steve will be signing copies of  "The Vermont Monster Guide," the book he illustrated. (Book cover designer/colorist Cayetano ‘Cat’ Garza Jr will be on hand also.) 

The monster squad of CCS alums and students will have their comics, prints and minis for show: Denis St. John ("Monsters & Girls"), "Werewolf!" creators/contributors Nick Patten, Josh Rosen, Betsey Swardlick, Penina Gal and Jon Chad; 2009 Ignatz Award winner Colleen Frakes ("Woman King"); William Volk and maybe a few mystery guests.

The scary fun continues later right around the corner with the Saturday Fright Special Spooktacular featuring Terence Fisher’s "The Brides of Dracula" at the Colonial Theater starting at 7 p.m. I bet the masses will be howling to win a copy of "The Vermont Monster Guide" Steve, Cat and author Joe Citro, and an original Bissette sketch of a Vermont vampire at the raffle.

Good luck ya'll!
