NCSFest – This Is The Week That Is

The NCSFest will begin this week Wednesday. And Steve McGarry is why.

For McGarry’s festival, comic art will be nearly everywhere downtown. Original work will be displayed at select businesses along Main Street and at 5th and PCH, popular artwork will be on display for free under the Big Tent at Pier Plaza, and more than 100 stalls featuring hundreds of artists, publishers and comic art organizations will be lined up along Main Street as it becomes an outdoor market.

That is from the L. A. Times article about the celebration just south of Los Angeles.

 

And even this close to the event, news is still breaking:

Disney legend Glen Keane, the Oscar-winning animator whose credits include Aladdin, Tarzan, Beauty & the Beast and Tangled and Stephan Pastis, creator of the hugely popular comic strip Pearls Before Swine, have been added to the list of more than 100 superstar guests appearing at NCSFest in Huntington Beach this month.

Reuben Award-winning Glen Keane and 11-time Reuben Award nominee Stephan Pastis will be there.

 

Don’t forget the live signing on Thursday May 16.

This Thursday, May 16th at The Hyatt Regency on Pacific Coast Highway in Huntington Beach is your chance to meet the creators of some of the most beloved comics of all time – including Zits, Baby Blues, The Family Circus, Mutts, The Walking Dead and more!
Join us from 5pm to 7pm in The Mariners Ballroom to get sketches and signatures and meet and greet these superstar artists. FREE ADMISSION!
