Comic-Con Announces 9th Wave of 2018 Special Guests!

This week’s special guest announcement has a theme: It celebrates the 50th anniversary of the publication of Zap Comix, jump-starting the underground comix publishing movement in America in 1968. Each of today’s announced guests worked in comix, either early on (contributing to Zap) or later (Weirdo), or somewhere in between. One of them is even the leading distributor of underground comix, then and now!

Today’s guests join the previously announced Rafael Albuquerque, Marc Bernardin, Thi Bui, Aminder Dhaliwal, Cory Doctorow, Mark Evanier, Emil Ferris, Brian Fies, Manuele Fior,  Andy Fish, Veronica Fish, Richard Friend, Alex Grecian, Elizabeth Hand, Deborah Harkness, R.
