After a week of scattered festivities (including Thursday’s discussion of French comics at the French Embassy, and the Spectacle’s animation screenings that continue through Sunday), the Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival arrives in force at today. Nearly 100 exhibitors, from publishers like AdHouse and Drawn & Quarterly to artists like John Pham (Sublife) and Jordan Crane (Uptight) will be on hand. Panel discussions take place from 11 a.m. nearby at The Knitting Factory; Chris Ware, Lilli Carré, Charles Burns and The New Yorker’s Roz Chast are featured guests. From noon to 7, Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church, 275 North 8th Street, Brooklyn, comicsandgraphicsfest.com, free; discussions and presentations at Knitting Factory.
