For those of you lucky (crazy) enough to attend San Diego Comic-Con this year, be sure to check out Famous Monsters and American Gothic Press at their new, larger booth (#1314) on the Exhibit Hall floor.

Then, be sure to reserve time on your schedule for their two panels:

On hand to discuss new comic book titles will be Thin creator Jon Clark and Killbox creator Tom Riordan. There will also be a sneak peek at the Forry Ackerman anthology tribute Tales from the Acker-mansion.
