And if not, do the next best thing and visit Cookie's webcomics! :)
Added by skoolmunkee so's everything stays on the main page:
Komiyan's Darken will also be there, according to the Exhibitor's page, as well as a few former DD'ers and some cool folks like Eddache, Scary Go Round, and Beaver and Steve. Tom of Gunnerkrigg Court has said he will stop by (not as an exhibitor though) so if you manage to spot him (I have no idea how) ask him all nice-like if you can see the book he printed.
Heck I'm even going to stop by for a few hours to have a look. :)
