Whoa.  
BookExpo America declared Saturday, May 31st Comics and Graphic Novel Day at the expo, and just added a "Graphic Novel Authors Breakfast".

"This breakfast panel will focus discussion on the evolution of graphic novel publishing from the underground comics scene through the category’s current explosion into mainstream bookselling."

-Jeph Loeb, American film and television writer, producer and award-winning comic book writer, noted for his Emmy and WGA nominations. Currently the Co-Executive Producer on the NBC hit show Heroes.

-Mike Mignola, comic book artist and writer, famous for his horror comic, "Hellboy".

-Art Spiegelman, an American comic artist, editor, and advocate for the medium of comics, best known for his Pulitzer Prize-winning graphic novel memoir, Maus."




Jeff Smith, Mike Mignola, AND ART SPIEGELMAN. Tickets cost $25.


Somebody needs to tell me it's okay to for me to go, because OMG YES. On the other hand, Jeff Smith (comic shop dude gave me a copy of his newest single-issue, RASL of which my book report is long overdue), Mike Mignola (I'm reading both B.P.R.D.: 1946 and Abe Sapien: The Drowning right now), Art Spiegelman (OMG), AND Neil Gaiman all in the same weekend?

...My heart may explode.



Eww. It's 2:18 and I have to be up at 6 to be at work at 7:30. NO BUENO.
