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!
