Scott McCloud

Good news Bay Area, on August 23rd, Scott McCloud will bring his 50 State book tour to the The Cartoon Art Museum. Unfortunately, it doesn’t sound like he will be doing any of his lecture material, but an informal question and answer session is better than nothing. Actually when I checked Scott’s site last month this stop wasn’t even listed. If you want to go, make your reservations asap.

I just noticed Scott is also appearing at Comic Relief on August 19th and August 22nd at Inforum. Any news anyone might have about these events would be appreciated. Damn I wish he was doing a public lecture in NorCal:

    We’ve still got room at the CAM event. Yes, it isn’t the full-on PowerPoint presentation, but Scott’s a really entertaining speaker and it should be a lot of fun nonetheless. Call (415) CAR-TOON, ext. 314 to make a reservation.
