A world-renowned hero among modern cartoonists, Craig Thompson (Blankets, Habibi), will be making his first visit to the Locust Moon Comics Festival this year. And we couldn’t be more excited! Thompson’s newest book, Space Dumplins, just came out through Scholastic this fall, and it is an all-ages wonder of funtastic adventure, born from a master’s brush. But we personally know and love Thompson best for the standout piece he contributed to last year’s Locust Moon Press epic, Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream.
