What to do at comic-con 2010

This year’s Comic-Con International attendees will be among the first to get a peek at—and maybe even a copy of—RIP M.D., the new graphic novel from Lincoln Butterfield Animation and Fantagraphics Books. Exclusive preview copies will be available at the Fantagraphics booth (#1718), at $12.99 each.

I've been fortunate to meet the guys and to finally see this beauty finished is exciting.

RIP M.D. was written and illustrated by Schauer, an Emmy® Award winning producer, writer and designer. Comic book veteran Mike Vosburg has brought his innovative, illustrative style to the artwork’s inking, and Michael Lessa and Justin Yamaguchi have created a whole new look for RIP M.D. with their cinematic color and special effects expertise. 

Comic-Con attendees can meet Mitch Schauer and Mike Vosburg during a special autograph session at 10:00AM, Saturday, July 24, 2010, also at Fantagraphics Booth #1718.
