My TCAF Treasures, Part 3: Books & Bag from Koyama Press

As with previous years attending TCAF, I made my stop at the Koyama Press table to chat with the awesome and amazing Anne Koyama (a.k.a. Kick-ass Annie), and to check out all the great books they had available this year. By the way, click on this comic mini-bio on Anne (by Dustin Harbin) to see why many of us think she is awesome and amazing.

Of course, I had to buy one of the Koyama Press bags … great color, awesome Kick-ass Annie logo, and a heavy duty, well made bag to boot (perfect for holding lots of books purchased at TCAF!).

I picked up Julia Wertz‘s “The Infinite Wait And Other Stories“, which I’m really looking forward to reading (have heard a lot of good things about it and it was nominated for an Eisner award!). And since it was previously known as “The Fart Party”, how could I not get it?!

Check out Julia’s website, and follow her on twitter at @Julia_Wertz.

And I was really happy to pick up a copy of Jane Mai‘s “Sunday In The Park With Boys” (a winner of a MoCCA Arts Festival Award of Excellence this year!). Jane was at the Koyama Press table, so I got to meet her and she signed my book for me. She’s super nice and very sweet. I was wearing my signature Nike baseball cap, hence her drawing the swoosh and “Just Do It” with her signing.

Such great books once again from Koyama Press! Thanks Annie!
