The Center for Cartoon Studies is proud to name Annie Koyama as our 2013 Commencement Speaker!

Since 2007, Koyama Press has supported and promoted some of the most innovative indie comics and artbooks available today. We are honored to have Annie Koyama speak at this year’s Commencement ceremony. Thanks, Annie!
