In a few weeks on November 11, 2017, is Comic Arts Brooklyn. The event is at a new location this year, the Pratt Institute. You can see a few alum there this year.

Sophie Goldstein will be there for the release of her graphic novel House of Women with Fantagraphics. House of Women is a sci-fi story about four women trying to “civilize” the natives of a distant planet. Get it early: They go fast.

Uncivilized Books will have their debut comic from Cooper Whittlesey (′16), Omens of a Normal Life, released earlier this year. Cooper’s comic is a “brief simulation” of something like life.

Retrofit will be there and should have Our Mother by Luke Howard (′13) , released last year. Our Mother is a comedy sci-fi, sort of, about growing up with a parent who has an anxiety disorder.
