Comic Non-Sans: Katsucon 2012 in the Artist Alley

First, a bit of business.  You may have noticed that we have been sans Non-Sans for a bit now.  As of now, we’ve decided that it’s going to become an irregular column, dealing with news and reviews and any big features rather than a week-to-week observational thing.  I think, at least on my end, this […]

Comic Non-Sans: Artist Alley is a Learning Experience
