Hang Dai Editions will be tabling at both Grand Comics Fest and Special Edition NYC this weekend!
This Saturday, Josh Neufeld will be in the heart of Williamsburg at Pat Dorian’s Grand Comics Fest. Originally, it was going to be Neufeld and Hang Dai Editions co-founder Seth Kushner at the festival, but as everyone knows Seth passed away less than two weeks ago.
Seth’s presence at Grand Comics Fest and going forward will be forever missed, but his work will be there nonetheless, including his newest comic Secret Sauce. We’ll try to have Seth’s other comics on hand as well, including Force Field Fotocomix. And there may be some sort of raffle/giveaway to help raise money for Seth’s family (for his outstanding medical bills).
Josh will have copies of The Vagabonds, issues 1-4 (issues 3 & 4 being published through Hang Dai), as well as his books A.D.: New Orleans After the Deluge, A Few Perfect Hours, and The Influencing Machine. In other words: everything!
Other cartoonists scheduled to be at the curated show—which is open and free to the public—include such luminaries as Derf Backderf, R. Sikoyrak, Kriota Willberg, Jess Ruliffson, James Romberger, Marguerite van Cook, Box Brown, Paper Rocket Comics, and Ink Brick. Come on by!

This Saturday and Sunday, Dean Haspiel will be in Manhattan at Special Edition NYC, alongside Hang Dai Studios mate, Christa Cassano, artist of the upcoming John Leguizamo graphic novel, Ghetto Klown. Dean will have his Billy Dogma magazine, Heart-Shaped Hole and rare copies of the exclusive The Walking Dead cover he drew for Wizard World/Skybound for sale. Both Dean and Christa will be available to do commissions. In fact, Christa will render any superhero you’d like into the style of Furiosa from Mad Max: Fury Road. They will be at table E9.
