 Nate Powell is both an award-winning comic book writer and illustrator and a long-time Bloomingtonian. His book Swallow Me Whole won the Eisner Award for Best New Graphic Album in 2009, and he took home the Ignatz Award for Outstanding Artist the same year.

Nate will be at 12 Hour Comic Book Day from 4-5 PM Thursday June 16. This is his second year at the event, and all who attended last year's program had a very entertaining time with him and learned a lot about the writing, illustration, publishing, and marketing of comics.
