Falling Leaves, indy comics and ‘zines in November

Ah, welcome to November! Here in the Northeast the weather has turned chilly, and the leaves are falling like crazy. My favorite part of this time of the year is hauling out the crock pot and making a lovely slow cooked meal. We made this excellent chili recipe (sans the beer for gluten-free folks) and it was rich and delicious. I’m sure we’ll be eating it all week long!

Here’s couple of great events coming up in November if you are in the NYC area.

NY Art Book Fair at PS1.

If you’ve never been to PS1 in Long Island City, Queens this event is a great way to visit the former school turned art museum and pic up some handmade books or ‘zines. The whole museum is taken over by vendors and publishers from around the world featuring unique books, comics, art and other creations. I think of it like the coolest Comic-Con ever. Check it out this weekend, November 5th-7th


If you are looking for an actual comics event, head from Queens over to Brooklyn for the King Con. I’ve never been to this con but sounds pretty good especially for hearing from Brooklyn based artists and writers. King Con is on November 4-7th. Check the King Con Site for times and panel schedules.

Happy November!
