Bay Area Peeps: LATINO COMICS EXPO at the CAM, May 7 & 8, 2011 THIS WEEKEND!

San Francisco, here we come! Right back where we parted from!

Like the boys in WAY OUT WEST, a gaggle of us L.A.-based cartoonists and more will be launching the first annual LATINO COMICS EXPO at the prestigious CARTOON ART MUSEUM in SAN FRANCISCO.

Looking for a great way to spend Free Comics Day on Saturday and Mother's Day (before the restaurant part...) on Sunday? Come on over!

All of the info is at this blog, where each post highlights one of the unique artists in attendance, from Hernandez Bros. MARIO HERNANDEZ, to your favorite locals: JAVIER HERNANDEZ ("El Muerto, Aztec Zombie"), JOSE CABRERA ("Crying Macho Man"), RAFAEL NAVARRO ("Sonambulo") and more. Even former West Coast resident RHODE MONTIJO, the great cartoonist ("Pablo's Inferno") and children's book author ("The Halloween Kid") is arriving from the East Coast.

The great part, too: most of the cartoonists in attendance will have brand new books to sell, including me. Looky here, the new trade paperback collection:

Yes, I'll have my El Gato, Crime Mangler books on hand, too (or else they wouldn't let me in the joint!)

Here's the blog entry about my work but check out the entire Latino Comics Expo blog for information on the show and beautiful imagery from all of the participating cartoonists.
