In Waves by AJ Dungo

TCAF will also be the first place you can get your hands on two exciting debut graphic novels from some new stars in the comics scene!

First up is In Waves, AJ Dungo’s deeply personal and inspiring graphic memoir about love, loss, and the legends of surfing who rode the waves from cultural tradition to global phenomenon. Be sure to come by for advance copies, stickers, and limited edition bookplates while supplies last!
