The annual National Book Festival took place last weekend in Washington, DC, where Jeff Smith was an invited guest at the first ever Graphic Novel Night Super Session. The inclusion of Graphic Novels was a smashing success with very long lines for Jeff’s signing and a jam-packed house for his presentation, which stretched late into the evening.
It was a great weekend for Graphic Novels, beginning with BONE being featured on the back page of the Washington Post’s ‘Book World’ supplement. [View the comic]
