  1. you left off Kate Beaton! She’s in New York now but she’s Cape Breton through and through! Plus her comics are wonderful (harkavagrant.com, Marvel’s Strange Tales, the New Yorker)

  2. Actually, Kate was announced as a guest for the show months ago! Calgary just got around to announcing everyone else.

  3. I’ve updated the article to link to Kate’s profile as well as the Artist Alley and Small Press area exhibitors.
