CAB and Heather Benjamin

This weekend the Hidden Fortress can be found at the first ever Comic Arts Brooklyn! Gabe Fowler, besides being a really sweet guy, and running my favorite store in Brooklyn (Desert Island), AND putting out one of the best comics newspapers in the country (Smoke Signal), he has been involved in organizing some of the best comic shows in the area over the last several years. Recently, he was one of the founders of the tour de force known as the Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival, and this year he's forging his own path with CAB. And we're excited to be a part of it!

After the show, Heather Benjamin has an opening at Мишка in Brooklyn, which I highly recommend attending. Heather is brilliant, one of my favorite illustrators currently working; we were lucky to have her drawings grace the cover(s) of the new MONSTER book. The letterpress covers she designed for the individual books are difficult to photograph clearly, so I thought this would be a good time and place to show off her work:
Volume 1

Volume 2

Volume 3

I'm looking forward to seeing you all there
