Meet these authors of ABC
For years now a fixed presence at Heroes Dutch Comic Con and again they will be present: the booksellers of the American Book Center in Amsterdam.
With the ABC pop-up bookstore a whole feast for all fans of comics, manga, SF&F books and Dungeon & Dragons will be present at DCC.
In addition to books and comics, ABC also organizes partly, in cooperation with DCC and publishing house Zilverspoor, the programme at the Cozy Corner, specifically the panels on writing and books.
