Columbia Spectator: "Graphic novels do literary world justice at their first festival"

An excerpt from a nice/short article about The Brooklyn Book Festival:

"But while the traditional publishing giants of the comic book world have seen better days, the Internet is allowing for an explosion of comic creations online, many of them free. Present at the Festival were members of the web comics collective known as ACT-I-VATE, which publishes original material by a number of young illustrators, many of whom have gone on to sign major publishing deals. "By letting us post our creations live, for free, the Internet has given each of us the potential to cultivate a huge fan base," said Dean Haspiel, creator of ACT-I-VATE."
