We are extremely excited to announce that Europe Comics will be making its second official trip to New York Comic Con this October. And we are coming with some great company! Joining us will be legendary French artist François Boucq (Superdupont; The Keeper), Italian comics sensation Zerocalcare (Forget My Name) and the award-winning creator of Esteban and The Man Who Shot Lucky Luke – Matthieu Bonhomme. All three creators will be at the Europe Comics booth #1659 daily, signing books and live sketching. UPDATE: Unfortunately, Zerocalcare will not be attending the scheduled events and signings. He will, however, appear via Skype during the panel at The Cooper Union.
